Grayson Tech Opens Surgical Suite!
Veterinary Technician students of Gwinnett Technical College and Veterinary Science students of Grayson Technical Education Program will begin a partnership this 2019-2020 school year. Construction began over the summer and will be complete during the first semester. The new surgical site, located on the Grayson Tech/Grayson High School campus, will serve as a location for elective procedures, such as spaying and neutering. All patients will come from the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter and then later become available for adoption. The on staff Gwinnett Tech Veterinarian will perform surgery and the Gwinnett Tech Veterinary Technology students will practice their skills such as, but not limited to: venipuncture, catheter placement, surgical prep and recovery. As the Grayson Tech Vet Science students obtain knowledge, they will be asked to preform Veterinary Assisting skills, such as obtaining vital signs, record keeping, and generally shadowing the Vet Tech students. This experience will allow the Grayson Tech students a hands on experience before they begin their 15 week internship and provide Gwinnett Tech students the opportunity to compete the required skills prior to graduation and state licensure.
