Entering the Veterinary Profession

 

 

Becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM)
Based at Virginia Tech, the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine is the only program in the Virginia/Maryland/West Virginia region that provides post-graduate courses towards becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. This is a four-year post-graduate program. Veterinarians must be licensed to work in the state of Virginia.

Becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT)
There are two regional colleges offering veterinary technician programs accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association. These colleges are Blue Ridge Community College and Northern Virginia Community College. Both colleges offer off-site learning and two-year programs. Veterinary technicians must be licensed to work in the state of Virginia.

Becoming a Veterinary Assistant
Veterinary Assistants provide general assistance to DVMs and LVTs. Assistants need not be licensed to work in the state of Virginia, but their duties with regard to medical treatment are therefore limited. Many clinics hire assistants on a part-time basis, including after-school and summer help from high-school age students considering a future career in veterinary medicine. Berryville Avenue Veterinary Clinic and other veterinary offices often entertain serious inquiries for employment.
