Volunteer Opportunities

Heritage Animal Hospital offers a variety of volunteer experiences and training for many different situations and takes pride in mentoring and helping students become educated to enter the veterinary field.

  • Tours: For groups wanting to learn a little about veterinary medicine - get the behind the scenes tour, see some of the unique things we deal with on a day to day basis, as well as have some question and answer time with the doctors or technicians.
  • Career shadow:  For those thinking of entering the veterinary field, usually junior high, high school, undergraduate, or first year veterinary technician students -  spend a day or a few with us to see what the veterinary field is all about.
  • Preceptorship:  For first year veterinary school students, usually set up through the University of Minnesota, spend 12+ hours over a couple of days completing a list of skills and seeing how a typical day in a veterinary clinic works.
  • Internships:  For pre-veterinary students or veterinary technician students from Argosy University or Minnesota School of Business Globe University spend 200-400 hours (or as required by your specific program) practicing skills and learning how a typical practice runs in preparation for becoming a certified veterinary technician or entering veterinary school.
  • Externships:  Fourth year senior veterinary students spend 2-4 weeks (or as required by your specific program) practicing veterinary skills in the exam room and beyond in preparation of graduation and entering the veterinary field. This is usually set up through the University of Minnesota or University of Wisconsin, but other programs welcome as well.

Please contact us if you are interested in setting any of these up. We generally have a large number of student requests and try to limit the number of students present at the same time so each student gets the best experience, so please call to set up your experience early if you are interested.
