Aliante Animal Hospital’s externship program is open to any currently enrolled 3rd and 4th-year veterinary medical students.

Aliante Animal Hospital is a multi-doctor practice located in North Las Vegas, a small city that is part of the Las Vegas Metro Area. We provide high-quality, wellness veterinary care for dogs and cats with a focus on customer service.

On-site housing and a weekly stipend are part of our program in addition to professional mentoring and working in a busy, progressive hospital. Additional opportunities to work with specialists in soft tissue/orthopedic surgery, cardiology, oncology, and rehabilitation are available to those in the program.

In addition to the benefits of working at Aliante Animal Hospital, and living in the Las Vegas area, externs will have opportunities to explore Southern Nevada and take part in numerous activities outside of work, including hiking and camping at Red Rock National Park, the Mt. Charleston Ski area, and Lake Mead National Recreational Area. Students will also be able to walk along Las Vegas Boulevard to see The Strip, as well as Historic Downtown Las Vegas. Las Vegas is just a short drive away from popular attractions in California, Arizona, and Utah.

Aliante Animal Hospital opened in 2014 and is growing every day. Our location is the newest of our sister hospitals, Craig Road Animal Hospital and Lone Mountain Animal Hospital. Our hospital is equipped with digital radiology, digital dental radiology, ultrasound with color flow Doppler, an in-house laboratory, a surgical suite, dentistry, and a paperless medical records computer system. Aliante also features telemedicine capabilities, a full up to date library, and an excellent close working relationship with a large veterinary specialty center. With a dedicated and professional staff, Aliante Animal Hospital also provides an excellent and supportive working environment.
