Pima Medical Institute has officially launched the Veterinary Technician associate degree program at our San Marcos campus. For more than 45 years, we have been dedicated to providing students with the in-demand, hands-on education employers expect. Opened in 2017, our San Marcos campus is the newest location serving the San Diego and surrounding community.
Veterinary technicians are animal nurses. They are passionate about animal care and are dedicated healthcare professionals who nurture the health and well-being of animals through specialized knowledge of animal behavior and care, surgical assisting, laboratory testing and nursing procedures. It’s a rewarding career for an animal lover.
“Thanks to our hands-on learning and real-world lab classrooms, our veterinary technician students will leave this program qualified to work closely with veterinarians in everything from surgery to lab procedures and more,” said Pima Medical Institute San Marcos Campus Director, DeWayne Johnson. “Upon graduation, our students will find diverse employment opportunities. While some might choose a clinic or veterinary office setting, others might find work in an animal park, or even a zoo treating domestic and exotic animals.”
Enrollment is already underway for this program. Those interested in applying are encouraged to tour the campus and meet the instructors by calling 1-888-442-5998. For more information about the program check out our Veterinary Technician program page.
