O que eu aprenderei?


An Animal Health Technologist works under the supervision of veterinarians and veterinary scientists in a variety of areas including diagnostic testing, radiography, medical procedures, office protocol, animal nursing, anesthesia and surgical assistance.

The AHT distance program allows qualified individuals to obtain the theoretical portion of their training by distance education using a combination of electronic and hard copy technologies. The clinical, "hands on" experience that is vitally important to a competent Animal Health Technologist is provided at their place of work. The program is available to students anywhere in Canada.


Although most graduates are employed in private veterinary practices, positions may be obtained in the emerging biotechnical fields, animal shelters, zoological parks and other animal oriented areas in the public and private sectors.
