Vet Tech Field Beckons, Even in an Uncertain Economy

Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n1 p50-51 Jan 2010
In a time of rising unemployment and increasing economic uncertainty, some fields still beckon with promises of continued growth, bright futures and handsome paychecks. And one of the most promising of all is the field of veterinary technology. This article features the Veterinary Technology Program at St. Petersburg College (SPC) in Florida. SPC's vet tech program is hot, in part because the program is available completely online. Students far beyond the confines of Florida can sign up and earn a two- or four-year degree and never set foot in a classroom. Clinical work is accomplished in local veterinary hospitals, clinics or practices that SPC approves of in advance. The SPC vet tech program is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). The course of study includes education covering large animals, small animals, lab animals, birds, and exotic animals.
