Begin your path to a veterinary career

The Blinn College District Veterinary Technology Program is a two-year, competitive-entry program designed to prepare students to become fully credentialed licensed veterinary technicians (LVTs). Through a collaborative partnership with the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, students in the Veterinary Technology Program receive hands-on training in every aspect of the wide-ranging animal health field.

Blinn is the only community college that has an agreement in place with Texas A&M University to complete laboratories and clinicals at its Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, and Blinn's first-time national board examination pass rate ranks No. 1 in the State of Texas.
