Nationwide® supports veterinary students with programs designed to help develop tomorrow’s veterinarians ready themselves for entry into one of the most rewarding and challenging of professions. Here’s what we offer, both to schools and to individual students:

University series: veterinary career development

The Nationwide® Veterinary College Program was designed with Veterinary Business Management Association (VBMA) in mind. The goal is to provide future veterinarians with a better understanding of business and management principles that will help them succeed in veterinary practice.

Our team of field veterinarians is available to present educational lectures that help satisfy credits toward the VBMA Business Certificate Program to all 30 U.S.VBMA Chapters and three Caribbean (Ross, St. Matthews and St. Georges Universities) Chapters. Find out more.

Student externship program
Nationwide’s annual veterinary student externship offers a chance for individuals to learn fundamental business concepts and skills as well as specific information about pet insurance. The one-week rotation takes place at Nationwide pet insurance’s Southern California offices. The program offers a ways to add vital business experience to a resume. The participants are chosen from a national applicant pool. Find out more and apply.

For more information on any of these programs, e-mail students@petinsurance.com or call 866-838-4874 Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
