ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM

Information for Prospective Students Introduction

As you plan to start your college life, you are naturally concerned with what the future may hold for you. You, your parents, counselors, and others have probably spent some time discussing the costs involved in pursuing a college education, the program of study you might take and, most importantly, your hopes and plans after you receive your training. Making plans and decisions along these lines should include a consideration of all factors. This booklet has been designed to help answer common questions you may have about the Veterinary Technician program at Madison Area Technical College. Please let us know if there is any other information we can provide. We urge you to read all of this brochure before you apply for the Veterinary Technician program. This will be helpful to you after you are accepted as a student. It is also suggested that, if possible, you visit with a veterinary technician in your home area. ********** 1. QUESTION: WHAT IS VETERINARY TECHNICIAN TRAINING?

The Veterinary Technician Program at Madison Area Technical College is a two-year associate degree program in applied science conducted under the direction of licensed veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians as well as instructors in the General Studies areas. It emphasizes hands-on animal skills and the technical information necessary to perform certain duties under the supervision of a veterinarian. The courses were developed to follow the guidelines of the American and Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Associations. This program is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). At the end of two semesters of training, students are required to spend the summer interning under the supervision of a Wisconsin veterinarian for 320 or more hours in a period of eight or more weeks. This program was developed and is advised in cooperation with a committee of the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association. It has been approved by the Wisconsin Board of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education as an associate degree program. Veterinary medicine needs well-trained personnel who are as capable as nurses and other technicians in human medicine. Well-trained veterinary technicians can function in a great number of areas in today's active veterinary practices including the laboratory and intensive care. Responsibilities include administration and maintenance of anesthesia, use of monitoring equipment (ECG, pulse oximeter, blood pressure, etc.), administration of fluids, surgical assistance, post-operative observation, post-operative splints and bandages, radiology, performing laboratory test procedures and in-hospital treatment. Technicians also function in the reception and examination rooms taking histories, filling out records, explaining medication usage and instructing the owner about follow-up examinations and treatment. The list of duties could go on and will grow longer as the technician becomes more experienced.

QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS TRAINING? The objectives of the Veterinary Technician program are: 1. Develop skills in restraint of animals for examination and treatment, radiography and operating room techniques, reception and record keeping, medication, feeding and maintaining proper sanitation. Develop proficiency in performing laboratory tests related to the diagnosis and proper care of animals. Develop ability of effective communication and its application to proper public relations. Develop a proficiency and skill level that enables a graduate to become certified ("licensed") under Wisconsin law.

2. 3. 4.

The purpose of this training is not to prepare individuals as veterinarians or to train them to service their own animals. If an individual aspires to be a "Certified Veterinary Technician" instead of someone who may work with animals without specific skills, it is absolutely necessary that he/she develop certain traits and abilities to make it so. These goals are the primary objectives of this program. 3. QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE DUTIES OF A VETERINARY TECHNICIAN?

Individuals with this type of specialized training assist veterinarians to prepare animals for diagnosis and care for those under treatment for disease or injury. Precise laboratory tests used in diagnosis and proper care of animals are routine tasks. Typical duties include animal restraint, sterilizing surgical instruments and equipment using germicides and an autoclave, administering anesthetics, giving medications and performing prescribed nursing care under the direction of a veterinarian, assisting with radiology, grooming, preparing animals for and assisting in surgery, and assisting in the office receiving clients, answering the telephone, making appointments, keeping inventories, and accepting payment on client accounts. 4. QUESTION: IS THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN CAREER FIELD FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN?

Both men and women with specialized training are in demand for the rapidly growing veterinary technician career field. In the beginning, most students in this program were women. However, more and more men are now enrolling. Veterinarians, producers of laboratory animals, research institutions, medical centers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and others need specially trained people to care for animals and to perform laboratory and clerical tasks. Students graduating in this curriculum can generally expect rapid advancement. Jobs are found in large animal, small animal, or mixed animal practices, research facilities, animal shelters and zoos. This new branch of animal science can provide you with an interesting, rewarding, and challenging career.

QUESTION:

ARE VETERINARY TECHNICIANS "LICENSED?" Under Wisconsin law, veterinary technicians working for veterinarians are "Certified". This involves passing an examination administered by the Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing Veterinary Examining Board. There is a fee involved to take this examination. Most other states utilize similar procedures. Almost all graduates of Madison Area Technical College can and have met the qualifications of Wisconsin and other states. See Appendix A: Certification for Veterinary Technicians on page 24. WHAT ARE THE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS?

