City College
The Veterinary Technology Program at City College is a comprehensive entry-level program designed to prepare the student for a career as a veterinary technician. Students will take a variety of didactic and hands-on clinical courses, covering all of the areas in which technicians will be expected to perform in the workplace.

The integration of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice will help the student transition from the academic/clinical environment into the workplace upon graduation.
