VetVance Logo


Enrollment closed.


Zoetis recognizes the critical importance of veterinarians for the bovine and equine industries. As such, we proudly sponsor the Zoetis Early Veterinary Bovine or Equine Externship Programs, an initiative designed to provide veterinary students with an opportunity to obtain real-world practice experience.

Students will work side-by-side with a hosting clinic and be exposed to different areas of bovine or equine veterinary practice. The externship lasts for four weeks over the summer semester. Zoetis offers each student a $2,000 stipend to offset travel, lodging, and other expenses students may incur while participating in the program.
