BETTER POSITIONING FOR INTERNSHIPS

Interested in pursuing a specialty? By starting in January 2023, you can be practice-ready by May 2026—which is right before the time of year many specialty internships begin. This makes it the perfect time for securing an internship after graduation.

PREPARE FOR THE NAVLE

The North American Veterinary Licensing Examination ® (NAVLE ®) is administered each November. Starting in January 2023 positions you to begin your clinical training in May 2025. This means you’ll have a whole six months to prepare and accumulate real-world clinical experience before taking the NAVLE!
