NARKOVET CONSULTING®  in partnership with ETHOS VETERINARY HEALTH/VETBLOOM and in collaboration with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine launches this fall a unique and, in North America first of its kind, advanced education program for veterinary technicians in small animal anesthesia, analgesia, and perioperative care.

The course program has been endorsed by the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia & Analgesia (ACVAA) and the Academy of Veterinary Technicians in Anesthesia & Analgesia (AVTAA), and is RACE-approved. It is directed towards licensed veterinary technicians with focused interest in small animal anesthesia, analgesia, and perioperative care and the desire to pursue in the future a career as veterinary technician specialist (VTS) in anesthesia & analgesia. The 4-module course combines traditional methods of lecturing and laboratory/workshop teaching with the new technology of on-demand e-learning. The course offers the opportunity to obtain a certificate in basic and advanced techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation from the American College of Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care. The AVTAA will designate a total of 90 continuing education (CE) credits upon successful completion of the program. For further information please visit the course website at:

ESAVS - The European School for Advanced Veterinary Studies

The multi-modal program presented by the European School for Advanced Veterinary Studies offers an advanced level of continuing education (CE) and training for any veterinary technician in the private or institutional setting.  The link and course is currently taught only in Europe and only in German.  (This program has been endorsed by the ACVAA)

The University of Florida Veterinary Technician Internship Program is a specialized internship for veterinary technicians wanting to focus in either Anesthesia or Emergency Medicine & Critical Care. The program is designed to offer the technician the opportunity to increase knowledge and gain experience in a specific discipline. We are accepting one intern for Anesthesia and one intern for Emergency Medicine & Critical Care. Candidates must be a graduate of an AVMA accredited Veterinary Technology program. Experienced technicians that are credentialed (certified, registered or licensed) will also be considered. Candidates are required to submit an application with a letter of interest, a resume, two letters of professional reference (DVM, Credentialed Veterinary Technician, or Practice Manager) and documentation of credentials. Application packets are available in the fall of each year with the internship selections being announced the following spring. Internships last for one year starting in the summer. There will be core rotations, as well as elective rotations. The veterinary technician interns will be scheduled on overnight rotations, as well as weekends and holidays. Rotations will last from 1-4 weeks.
