Externship at MSPCA-Angell at Nashoba  Valley Technical High School

MSPCA Angell at Nashoba is a community veterinary clinic located at Nashoba Valley Technical High School in Westford, MA, which is approximately one hour to the northwest of Boston. The purpose of this veterinary clinic is to provide clinical training and education to the veterinary assistant students at the high school, visiting veterinary students/externs and interns, and to provide access to veterinary care for pet owners with low incomes.  Nashoba extern

At Angell at Nashoba, the veterinary extern can expect to gain hands-on clinical experience.  With some guidance and oversight from the medical director/attending doctor, the extern/intern will see medicine cases as the primary doctor and perform surgeries that would be performed routinely in private practice.

The externship can last for one to two weeks.  No housing or transportation is provided, so the extern will need to make arrangements for both.  The clinic is open from 7:30am – 4pm Monday thru Friday, and the extern is expected to be present during those hours of operation. We will accept one extern per week at this time.  Please note, any student scheduled for an elective at the clinic is considered a commitment-  if change is necessary, please contact Ms. Lisa Quinones at lquinones@angell.org at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled start date.

MSCPA-Angell at Nashoba will be open year-round except for the following holidays:

New Year’s Day, Patriot’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

If you would like to schedule a time to come to Angell at Nashoba or have questions about our externship program, please email Lisa Quinones at lquinones@angell.org.
