Miami Dade College (MDC) will receive $5,500 from Miami-Dade County Commissioner Senator Javier Souto for equipment for its Veterinary Technology program on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 2 p.m., at the Medical Campus. Sen. Souto is an MDC alumnus and will tour the campus' new Center for Learning, Innovation and Simulation following the check presentation.

Veterinary technicians typically conduct clinical work in private practice under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. As a veterinary technician, they help a veterinarian care for animals in a variety of settings, including clinics, zoos, research centers, and more.

A graduate of MDC's Veterinary Technology program is eligible to sit for the Veterinary Technician National Exam and become a Certified Veterinary Technician. Upon graduation, the graduate will be able to perform a wide array of medical tests and procedures in several clinical settings from small animal, large animal, exotics and laboratory animals.