6.

QUESTION:

Mandatory entrance requirements include the following: 1. High school graduation or equivalency (GED or HSED) 2. Official high school and/or GED/HSED transcripts; if applicable, official post-secondary transcripts High School courses required: · Algebra - two semesters, each with a grade of [email protected] or better · Biology - two semesters, each with a grade of [email protected] or better Biology must be with a laboratory, designed for students who will go into a science field. · Chemistry - two semesters, each with a grade of [email protected] or better. Chemistry must be math based with a laboratory, designed for students who will go into a science field. We will not accept the following high school chemistry classes: Chem Com, Chemistry in the Community, or Conceptual Chemistry. If you have questions about your chemistry class, please call 608/246-6232.

3.

Two semesters of each of these three courses at the high school level is required to be completed or in progress if you are a high school senior. If not completed in high school and/or reflective on your high school transcripts, these must be completed post-secondary. 4. 5. 6. Reading ability - preferably at or near 12th grade level 2.0 cumulative GPA in high school studies Assessment needed: ACT or COMPASS assessment. Assessment scores must be within the last two years (see page 14 for desired test scores). COMPASS assessment will be required in the review process for all incoming students who are not transferring college level credits for math and English taken within the last two years. Significant animal oriented work experience is highly recommended and may lead to a more successful student.

7.

High school or post-secondary courses recommended (not required) which may be helpful to program success are: accounting, agriculture, geometry and bookkeeping. Applicants without the required high school algebra, biology or chemistry will be required to complete courses prior to taking occupational program courses.

-3-

Experience in working with animals can be very helpful in this program, but even more important is the science and mathematical ability to do laboratory work, radiology and other such tasks. We like to see a student have some real animal experience and background so he/she is sure of mastering the working conditions of this career. It takes more than a "lover of animals" to be a good veterinary technician. Experience with, interest in, and capacity for working with the type of small and large animals serviced by a veterinarian are very important. Good physical and emotional health is necessary. Physically you should be able to lift at least fifty pounds. Certain allergies, poor vision or hearing that isn't corrected, or being color blind can hamper a student in this career. Desirable personal traits to work with the public in periods of stress and emergencies as well as in general clinic relationships are also desired. Veterinary technicians are expected to be dedicated and willing to stay at one job location for a number of years. The guidelines used for admission into the Veterinary Technician program include two semesters of high school, or one semester of college, introductory courses with grades of "C" or better in algebra, biology, and chemistry. Please note: The biology course should contain student participation in a laboratory and be designed for students who will go into a science field. The chemistry course should be math based with a laboratory and designed for students who will go into a science field. Other courses in geometry and science should be at a similar level. Reasonable typing ability is recommended (but not required), computer courses and at least one course in general bookkeeping can be very helpful. Individuals interested in this program may contact the office of the Center for Agriscience and Technologies at Madison Area Technical College for application information. Written recommendations from a veterinarian are also desirable but are not required. In addition, applicants having previous part-time or full-time work experience shows that an applicant understands the world of work. There have been times when enough persons with complete credentials (completed application, official high school transcript, list of senior subjects if still in high school, test scores, and official college transcripts for courses completed if applicable) apply on the first day of admissions (3rd Monday of November for following fall term) to fill the program. If so, the qualified students are finally accepted by means of a witnessed random selection (lottery). When the number of spaces in the Veterinary Technician program has been matched to the ones drawn in the lottery, the remaining names drawn will be placed on a waiting list according to the order in which they are drawn if other conditions were met. This group is utilized to fill any vacancies which occur by the time classes start in the fall. Persons remaining on the waiting list when each fall term starts are notified and the waiting list is carried over to the next successive year. The lottery is not used unless the number of qualified first-day applicants exceeds spots available. Students are not accepted to start in the second (spring) semester, except when courses equivalent to core classes (091 numbered courses) have been completed at another college accredited by the AVMA.

QUESTION:

HOW MUCH ARE STUDENT EXPENSES AT MADISON AREA TECHNICAL COLLEGE?

