Veterinary Specialty Hospital by Ethos Veterinary Health is a large, state of the art 24-hour Specialty and Emergency Hospital located in sunny San Diego just minutes from the beach! Our hospital is proud to be an accredited member of AAHA as well as a VECCS Level I Emergency & Critical Care facility. We are dedicated to our clients and community, the veterinary profession, and our team. We currently have full time openings for our Veterinary Assistant program.
This is a temporary 6 month paid training program that provides an introduction to the veterinary field and does not require any previous veterinary hospital or animal experience. The Veterinary Assistant will complete a formal program with a blended curriculum of online and hands-on training that is designed to prepare the Veterinary Assistant to sit for a national exam administered by the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA). Upon successful completion of this exam you will receive the credential of Approved Veterinary Assistant (AVA).
The primary responsibility of the Veterinary Assistant is to provide support and assistance to the veterinary medical staff. The Veterinary Assistant must embody the culture of treating every client and colleague with the utmost courteous and attentive treatment possible, with a keen sensitivity to the emotional bond between owners and their pets.
