Clinical experience for pre-veterinary medicine majors

Alumna and veterinarian Stephanie DeMarco approached our college with an idea of teaching, mentoring, and developing students’ veterinary skills. She's now teaching courses about the skills needed to work within a veterinary hospital and placing UD students in partner hospitals to use the skills they’ve learned. This fall’s Clinical Pre-Veterinary Experience I is followed by winter externships in veterinary hospitals across the country. In the spring semester, the experience concludes with an advanced course, Clinical Pre-Veterinary Experience II, and another for-credit externship in the summer. Learn more about the major.