These rates vary from year to year as they are based on current instructional costs. For the 2007-2008 school year, these expenses are approximately $130/credit for lab classes and $98/credit for lecture classes at associate degree level. These fees are set by the legislature and change yearly. Student activities and parking fees are also charged. A higher semester credit fee is charged for college transfer general education courses a student may choose to take. Advance Reservation Fee . . . An advance reservation fee of $50.00 is due within fifteen days after notification of acceptance in program or on wait list. The receipt of this fee is the student's assurance of a place in the Veterinary Technician program. This fee will apply towards the regular fees at the time of registration. It is important to pay this fee promptly within the fifteen days as requested to be assured of a place in the program. Non-payment will cause the person's application to be cancelled. Room and Board . . . Expenses for room and board, of course, vary according to each individual. MATC does not provide housing facilities. Most students locate their housing at the time of registration in summer. A college cafeteria offers wellbalanced and complete meals to students. City bus service is available to the school. Visit the MATC Website: www.matcmadison.edu and at the homepage go to the [email protected] index, search under B for bus information, H for housing, etc. to find helpful information. Books, school supplies, and fees . . . Students that are now enrolled find that books, personal school supplies, and fees are necessary. It is recommended to budget approximately $700 per semester for these additional costs. Of these items, books are generally the most expensive item. Our college bookstore sells the necessary textbooks and school supplies to students. Most textbooks can be ordered online and either delivered to your home or reserved and picked-up at Truax near the beginning of the semester.

8.

QUESTION: IS FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE? As in the University of Wisconsin system and at other Vocational Technical Adult Education (VTAE) districts, financial aid is available for those who need it. Financial aid is designed to supplement the resources of the student and family. The family is expected to pay as much as it can realistically handle; financial aid--grants, loans, work study--then make up the balance. Simply stated, a grant is financial aid that is not repaid by the student. A loan is temporary assistance (up to ten years) that must be repaid. Work-study funds are earned through jobs which most often tie in with the student's classroom study. To be considered for financial assistance, a student must apply. MATC students may begin the Financial Aid process online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov as soon as their current tax returns are complete.

-5-

The Financial Aid Office offers federal and state grants, employment opportunities, scholarships and loan programs to assist students who would otherwise be unable to afford an education. For help with filling out the FAFSA, call (608) 246-6170 to register for a FAFSA Workshop (Monday afternoons / Thursday mornings). Visit our MATC Website at www.matcmadison.edu, go to the homepage, then to the [email protected] index, to F, search for Financial Aid and you will fine other valuable financial aid information. Before you will be sent a financial aid award announcement, you must have been accepted for enrollment in an approved post-secondary program. To determine the extent of a student's financial need, the financial aid officer takes into account the financial support which may be expected from the income, assets, and other resources of the student, the student's parents and, if applicable, the student's spouse. The amount of need is determined by subtracting the contributions available from the student's total cost of attending school. The difference between these resources and the school costs, which are based upon average student costs, constitutes the student's financial need. It is the philosophy of Madison Area Technical College that deserving students should not be denied the opportunity to attend our college because of financial need as long as funds are available to help them. 9.

QUESTION: WILL MATC HELP ME TO LOCATE A POSITION AS A VETERINARY TECHNICIAN WHEN I FINISH MY TWO YEARS OF TRAINING?

Personnel at Madison Area Technical College cannot promise anyone a job, but it is the college policy to assist each graduate in finding suitable and profitable employment if such help is requested. While there is no guarantee of job placement, the student who acquires adequate training and develops the necessary initiative can be more readily assisted in locating employment commensurate with his/her training. You will be given the opportunity to be interviewed by a number of individuals in geographic areas and positions where you might like to be employed. In recent years MATC's Placement Office has received job listings that outnumber the graduates by a 3-4 to 1 ratio. You, of course, will make the final decision of where you would like to work, but not all students can be placed in their home areas or in the Madison area. The Fox River Valley, greater Milwaukee, and LaCrosse-Eau Claire areas have had the best record of placement. Surveys that have been conducted indicate that there will be more than ample employment opportunities. Placement in recent years has been at or near 100%. In addition to veterinarians, small animal laboratories, medical labs, research institutions, pharmaceutical manufacturers, animal shelters and zoos are interested in individuals with veterinary technician training. Because economic conditions change from year to year, it is hard to estimate what the salary situation will be when you graduate. It is safe to say, however, that payment for your services as a veterinary technician should be at least average for two years of training and, of course, will be dependent upon your ability and ambitions. It is expected that most graduates will advance rapidly in this career field.

