Stanbridge College launched the first Associate of Science in Veterinary Technology degree program in Orange County for veterinary technician and animal health care career training. Classes are scheduled to start February of 2014. In this video, Program Director, Dr. Myra Jones, D.V.M, M.S., talks about the new program, the new Veterinary Technology Skill Lab, and what students can expect in training for a rewarding career.
“A career in veterinary technology is a very rewarding career. You get to work with animals, help people, and make their lives better.” – Dr. Myra Jones, Program Director.
The Veterinary Technology degree program teaches students how to care for animals ranging from pocket pets like mice and gerbils to pets such as dogs, cats, and even horses, and cows. Students will have hands-on training in the new Veterinary Technology Skills Lab on campus that replicates real-world practice where they’ll learn skills in animal restraint, X-rays, dental hygiene, anesthesia, and surgical assistance. Students will also learn with licensed veterinarians and veterinarian technicians in real animal shelters to help animals who may be homeless, neglected, malnourished, or in need of medical attention.
