Colina Veterinary Hospital is located in East San Diego County. Established sine 1967 we are a 2 Full time Veterinarians, 1 registered RVT, 3 Vet Assistants and 3 receptionists/ support staff.

The goal of our Externship Program is to offer a true hands on experience of what is like to work in a small animal/exotic Veterinary practice in one of the most diversified urban areas of the country.

We expect our veterinary students to combine their classroom knowledge with real life emergencies, clinical cases, routine surgeries and more complex procedures. We encourage students to participate in biweekly rounds.

Our externship should be a minimum of four to eight week duration and can accommodate 2 students maximum at a time. Hours are from Monday to Saturday 8:00 am to 7:30 pm, off Sundays.

At the present time we cannot offer boarding facilities.

Please send resumes and letter of intent to Dr. Guajardo at
