Two recent graduates of the Jefferson College Veterinary Technology program have been recognized for their scholarly excellence by being selected to participate in a prestigious year-long internship at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
Kaycelyn Alexander of Fredericktown, left, and Katie Baker of Chesterfield, right, were chosen based on their Jefferson College transcripts, reference letters, and application materials. The highly selective internship program accepts only four candidates from across the country each year. Applicants must be a graduate of an accredited American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) program.
During the internship, Alexander and Baker will gain practical experience and increase their knowledge in several core/elective rotations including after-hours emergency/ICU, anesthesia, cardiology, community practice, day ICU, day emergency/outpatient, dermatology, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, surgery, avian/exotics, rehabilitation, integrative medicine, and nutrition.
Jefferson College’s Veterinary Technology program combines general education courses and extensive course work in science and animal health theory and practice to prepare graduates for careers as registered veterinary technicians. Program instructors include Robin Duntze, Dana Nevois, Carleen Roberts, Cheryl Emerson, and James Fallert.
