About the Program 

Medaille offers the associate degree in Veterinary Technology online or on our Rochester campus as an accelerated evening and weekend program, designed to help students achieve their educational goals. This program is designed for students who wish to earn an A.A.S. in Veterinary Technology degree but have work and family responsibilities that prevent them from attending a full-time day program. Successful completion of the program provides students with the necessary credentials to sit for the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE). In addition, the program satisfies the New York State Education requirements for professional licensure as a veterinary technician.
