Veterinary Medical Technology New Construction & Renovation

The most recent accreditation report by the AVMA Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities cited the laboratory/animal holding facility (built in 1978) as requiring improvement.

The program has about 445 applicants a year, with only 64 able to be accepted because of facility limitations. Many remain out of the workforce while they wait for acceptance. The expected job growth is "much faster than all other occupations: 52% between 2010 and 2020." (Bureau of Labor Statistics).
