The Harcum College Veterinary Technology Program is the longest-running and best known program in Eastern Pennsylvania.
Accredited by the AVMA since 1976, Harcum has produced thousands of graduates who make a daily impact on the lives of animals and their owners.
Harcum’s relationship with the University of Pennsylvania’s Veterinary Hospitals allows the students the unique opportunity to get their large animal clinical experience at Penn’s New Bolton Center in Kennett Square.
Students spend 12 weeks at New Bolton.
During this time they complete rotations in Nursing, Anesthesia, Sports Medicine and Field Service and spend time in all areas of the facility including the pharmacy, clinical lab, pathology lab and Marshak Dairy.
Upon graduation, many graduates of the program go on to accept positions as nurses at New Bolton Center.
“The fact that every one of our students gets to work side by side with the doctors and nurses at New Bolton Center sets Harcum’s program apart from the others when it comes to experience with horses. There is just nothing that can compare,” said Kathy Koar, M.S. Ed. CVT, Program Director, Veterinary Technology, Harcum College