QUESTION:

CAN I TRANSFER CREDITS FROM THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM TOWARDS A DEGREE AS A DOCTOR OF VETERINARY MEDICINE?

This isn't the primary objective of veterinary technician training, but if you plan to continue your education beyond our two-year Veterinary Technician program, some of the credits could be transferable. It is recommended you take college transfer level general education courses (science, English, mathematics) instead of the associate degree general education level courses the Veterinary Technician students take (which are not always transferable.) There is an additional cost to the student for each college transfer semester credit and, of course, acceptance of such credits is dependent upon the school to which you wish the credits transferred. Also, some four-year institutions accept some associate degree general education courses. Check with the school that you intend to enroll in to see which courses are transferable. If you plan to take college transferable credits in lieu of those required in the curriculum, steps to do this should be completed at or prior to the time you register after being accepted. 11. QUESTION: WHAT ABOUT SUMMER INTERNSHIP--WHERE WILL IT BE HELD--DO I GET PAID?

Summer internship "work experience" is a required four-credit course. It is considered to be an essential phase of the two-year Veterinary Technician associate degree program. It follows the second semester of class work (and for a few, during the school year) and is conducted during a period of eight or more weeks (or 320 hours), in the college summer between the first and second years. This will allow you approximately three to four weeks of vacation time during the summer in addition to your internship. Placement for this training will be with a cooperating veterinarian who is licensed to practice in Wisconsin and your work will be supervised by the MATC instructors who teach the Veterinary Technician classes. Placement for internship is the responsibility of the student during his/her first two semesters of training and he/she should be aware that not all such positions can be found in his/her home area or in the Madison area. Students are given instruction concerning applying for Internship in an Occupational Preparation course and then are given an independent role in their own placement. It is recommended that you be paid for Internship, but it isn't required. When wages are paid, they will be less than after you have completed your two years of training and should not be a major consideration because of the type of training help you will receive from the cooperating veterinarian. 12. QUESTION: CAN I HOLD A PART-TIME JOB WHILE ATTENDING MATC?

Most students hold part-time employment while attending school. A job referral service is available. Whether or not you hold a part-time job should at least be partially dependent on your scholastic ability and how well you do in your college courses. About 90 percent of MATC students have some part-time employment while attending school. However, working too many hours at outside employment has been demonstrated to seriously impair student success in the Veterinary Technician Program.

13.

QUESTION:

IS ADEQUATE HOUSING AVAILABLE?

A good supply of housing is available in Madison. Nevertheless, students are advised to make housing arrangements in early summer after they are accepted (late June to mid-July is a good time). Madison Area Technical College does not provide housing for students. A few veterinary clinic live-in situations are sometimes available. Visit the MATC website www.matcmadison.edu, go to the homepage, to the [email protected] index, H for housing, for AA Guide to Finding Housing in [email protected] 14. QUESTION: CAN I LIVE AT HOME AND/OR COMMUTE TO SCHOOL?

A recent survey indicates that approximately 37 percent of the students enrolled in the post-secondary curriculum at MATC are residents of the Madison area and live at home. It was also found that 42.2 percent look to the private sector for housing in the Madison area. The remainder, 20.8 percent, commute daily from homes outside the Madison area. 15. QUESTION: ARE UNIFORMS REQUIRED FOR THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN TRAINING PROGRAM?

The type of jacket smock garments worn by veterinary technicians in veterinary clinics is required in laboratory classes starting with the first semester in the first year of training. Students' dress and appearance at all times will be expected to be as when they become employed as veterinary technicians. Smocks are purchased by the students early in the first semester and are of a style and type prescribed by the college. Students are also required to wear coveralls, surgical scrubs, boots, name badges and safety glasses in later courses. 16. QUESTION: HOW CAN I APPLY FOR THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM?

Effective July 1, 2007, paper applications will not be available. You are required to fill out an MATC application online. Applications can be found at our MATC website: www.matcmadison.edu. At the time of submission of your on-line application you will be charged a $5.00 access fee plus the $30.00 application fee. In addition, you are required to submit by postal mail: 1) 2) Official high school transcripts and/or GED/HSED transcripts; if applicable, official post-secondary transcripts. ACT or COMPASS assessment. Please see page 3 of this manual for details of the assessment Admissions requirements. The COMPASS assessment can be taken at MATC or a technical college near you.

