Love teaching? Love learning interesting medicine? Love caring for patients?
Has working on a small team in a big organization ever tempted you? Academic veterinary hospitals are great places to work. Longtime staff have scores of student, house officer, and faculty friends they have made over the years fulfilling the three missions of the college – teaching, patient care and research. Working in a big organization also means, if you are interested in non-clinical arenas like event planning or leadership, opportunity exists. Our two current neurology technicians recently planned and lead a “Cornell Kids@work” event at the veterinary school for the whole university community.
