Memorial Cat Hospital is proud to offer an externship for third and fourth year veterinary students. Our program is for students who wish to gain active hands on experience in a feline exclusive practice. Our hospital setting is both general and referral, which ensures you the opportunity to see a wide variety of cases, both internal, surgical, and acupuncture. Students are encouraged to be involved with the cases as they arrive at the hospital.

Memorial Cat Hospital is an internationally recognized feline exclusive hospital. Drs, Folger, Pittari, McCaine, and Addleman are all active in the ABVP, AAFP, and VIN. It is the goal of our team to send you back to school with enough experience to enable you to competitively pursue employment in any feline practice. For more information on our hospital and services please review the website under services.

The externship programs generally runs between 1 to 6 weeks and we offer only 4 slots per year. Interested students are encouraged to contact us far in advance to secure a position. Only currently enrolled Veterinary Students will qualify for the Externship.

The closest airports are Bush International and Houston Hobby. The clinic is located 30-45 minutes from each airport, and if flying, the student will be required to provide their own transportation. Students are encouraged to actively participate in all aspects of veterinary medicine while staying at MCH. Therefore, proof of AVMA PLIT student insurance is required.

We hope that this provides you with satisfactory information regarding the externship offered by Memorial Cat Hospital.  Additional questions are encouraged, and should be directed to Dr. William Folger at (713) 461-2287, or catdoc323@aol.com.
