Training For Avian Professionals

Eagle treatment

The Raptor Center offers externshipsinternships and residencies in avian medicine. These experiences offer a broad spectrum of activities related to gaining clinical experience.

The externship program is for senior veterinary students and veterinarians. Externs are responsible for assisting the interns, residents, and senior clinicians in the diagnosis and surgical/medical treatment of raptors and other birds admitted to the Center.

Interns manage cases under the supervision of faculty and assist with all aspects of clinical care of raptors, including captive management, capture and restraint, anesthesia, diagnostics, necropsy, record-keeping and research projects. We will post a link when the position is open.

Our classes and workshops are for professionals in both avian medicine and captive raptor care and management. 

The Raptor Center depends on public support for 60% of our annual budget.
