Associate Veterinarian Job Description

An associate veterinarian works with an established veterinarian at a veterinary hospital.

Associates usually receive more on-the-job training than interns but less training than senior veterinarians.

Associate veterinarians perform many of the same duties as senior veterinarians.

Associates only gain full autonomy over patients under full supervision from senior veterinarians.

In some cases, an associate may assist senior veterinarians in surgery but may not perform surgery on their own.

Senior veterinarians may be responsible for supervising associate veterinarians, assigning duties, and making medical decisions.

Associate veterinarians typically work under the supervision of a senior veterinarian.
