  • Objectives
    Douglas College offers a two-year career diploma program that will prepare graduates to become valuable members of the veterinary medical profession. Students will be well versed in many fields of animal health care, animal management and laboratory procedures. The curriculum includes both theoretical and practical aspects of providing small and large animal nursing, assisting veterinarians and performing laboratory, radiology and anesthesia procedures. It is the goal of this program that graduates will be eligible to write the Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) and thus qualify for registration in Canada and in many parts of the USA as Registered Veterinary Technologists.

    There are both co-op and clinical components associated with this program.
