Veterinary Learning Opportunities

If you're enrolled in a veterinary college or pursuing a vet tech degree, and looking for an intense, hands-on experience with sick, injured and orphaned wildlife, you've come to the right place. As one of the nation's busiest wildlife hospitals, we'll treat more than 13,000 patients this year. From North America's largest waterfowl, the Trumpeter Swan, to tiny hummingbirds, squirrels, rabbits, mergansers and robins, you'll have the opportunity to work with more than 180 different species of animals.

All positions require the pre-exposure rabies vaccine and a current titer report that you'll file with us. You'll be hands-on with all our patients and will be involved with keeping the hospital clean and sanitary for our patients.

Every year we welcome more than a dozen students from around the globe into our medical training programs. All positions are unpaid. You must have transportation to/from the center and housing. (we do not supply any of this)


We offer an annual paid veterinary internship to a licensed DVM.

Typically this is a recently-graduated veterinarian looking to solidfy their hands-on wildlife medicine experience prior to job searching. We've opened the application process for our 2020-21 DVM Internship. Learn More.
