At Hickey College, our Veterinary Technology faculty are all animal lovers and have real-world experience. Our smaller class sizes mean you will have plenty of hands-on instruction. You will also spend 8 weeks in an externship where you will practice what you’ve learned and make industry contacts!
Throughout the 18-month program, you will be learning in a simulated veterinary office, which contains industry standard veterinary equipment. Our facilities also feature a kennel, which houses dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, and more! You can also learn about large animal care.
The Veterinary Technology program contains all elements required by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA).
