Animal Medical Center of Greeneville is located an hour from the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. We are a full service small animal hospital. We offer digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, therapeutic laser, surgical laser, dental and dental radiography. Every day there are opportunities to further your knowledge in surgery, both soft tissue and orthopedics, as well as medicine cases. Our clients and their furry kids complete our day. We invite you to be a part of it!
Students will work closely with the supervising DVMs to gain experience in gathering patient histories, performing physical exams, creation of treatment plans, diagnostics, dentistry services, observing/assisting or performing surgical procedures, and medical management of patients. In addition to practicing their clinical skills, student externs will have the opportunity to practice their communication skills with the medical team, support staff, and clients.
An externship experience at an NVA hospital will give students the unique opportunity to understand the day-to-day operations of the practice, and to gain valuable hands-on clinical experience. Although every NVA hospital is unique, we all have some things in common: an environment that is supportive, committed to excellent medicine, and provides exceptional service to animals and the people who love them.
Most externship experiences at Animal Medical Center of Greeneville range from two to eight weeks depending on student and hospital schedules. All DVM students (regardless of class year) are encouraged to participate in NVA externships.
DVM students who are in the clinical portion of their education are eligible for a travel/living expense stipend. Click HERE to view list of stipend amounts and HERE for details on the stipend program.
