Rare opportunity to develop your skills, gain exposure to diverse cases, and help develop our SporthorseRX program in Aiken, SC. Candidates will leave our program with the skills and experience necessary to land a solid, well paying job in equine veterinary medicine.
How we'll make you better:
- Weekly Sporthorse Medicine practiced on PEVS and Partner horses. You will perform joint injections, colic workups, lameness diagnostics (rads, ultrasound, etc) and other necessary services on horses owned by Performance Equine Vets (PEVS) and Participating Partners. Weekly supervision by excellent Vets with the hope of guiding you into proficiency. You will manage real cases without endangering client horses. (Why don't other Clinics do this?)
- Hospital case management, training and client communications. You will work side-by-side with PEVS staff on nearly all hospital cases. Your knowledge will be challenged as you learn how to find answers and manage cases. (Up for a challenge? Check your ego at the door!)
- You will run the SporthorseRX program in Aiken, in its entirety. Services will inlude farm calls, vaccinations, emergency response, outpatient sports med services, client education and services tasked specifically to you. You will work directly with local partners, learning the value of farriers, dentists and other equine service providers. (Learn the new equine vet business. Don't follow outdated models.)
- Horse Show Services - You will be part of the SporthorseRX Team that travels to shows around the Southeastern United States. At shows you'll gain experience in lameness, sports medicine, client communications and emergency response. (Boring people need not apply. Our shows are fun.)
The goal is to show you the reality of the equine veterinary industry. We'll teach you how NOT to be a tool (if you're willing to learn). We'll give you an opportunity to learn the BUSINESS side of the industry, of which you have little knowledge.
The world of equine veterinary medicine is changing. You can fall into the trap of the old model or join the future. Millennials are the future.
We're establishing partnerships with technology companies, developing proprietary social media tools and creating specialized services that cater to the wants and desires of the millennial generation. We need team members to make this happen. If you're up for the challenge, apply immediately.
We'll take 2 Interns for the 2017-2018 year.
Pay Package: $2,000 / mth salary + We'll provide you with accommodations, cover your insurance, licensing and CE costs within reason. You're welcome to bring your horse. We'll provide full-board on Clinic property which costs $700/mth.
