OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Owensboro Community & Technical College is adding a two-year veterinary technology program next fall.
School officials say the program is needed due to a shortage of available workers in the field. President James Klauber told the Messenger-Inquirer that school officials will spend the next year developing a curriculum for the program.
In an application for grant funding, Klauber noted a state report that said demand for vet technologists and technicians is expected to rise by nearly 39 percent through 2018 and a survey that says local veterinarians are having trouble finding and keeping qualified techs.
The newspaper reports that currently only two in-state four-year universities offer vet tech programs -- Morehead State University and Murray State University.