Completed applications will be considered for processing as of the third Monday in November for the following fall semester. All of the above items need to be received by the third Monday in November to be considered a complete A1st Day [email protected] The Veterinary Technician Program frequently fills with 1st day

-8-

applicants. The earliest date applications may be submitted online is 120 days prior to the third Monday in November. If an application is received more than 120 days prior to the first processing date for the term you are applying for, the application and credentials may be returned to you. Your application will not be considered [email protected] and ready for review until all the documents are received by the Enrollment Center. For the best consideration, we highly recommend that you have your application submitted (online) AND we have received all your accompanying documentation on or before the third Monday in November. Important: MATC retains transcripts from other schools/colleges for a period of two years. If you applied previously your transcripts may be on file. However, if your previous application was submitted while you were a high school senior, be sure that you now send a complete four-year high school transcript. If you applied previously and were in the process of taking post secondary courses your are now required to submit up-to-date transcripts. Your application will not be considered complete without the up-to-date transcripts. When the Veterinary Technician program is filled, a waiting list is maintained which carries over into the following school year. Experience has shown that a substantial number of students who make application and are accepted do not appear for registration or classes. 17. QUESTION: CAN I BE ADMITTED TO THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM FOR THE SECOND SEMESTER OF A GIVEN YEAR?

We do not admit students to start in the second semester. 18. QUESTION: CAN I BE ACCEPTED FOR THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM IF I DON'T LIVE IN WISCONSIN?

Although the program has been designed with Wisconsin residents in mind, out-of-state persons may be admitted if space permits. Out-of-state applications are not reviewed until a certain amount of time has elapsed for acceptance of instate applicants. 19 QUESTION: CAN I TRANSFER CREDITS FROM OTHER INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING? WHAT ABOUT OTHER TRAINING OR EXPERIENCE TO RECEIVE CREDIT?

Students transferring from other institutions of higher learning may have their records evaluated by the Program Director or Academic Advisor of the Center for Agriscience and Technologies and may receive permission to waive certain requirements provided the courses being transferred are equivalent in material content, credit value, and science courses laboratory hours. It is also necessary that you receive a grade of "C" or above in these courses to be transferred. Because of certain prerequisites in the Veterinary Technician program, this will generally not reduce the two years for the training but will lower your credit load while you are here. Courses which you could take at any accredited university

-9-

and which would transfer to the Veterinary Technician program would include the following: English Composition I, Animal Biology or Zoology, Chemistry (the course must include inorganic, organic and biochemistry), College Algebra, Introduction to Sociology, Introduction to Psychology and Speech or Scientific Writing. Other courses may be helpful but generally would not be transferable to the program. In addition to transferring application credits from other institutions of higher learning, a student may be granted other credit toward the Veterinary Tech. associate degree by making application to the Academic Advisor. Such credit may be given for previous work experience, previous military education or experience, and advanced high school courses comparable in content and level (if an articulation agreement exists). At the discretion of the Academic Advisor, the evaluation of such credit shall be oral, written, performance testing, or by a combination of these. Acknowledging that learning may take place anywhere, MATC awards credit for experiential learning that contributes directly to an associate degree program. Experiential learning refers especially to learning that occurs outside the classroom, in work settings, communities, or self directed accomplishments. It emphasizes performance over concept. 20. QUESTION: WHAT HIGH SCHOOL COURSES ARE HELPFUL TO VETERINARY TECHNICIAN TRAINING?

Average or better grades for classes in college preparatory algebra, biology and chemistry are very important and are REQUIRED. Applicants without algebra, biology or chemistry must take these courses prior to being accepted into the program. Other desirable courses include first aid, speech, bookkeeping, physics, office practices, typing, computers, and vocational agriculture. No one would be expected to have all of these. Students are considered for the Veterinary Technician program on the merits of their total high school and/or college transcripts and ACT or other comparable test scores. 21. QUESTION: IS ANIMAL EXPERIENCE NECESSARY?

Previous work experience with animals can be very beneficial. Experience on a farm, working with a veterinarian, or other animal jobs will be helpful in attaining the skills and knowledge necessary for this career. It takes more than an "animal lover" to be a good technician. 22. QUESTION: WHO TEACHES THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN CLASSES?

