image testimonial

During my externship with Pure Paws Hell's Kitchen, the hospital team was very welcoming, the doctors and technical staff were attentive and great teachers, and I was exposed to and learned so much about small animal general practice. I am thankful to VPP for the help and guidance that was offered to me before, during, and after my externship experience. I am looking forward to continuing to work with VPP and Pure Paws after graduation in order to become the best veterinarian I can be.

I love working for VPP because of how much our people care. But we don’t just care about the outcome or what we need to do for our work, we care about each other, each other’s success, and the people we serve.

I can confidently say that being an ambassador for VPP has changed my perspective on owning my own practice one day. Through attending externships at VPP co-owned hospitals, I have gained insight into how positive a clinical environment can be when the doctors and technicians are able to focus on their job, and their job only. I greatly appreciate all that VPP has done for me so far, and I cannot wait to continue promoting such a caring community of people who want to see a change in the veterinary world.

Professional Growth

We invest in our partners and associates through development opportunities that go beyond the lecture-based experience. Through our immersive, community-focused continuing education programs, veterinary practitioners gain the practical expertise they need to thrive in our ever-changing profession.

Student Opportunities

Shaping the future of veterinary medicine is the heart of our focus at VPP, and we strive to do that by developing and celebrating the next generation of clinical professionals. Our flexible externship program provides students with practical, off-campus educational experiences beyond the walls of the classroom and into the walls of the hospital.

We also provide guest lectures. If you’re interested in hearing from one of our doctors, let us know! We’d be happy to connect with you.
