Veterinary Technology Students have excellent results on the 2012 State and National Board Exams!!!
Once again the Lone Star College-Tomball Veterinary Technology program students have excelled taking their State and National Board Exams. Congratulations to our new RVT's!
In Fall 2011, we moved into our 20,000 square foot new facility. The building will complement the existing Large Animal Facility in a rustic setting on the west side of the Tomball campus. The two story, building is designed to integrate standard veterinary technologies and practices while exploring new possibilities in veterinary science. It houses a l24 seat teaching lecture hall, twelve canine runs, reptile, avian and small mammal rooms, prep, surgery and teaching recovery rooms, administration rooms, a computer room and locker room facilities.
The Veterinary Technology program at LSCTomball began in 1988, and has grown to become one of the finest veterinary technology programs in the United States. The program has been recognized twice as an exemplary program by the State of Texas and its students have one of the highest success rates in passing the state and national board exams among the 185 accredited programs in the United States and Canada.
The program accepts 60 college entry-level students once a year each fall. Most courses are taught on campus with one LSC-Online course. The final semester is spent off-campus completing the required clinical (internship) at a veterinary clinic or hospital, a research hospital (MD Anderson or University of Texas), a specialty hospital (orthopedics, oncology, radiology, dermatology), or other approved clinical site.
Because the Veterinary Technology program is fully accredited by the AVMA, students are allowed to work in all areas of animal heath care. A student typically spends time in laboratories working with cows, dogs, cats, horses, pigs, sheep, goats, birds, exotic animals and traditional laboratory animals like mice and rats. As a result of the outstanding reputation of LSC-Tomballís Veterinary Technology program graduates, our students typically have 8-10 jobs available in the immediate Harris County area.
Both the Veterinary Technology Certificate (C1_VET1) and the Associate of Applied Science degree, Tech Prep (AAS_VETT) are offered.
