Museum Veterinary Sciences interns will gain experience in the medical management and husbandry care of exotic species maintained in the Museum’s Living Collection including reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds, fish, and invertebrates. Interns will work with the Museum’s Veterinary Sciences staff under the direction of Dr. Daniel S. Dombrowski. They will develop their public speaking skills through the Museum’s Window on Animal Health (Window), an exhibit that allows visitors to interact with veterinary staff as they perform medical exams and veterinary procedures. Interns will also regularly interact with visitors at the Window while assisting with diagnostic sample collection and evaluations in the Museum’s clinical veterinary medicine laboratory. Upon
completion, students will gain a better understanding of veterinary medicine as it relates to public education and a natural sciences museum and receive a certificate of completion from VetPAC.
