Gateway is only the second college in the 16-college Wisconsin Technical College system to host a vet tech program. Gateway has both a Veterinary Assistant technical diploma and a Veterinary Technician associate degree program. Students learn in a professional setting in a self-contained building, which features collaborative learning spaces and simulates a working veterinary facility for optimum learning. The treatment area, exam room, diagnostic imaging area and surgical suite contain equipment that veterinary assistants and technicians will use in the field. Upon completion of the one-year technical diploma, students may continue their education in the Veterinary Technician associate degree program. 

Gateway Technical College’s Veterinary Technician program has been granted initial accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association.
