VTH Internship Program

Are you Interested in Volunteering at the Veterinary
Teaching Hospital?

Student interns work a minimum of 6 hours per week in the clinics of the WSU Veterinary Hospital, learning valuable skills and gaining experience they can put to use in veterinary school and beyond.

How It Works:

Pre-Veterinary WSU and University of Idaho students are eligible to apply.

Applications to the program are due at the end of October, to begin interning in January, or April to begin interning the following August

Eligible students should intend on going to veterinary school after graduation, and must be able to participate in the program for the full 3 semesters, so preference is typically given to Sophomores and Juniors.
