Mobile veterinary training lab stops in Parsons




A mobile veterinary training lab made its way to Parsons, Kansas on Monday.  It's part of a veterinary technology program that is a combination of online classes, clinical work and working in the mobile lab.

Officials say the lab also allows for smaller class sizes and really isn't much different from learning in a traditional classroom.

It's main purpose is to give veterinary students experience without making them move far away.

"There isn't a huge difference between the mobile teaching lab and if this was at a brick and mortar school," says Dr. Margi Sirios, the Veterinary Technology Program Director.  "We have similar facilities, equipment is all the same.  The benefit of course is that the student doesn't have to travel a distance and uproot their life."

The program will be offered in five community's throughout Kansas, including Parsons.

The mobile lab will travel to each city once a week for students to get the training experience they need.
