Medaille Vet Tech Hands-On Experience

About the Veterinary Technology Program

Passion, persistence and the willingness to take risks will take you far in Medaille’s undergraduate vet tech program. Working shoulder-to-shoulder with active practitioners, you will learn true responsibility — responsibility to yourself, to faculty, and most importantly, to the animals. Emphasizing clinical courses and hands-on laboratory exercises, you have the opportunity to work with animals housed on campus, as well as equine and agricultural animals at large animal facilities and local farms. What’s more, should you aspire to become a veterinarian, you can take advantages of our articulation agreements with veterinary schools, including Ontario Veterinary College, which reserves two spaces for qualifying Medaille students yearly.
