BC launches pilot program to place veterinary students in clinics serving livestock, farm animals

The Government of British Columbia is piloting a placement program for veterinary students that will improve access to care for livestock and farm animals. Participating students will spend the summer working in veterinary clinics that offer services for livestock and farm animals, providing much-needed labour while gaining hands-on experience and developing their veterinary skills. The $300K pilot program will provide up to $6K per student placement to cover wages and travel costs. “This new funding will facilitate students to learn on the job and will help support our hardworking and very busy large-animal veterinarians throughout BC,” said Society of BC Veterinarians President Dr Fraser Davidson.
