Does anyone have any advice about finding a vet who would be willing to serve as the clinical mentor for the hands-on part of distance learning?

Shadowing is one thing - I can see how vets wouldn't have a problem with that...but for them to allow you to actually perform procedures and video tape them, it seems you need to have a pretty close relationship with them.

Any advice?

JG,

put together a resume, explain what it is your doing and why, and send it out to local veterinary hospitals. With the current conditions in veterinary technology and the VTNE going graduate only, veterinarians are stepping it up to ensure the high level of technical training within their practices. I know of many practices in my state that are currently mentoring employees attending various programs.

Good luck with your endeavors!
