Day to Day

In a typical day, I would monitor surgery patients vitals. I would assist the doctors in the room by holding patients while they are being examed and given shots or having samples taken. I would get the rooms ready for all appointments. I am also expected to be the go-between for the Dr. and patient.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

A basic understanding of animal behavior is always good. Any animal experience is helpful.

I would talk to your local vet about shadowing.
