Student Externship Opportunities

Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital proudly offers personalized Externships to match the needs and areas of interest for every student. Come experience our hospital for a few days or a few weeks. We offer 1 on 1 mentoring by our board-certified specialists. You’ll find our high-volume caseload hospital to be fulfilling and a beneficial experience to enhance your training. We can schedule you with one of our many specialty services, such as Internal Medicine, Oncology, Surgery, Neurology, Cardiology, Exotics, or our fast- paced ER department.

We are proud of our status as an AAHA accredited teaching hospital, with a heavy emphasis placed on you getting the most out of your Externship. We are a progressive hospital with cutting edge technology. We have the ability to offer an in-house reference lab, ultrasound, echocardiography, digital radiography, including fluoroscopy, CT scan, MRI, radioactive Iodine therapy, laparoscopy, arthroscopy, endoscopy, ECG telemetry, and critical care monitoring equipment, for outstanding patient care.

At Metropolitan, you will get the hands-on clinical experience you are looking for, and be part of the exceptional patient care we provide our patients.

During your visit, we hope you get a chance to experience NE Ohio, and everything we have to offer, extensive Metropark system, fine dining, fine arts and culture.
