Externships
Externships are brief (usually 2-4 weeks) work opportunities away form the College for which credit is not given. Students seeking special work experiences may do so through externships, often during the third or fourth year of veterinary school. Private and corporate practices, humane societies, governmental agencies, and pharmaceutical/pet food companies offer externships. Compensation may or may not be offered for externships.

    • New York State Student Externship Law (read law)
    • Externship/Opportunity Block Survey forms are available in the Career Resource Center for students to provide and receive feedback on the various opportunities available.

Opportunity Blocks
Students in their 6th, 7th, and 8th semesters may obtain off-campus clinical experience for credit in institutional settings with established teaching programs, or in facilities offer unique clinical or research experiences not available within the Cornell Hospital for Animals.

Opportunity Blocks are approved by the Curriculum Committee. Details of this program are available for the Associate Dean for Clinical Programs and Professional Service.
