5 College Junior

Academic Experience at San Joaquin Valley College - Fresno: There is a lot of work to do since it is an accelerated program but the instructors make it so we are not completely overwhelmed. We have already had hands on experience. They provide externships for us to get experience in the real world which is great because we don't have to worry about finding an externship for the program. We do not get breaks, such as spring or summer break, because it is an accelerated program but we all love the program so much that we don't mind. I am glad it is an accelerated program because we get to start our career sooner. Something that is very unique about our program is that we work on our own pets and the instructors pets. The first day of school the instructor told us that she brings in her pets and would not let us work on them if she did not trust or believe that we had the skill and knowledge to do so. She said that we may ace all exams but if we do not master the skills for the specific classes we will not pass the class. This proves that they care about our education and will not pass us unless we have proven to be dependable technicians. The program is challenging but the instructors are very helpful and give us many resources to become amazing veterinary technicians.
