Veterinary Technology Program


Veterinary Technicians are essential members of the veterinary health care team. A Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) will support and augment veterinary medical care in many fields involving animals including private veterinary practice, biomedical research, herd health management, teaching, zoological parks and government services.

Under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian, RVTs may perform a diversity of skills to include: intensive nursing care, clinical laboratory procedures, radiology, anesthesiology, dental care, and surgical assistance. A graduate will have an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of animal husbandry behavior and nursing care for a variety of species.

The Veterinary Technology Program is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). The Oklahoma Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners (OSBVME) is the licensing body for Oklahoma.
