Veterinary Staff Shortages! Lets Fix it!

It is well known that the lack of qualified veterinary staff is a persistent national trend. This professional “crisis” for our area hospitals is compounded by the lack of adequate career training programs in the greater New Haven area. There lacks even an entry level training program that could attract and prepare individuals to assume positions as support staff in hospitals. Until now!

Central Institute for Veterinary Learning was created with the goal of supporting our local veterinary community, and to aid in solving the increasingly prevalent issue of staffing shortages across our state. Our first endeavor is the Veterinary Assistant Certificate Program. The program consists of two semesters with a total of 150 lecture hours and a 100-hour externship. Classes are held two days a week during the semester with both day and evening class schedules available. Students will gain the knowledge and hands on experience to enter the veterinary field as well trained individuals!

Why choose us?

Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine is deeply rooted in the Connecticut veterinary community, with a long history of providing support and resources to veterinarians and their support staff throughout the state. Our educational staff is qualified, experienced and caring, with a strong focus on helping each student succeed. We are dedicated to providing them with the skills they will need to be a part of a profession with a high potential for growth. After completion of our program students can enter the job market sucessfully benefiting from a learning program that includes a individualized focused classroom experience, hands on training and a program facilitated externship.