All courses that are directly related to the Veterinary Tech. program are taught by licensed veterinarians and by certified veterinary technicians who have worked in veterinary practices with both large and small animals. Other courses in science, mathematics, communication skills, etc., are taught by the general education and business faculty. Outside of the college, internships provide additional clinical experience.

23.

QUESTION:

AFTER APPLYING, HOW SOON WILL I KNOW IF I HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM?

Official acceptance or denial notices are sent by the college Enrollment Center to program applicants as soon as they can be processed. This may require several months after all of your credentials have been received. Application processing is expedited by submitting all required application materials together. Generally, we attempt to send acceptance letters by the end of March. Evaluation of a student for the program can be made at any time by the Academic Advisor of the Center for Agriscience and Technologies . Such an evaluation, however, is not necessarily an assurance of being accepted into the program since all information (transcripts, test scores, etc.) must be reviewed before a final decision is made. 24. QUESTION: ARE THERE ANY OTHER SCHOOLS OFFERING VETERINARY TECHNICIAN TRAINING?

MATC is the only post-secondary institution in Wisconsin offering accredited veterinary technician on-site training. There are some out-of-state programs but we do not generally have information about them or make recommendations for out-of-state schools. If you select another school, be sure it is accredited by the AVMA. 25. QUESTION: CAN I TAKE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN TRAINING BY CORRESPONDENCE OR ON A PART-TIME BASIS?

Veterinary Technician core classes requiring [email protected] technical skills are only offered on-site at this time. Some lecture only based courses are offered online as well as on-site. General Education courses may be taken on-site, over instructional television, or online. Veterinary Technician classes are filled by the 64 students enrolled each year. Students may complete the program on a parttime basis after they have completed the first semester. Because of the limited number of spots available for the first semester of the program, students must be concurrently enrolled in all of the following: 10-091-105 Occupational Prep, 10-091-123 Laboratory Animal Science 1, 10-091-170 Veterinary Medical Terminology, 10-091-171 Animal Care & Management 1, and 10-806-105 Animal Biology (unless these classes are completed elsewhere prior to the student=s first semester in the program). 26. QUESTION: WHEN ARE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN COURSES GENERALLY SCHEDULED?

The MATC college day class schedule is conducted from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, classes for this program have been grouped as much as possible to generally meet from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Several "free periods" follow classes in this schedule within a given week allowing students time for lunch, studying, and free time.

QUESTION:

IS THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM AT MADISON AREA TECHNICAL COLLEGE ACCREDITED?

The Veterinary Technician program at Madison Area Technical College has been accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association after a study of curriculum, facilities, and equipment which involve an on-site visitation by three veterinarians. This accreditation is reviewed on a yearly basis by the AVMA to be certain minimal standards are maintained. MATC is accredited as a college by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The Wisconsin Board of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education has accredited the technical associate degree programs. The coordinating Committee for Higher Education and the Wisconsin Board of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education approved the liberal arts curricula, therefore the college is authorized to offer collegiate transfer courses. The University of Wisconsin and other four-year institutions accept the college transfer programs for credit. MATC has full institutional membership in the American Association of Junior Colleges, and is recognized by the American Council on Education as an institutional affiliate. MATC is a member of the Council of North Central Junior Colleges, and is recognized by the American Council on Education as an institutional affiliate. MATC is a member of the Council of North Central Junior Colleges and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. 28. QUESTION: WHAT COURSES WILL YOU TAKE?

There are four semesters of study and training in the program--two each year. In addition, a summer internship follows the second semester. Required courses in the Veterinary Technician program are shown on page 16. Since the Veterinary Technician course of study is constantly being evaluated by our staff and Advisory Committee, the curriculum is subject to minor changes as the need arises. Some of the courses are, or can be, college transferable. 29. QUESTION: ARE THERE RELATED COURSES THAT CAN BE TAKEN? Yes, the following courses are available to enhance employment and/or further degree opportunities: 20-804-201 10-806-127 10-806-129 10-091-113 10-091-114 10-091-117 10-091-118 10-091-129 10-091-136 Intermediate Algebra Chemistry I Chemistry II Animal Nutrition Animal Behavior Exotic Animal Husbandry Advanced Veterinary Surgical Nursing Clinical Rotation Vet Tech Laboratory Mathematics 3 credits 4 credits 4 credits 2 credits 2 credits 2 credits 2 credits 2 credits 1 credit

