The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is currently seeking applicants for a new two-year internship program for graduate veterinary students. The Pittsburgh Zoo is one of only six facilities in the country to have both zoological and aquatic collections at the same institution. The collection consists of over 7,800 animals representing approximately 550 species. Veterinary staff also provide medical care for elephants at the International Conservation Center in Somerset County, PA. The full-time staff of the Animal Health Department consists of two veterinarians, three licensed veterinary technicians, one administrative assistant and a part-time hospital assistant. Our team works out of a recently built 13,000 square foot hospital with a full complement of diagnostic imaging modalities such as digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy equipment, and an in-house laboratory for clinical pathology.
