High School Internship

The Milk Quality Laboratory High School Internship Program started in 1997.  The program is designed to expose high school seniors, who are interested in biomedical, agricultural, and animal science fields, to medical microbiology and applied animal health diagnostics.  Student interns work with diagnostic laboratory technicians and learn skills and laboratory techniques used in microbiology, food animal research and veterinary medicine.  The program exposes the students to a diverse range of activities and allows them to develop responsibility, maturity, and good work ethics.

In addition to working in the laboratory during the internship, students also have the opportunity to observe clinical veterinary services provided on-farm to local herds.
