The Veterinary Technology department at New England Institute of Technology will be holding its Veterinary Technology career fair on September 11, 2013.
The AVMA is one of the premier veterinary conferences in the country, with a yearly conference being held for members each summer.
The topics that Amy spoke on were Canine and Feline CPR and First aid, Helping Clients Develop an Emergency Plan for their Pets, Field Assessment for the Pet Emergency, and two wet labs on CPR certification.
Speaking about her experience, Amy said, “It was an amazing experience as I was able to network with many other veterinarians and technicians from around the country as well as learn some of the most current medical practices in my field allowing me to update some of the information I am presenting to my students in class. I greatly appreciated the opportunity to attend.”
Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) announced that the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), headquartered in Schaumburg, Illinois, has awarded provisional accreditation to the college’s Associate in Science degree program in Veterinary Technology.
New England Tech has earned the distinction of being the only college in Rhode Island offering an accredited Veterinary Technology program.
New England Institute of Technology was among 10 new programs granted accreditation, bringing the total accredited programs nationwide to 218.
According to Sherman, “Earning and maintaining our AVMA accreditation status is important to the students, to the faculty and to the college. Our Veterinary Technology Department Chair, Associate Professor Darlene Jones DVM, along with the faculty and staff, have done an exceptional job in attaining this important accreditation for our Veterinary Technology program.”
Dr. Thomas F. Wylie, Provost and Senior Vice President at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT), announced that the college has received a Grant for approximately $109,000 from the Champlin Foundations.

The Grant will be used to purchase laboratory equipment for NEIT’s Associate in Science degree program in Veterinary Technology. This program is the first certified Veterinary Technology program in Rhode Island developed by NEIT Department Chair and Associate Professor, Dr. Darlene Jones.
“This Grant will allow New England Tech to further enhance our high-tech Veterinary Technology laboratory giving our students the opportunity to learn required skills utilizing state-of-the-art equipment typically used in this field,” stated Wylie. “We are very grateful to the Champlin Foundations for their continued generosity in supporting New England Tech’s mission of providing our students with a quality technical education.”
