UF veterinary students gain shelter medicine skills through clerkship

Thanks to a collaboration between the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and Alachua County, students at the college have gained an opportunity for hands-on learning in the field of shelter medicine and the college has enhanced the offerings of its shelter program to better serve the local community.

College administrators approached the county in the spring of 2020 about the possibility of creating a student clerkship at the Animal Resources & Care, or ARC, shelter after the rotation that had been in operation for five years at Miami-Dade Animal Services was paused due to COVID-19.
