Columbia State’s degree in Veterinary Technology helps those students with a love for creatures great and small acquire the many skills needed to work with animals as a career.

A veterinary technician primarily functions as professional technical support to veterinarians, biomedical researchers and other scientists. Examples of responsibilities qualified veterinary technicians are educated to assume include clinical pathology, radiology, surgical assisting, office/hospital management and many more.

Interested applicants are encouraged to attend a Veterinary Technician program information session for an opportunity to ask questions and learn about the profession, the program, and the admission process.  Email to sign up for an individual or group information session.  Sessions are live, in-person, in the Health Sciences Building on the Columbia Campus.
