Del Norte Animal Clinic is a teaching facility associated with the pre-vet advisor, Bruce Hopkin Ph.D, at the University of New Mexico. We hire biology majors with competitive grade point averages who are interested in pursuing a career as a veterinarian. We provide a minimum of 80 hours of training under the supervision of a mentor and doctor in the area of professionalism and technical skills. Additional training is required to be certified to clean teeth under a doctor’s supervision, assist in surgery, and become proficient in performing receptionist skills. Since the beginning of this program, all employee who have decided to apply to vet school have been accepted. This program has branched out to a 2nd program that encourages and mentors employees who have completed the above training and are interested in furthering their knowledge base in veterinary medicine to receive a degree as a veterinary technician through AAHA. All employees are encouraged to move through a learning process that begins by being mentored and continues full circle when they have the skills necessary to mentor new employees.

We also have an office manager who has been working at Del Norte Animal Clinic for over 12 years. She is a mother of two and has always been passionate about helping and working with animals. She graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Major in Anthropology and a Minor in Biology. She assumes human resources responsibilities including:

  • Hiring, evaluating and developing action plans
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Creating a self sufficient work place through organizing, labeling and developing protocols
  • Arranging scheduling regarding work shifts and rotation of daily skills
