What do most of the students who graduate from the vet science program do after high-school?

Most of our students go onto 2 or 4 year colleges/universities to pursue a degree in veterinary technology or work towards a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. We have senior students this year ALREADY accepting admissions/applying to: The Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, Wooster College, Hocking College, Coastal Carolina University, University of Chicago and MORE!

We have also had students who do not attend college who immediately went onto work in industry as a veterinary assistants, go onto grooming and/or animal training school.

What am I qualified to do after graduation?

After completing our program you will be a very well qualified veterinary assistant. A veterinary assistant can participate in patient restraint, procedures and entry-level medical skills. It is most easily compared to an STNA/CNA in a human hospital.

What qualities should an incoming student have?

  • Passion for animals and their medical care
  • Team-Player, ability to work closely with others
  • Positive Attitude
  • Strong Work Ethic
  • Strong Study Skills
  • Willingness to work in high-pressure environments
