Timeline and Selection:
The Feline Health Summer Internship will begin in June and terminate in August prior to Fall semester, approximately 10-12 weeks. The hours and dates may vary each summer based on the NCSU summer school schedule. Interns are required to complete a minimum of 8 hours per week over approximately 12 weeks for a minimum of 96 hours. Approximately 3-4 interns will be accepted each summer and each intern will work approximately 8-12 hours per week. The NCSU professor will screen applicants and select Junior level (3rd year) students for the program. Upon selection, students will attend a meet and greet with the Shelter Veterinarians and the Shelter Manager prior to the start of the program. The internship will start with a 2-week orientation. During orientation students will receive a shelter tour from the volunteer coordinator, work one on one with a receiving technician (AHCT), and work a shift with the Veterinary team. Additional assignments may include webinars and select readings. Students will receive the animal handling policy and sign volunteer waivers and an expectations memo during the orientation.
