Alhambra, CA
Part Time

Want to take your long, grinding work days in the hospital and apply your skills and share your knowledge in a student environment? Want to change your routine for a day or two a week or just occasionally? Platt College Distance Education offers labs with students completing their RVT training to earn their license and needs DVMs to perform approximately 3 neuters and/or spays per day in an educational environment! The DVM would be involved in training these eager students in minor procedures (e.g. gowning, gloving, surgical and nursing skills, etc.). This is your opportunity to get your foot in the door of the veterinary academic world and hone your teaching skills! We are very flexible in which days you can report to these labs and how many individual days you would like to sign up for. There are a total of approximately six days in a sixteen-day period, spread out three times per year which need to be filled.
