Introducing NextVet - the world's most paw-some internship experience!
Banfield Pet Hospital, the nation’s leading provider of preventive veterinary care with more than 1,000 hospitals and part of the global Mars Veterinary Health family of practices, is seeking pet-loving high school students ages 16+ for the opp-purr-tunity of a lifetime!
Our new NextVet internship – available for the first time in 8 major U.S. cities – comes with plenty of purrs and puppy kisses, but the job is far from fluffy. The paid position offers a valuable immersive experience while learning first-hand about the veterinary profession from practice leaders, industry experts, and most of all – from our passionate and caring hospital teams. If you’ve ever wondered about a career working with animals, we invite you to join us in delivering on our purpose: A BETTER WORLD FOR PETS.
What you'll be doing
As a NextVet intern, you’ll spend most of your time behind-the-scenes in one of our veterinary hospitals, where you’ll see our team in action and have an opportunity to shadow a range of positions including veterinarians and credentialed veterinary technicians.
You’ll also participate virtually in regular small group sessions exploring many aspects of the veterinary industry, such as how technological innovation is revolutionizing veterinary care, and learn more about other veterinary roles like those in research and shelter medicine. You’ll receive support from our local doctors and market leaders and have a chance to connect with Banfield’s senior executives.
Ideal candidates should:
- Love science and have an interest in animal careers
- Be curious and a self-starter
