The Aquarium Medical Center (AMC) is the primary workspace for our Animal Health Department. It consists of a hospital ward for sick or injured animals, a surgical suite, radiography room, pharmacy, diagnostic lab, environmental quality lab, and necropsy facility. The Animal Health Department consists of veterinarians, a veterinary technician, marine biologists, a laboratory manager, and an environmental quality manager and technicians.
Responsibilities: Assist the AMC staff in all areas of animal care and medical treatments. As a volunteer you will assist with preventative medicine, medical treatments, quarantine, pathology, laboratory diagnostics, and data entry under the supervision of the technician or biologists. The intern will gain exposure to a wide variety of the aquarium collection including reptiles, amphibians, fish, and occasionally birds and marine mammals.
