Neosho, MO – Crowder College Veterinary Tech students and staff celebrated National Veterinary Technician Week this week, October 11-17. This week has been set aside to celebrate, recognize, and promote the valuable contributions veterinary technicians make to the veterinary profession and society.
“National Vet Tech Week is an opportunity to highlight the hard work that our veterinary technician students and graduates do in the trenches each day. The many job titles they hold pale in the comparison to the care they give to the furry family members”, stated Shawna Estep, Veterinary Technology Program Director/Instructor.
Crowder College offers a 78-credit hour program to earn an Associate of Applied Science degree which is accredited through the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Registered Veterinary Technicians in Missouri must graduate from an AVMA accredited program, pass the Veterinary Technician National Exam, and the Missouri State exam.
The special admissions program has 20 openings annually for student acceptance with applications taken through April 15, for entry in fall 2021. The Veterinary Technology program received accreditation in November 2006.
