VETERINARY CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

Pieper Memorial Veterinary Center has partnered with Middlesex Community College in developing a Veterinary Assistant Certificate Program. The program is designed to introduce individuals to veterinary practice and to teach them the skills and knowledge to gain an entry level job in a veterinary hospital. The program consists of classroom hours at the college and hands on clinics in the Pieper Memorial Veterinary Center and at area farms. Plans for a fully credited Associates Degree program in Veterinary Technology are underway at Middlesex Community College and hope to be completed soon. Currently students interested in veterinary technology can complete prerequisite requirements at Middlesex Community College before transferring to Northwestern Connecticut Community College to complete the degree program.
