A new Career and Technical Education (CTE) program is being offered at the Mission Consolidated Independent School District (CISD).

The Veterinary Science program is geared to students that are interested in a career in veterinary science and be certified to work in places such as a clinic, zoos, per shelters or open their own business.

“My interest in this field goes all the way back to when I was a six-year-old and I discovered my love for animals,” said Micaela Flores, a Veterans Memorial High School student enrolled in the program, in the release. “I have been around animals almost all my life so my wish is to become a surgeon for them and set up my own practice between Cotulla and San Antonio.”

According to the release, students are required to complete 200 hands-on training hours in the classroom and another 300 hand-on training outside of the classroom before their high school graduation.

Students will take the Texas Veterinary Medical Association exam to receive their certification.