REQUIREMENTS FOR VETERINARY TECHNICIAN PROGRAM INTERNSHIP AT MADISON AREA TECHNICAL COLLEGE

Internship as a four-credit course (10-091-158) in the Veterinary Technician curriculum at Madison Area Technical College shall be performed under the following conditions: 1. Students must complete all first year courses in the Veterinary Technician program before enrolling in Internship. In the event that a student has not completed one or more courses or received a failing grade in one of them, a special individual consideration may be made by the Veterinary Technician program instructors and the program director of the Center for Agriscience and Technologies. Students must be present and participate in the one-day (8 hours total) pre-internship training period conducted by the veterinary instructors. This eight-hour training session is part of the Internship course (10-091-158) and students will be graded for their participation. These 8 hours are credited towards your internship hours. Pre-internship is usually conducted immediately following the second semester (spring) final examination period. Students failing to participate in this training will receive an incomplete grade for the Internship course and will not be allowed to intern until later. Students will be registered for the Internship course (10-091-158) with fees paid prior to the start of pre-internship orientation day. Registration will be done in a class group at a place and time designated by the program director of the Veterinary Technician program. Internship will be at an approved location in Wisconsin or a close location in a bordering state. Other locations may be approved under special conditions. The specific practice and type of practice must be approved. Approval will be made by the Veterinary Technician veterinary instructors and by the program director. Students are required to intern: a. In a mixed practice, OR b. 160 hours in small animal practice and 160 hours in mixed or large animal practice, OR c. 160 hours in laboratory animal facility, zoo, or specialty practice and remainder (160 hours) in a mixed animal practice. Internship duties must include those normally performed as a Veterinary Technician in a veterinary clinic. Performance only in such areas as a kennel or receptionist is not acceptable. In any practice or laboratory facility with no previous experience with MATC Veterinary Technician interns, one on-the-job visit will be made immediately near the start of internship plus the two regular visits at a later time in the training period. This is done to assure that the student intern will receive the proper on-the-job training.

A time span of 320 or more hours of internship are required during eight or more weeks. If 320 are completed prior to a span of eight weeks, the student must continue until eight weeks are completed. Some credit may be given for hours of experience prior to the internship period (work at a clinic during the school year, etc.) and this may reduce the required eight-week time span. Within reason, the student must keep us informed of their hours and telephone and address changes. The very high cost of mileage does not allow scheduling instructor visits to students to find that they are not on the job that day. The student intern must also agree to arrange for a veterinary-employer consultation at the time of the visit. Students will be informed of the dates for instructor visits by mail or telephone. All Internship reports and the Internship Workbook are due in the Center for Agriscience and Technologies office on a specific pre-scheduled basis regardless of when internship is started for the individual. Students will receive a calendar showing when each report is due. Adequate sized envelopes with proper postage should be used in sending reports. The cooperating veterinarian where you intern does not issue you a course grade although their evaluation of your performance is considered. Individual student grades are issued following an "exit conference" with the Veterinary Technician instructors in the fall semester following internship. Not participating in the exit conference may be cause for a failing grade. Grades for Internship other than "incomplete" will not be issued to any student until all internship requirements are met. This includes all reports, workbook, employer evaluation, and an exit conference. Arrangements for pay (if any) are between the student intern and the cooperating veterinarian. Students shall understand they are not employed but are interning to learn vital Veterinary Technician skills such as in any other course. It is the prerogative of the cooperating veterinarian(s) to pay you a sum for mileage, housing, etc., while you are interning. Advance standing for Internship is seldom granted because a student has not received training to gain from on-the-job skills. However, a maximum of 80 hours at an approved facility might be credited toward Internship. This would reduce Internship to a 240 hour requirement in a six-week period. (See Item #7.) To gain such credit, requests must be made in writing to the Veterinary Technician program director. Such requests must include place worked, time span, hours, and specific duties performed. The request must be signed by the employer(s) and the student. A written and/or oral test may be utilized to determine whether specific skills have been learned. Approval for these hours towards Internship will be made by the Veterinary Technician program director after the recommendation of the Veterinary Technician program instructors.
