Hi Grace,

So you are a little early for our program.

As a rule our program is for 3rd or 4th year vet students.

But certainly keep us in mind when you are looking for externships in your 3rd or 4th year.

I would suggest a job over the summer, or while you are doing your general courses at clinic or hospital that is close to you.

Good luck and Best regards
