UPEI veterinary college partners with Coastal Care for student placement opportunities


The University of Prince Edward Island’s Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) has announced a new strategic partnership with the Coastal Care Veterinary Emergency and Referral Hospital (Coastal Care) in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Under this collaboration, Coastal Care will provide external placements and rotation opportunities for AVC’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine students, allowing them to specialize in areas such as surgery, cardiology, internal medicine, anesthesia, and radiology. “We are happy to have additional educational opportunities for AVC students in Atlantic Canada,” said UPEI AVC interim dean Dr John VanLeeuwen. “Additional specialty care in the Atlantic region will also help to provide educational opportunities for the public and veterinary community.”
