Vet Tech info - Pennsylvania

Q: Dr. Mike, found your site(s) thru search engines and heaved a giant sigh of relief when I finally located you!!!! Am currently looking for info on vet tech courses in Pennsylvania and the only place which I have located at this point is Harcu Jr. College, in Media, Pa. If you have any other suggestions, I'd appreciate them. I'd also be interested in subscribing to the VetInfo Digest. I currently subscribe to DW-L (Doberman World List) and UDC-L (United Doberman Club List) which has only increased my interest in adding to my education. At this point, I am seriously considering education in the vet tech field and feel that my lifelong association and interest with dogs and horses could only be expanded with a career in this field. I'm not your typical, entry level student - good grief, I'm pushing 40! ; but this is the direction my life is headed and I feel it would be a good outlet for me. If you have any information related to vet techs in this are of the country, I'd appreciate receiving it! Thanks in advance. DeeW A: Dee- I think that people shouldn't be afraid to pursue new interests, including new careers, as they gain experience in life. I applaud your initiative!

Certification and Licensing of Vet Tech's

Q: Dr. Mike- I am considering a job at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island and my wife is interested in obtaining her RVT. On your web pages, you mentioned that there were only 5 "accredited" vet tech schools in NY. What do you mean by "accredited"? Our understanding was that an accredited school gives you an AA degree along with the ability to take the state licensing test. My wife already has a 4-year degree in zoology from UC Davis, and so is just interested in a preparatory program/further education for the test. In California, you are eligible to take the test if you have a higher degree and a certain number of work experience hours - is this also true in NY? Thank you,-Lynn and Val A: Lynn and Val- I have to admit that I am not familiar with the requirements in all states for certification or licensing of veterinary technicians. The best way to determine the licensing requirements for New York would be to write to the New York Association of Animal Health Technicians, 90 South Swan Street, Albany, NY, 12210 or to the Board for Veterinary Medicine, Cultural Education Center, Room 3043, Albany, NY, 12230 (phone 518-474-3867).
