The Large Animal Hospital of the Ontario Veterinary College Health Sciences Centre (OVC HSC) is a large referral centre located in Southern Ontario. The caseload consists of approximately 90% horses (thoroughbred & standardbred racehorses, warmbloods, others) & 10% ruminants. This 1-year rotating program commences in late June. By late August, the Intern must select a faculty advisor, who is responsible for supervision & clinical performance evaluation. Approximately 85% of the Intern's time is spent equally between the large animal medicine & the large animal surgery services. However, the Intern will have the ability to consult with specialists from a large number of ancillary services. The Intern will be responsible for the management of cases admitted to the hospital, as part of a team consisting of a faculty member, a DVSc (resident/graduate student), the Intern, & up to four final-year veterinary students. Within the service team concept, the Intern is given increased responsibility as he/she progresses through the program. The Intern will participate in the clinical training of final-year veterinary students & will participate in daily case rounds, weekly journal club(s), weekly Grand Rounds, & an Intern rounds presentation. All Interns will be scheduled for out-of-hours emergency duty (with faculty supervision) on a rotating basis. The Intern always maintains the ability to consult with specialists from the various services. Interns are allotted working days for elective time (10 days) and for vacation (10 days). Elective time may be used for internal electives, continuing education or job interviews. Scheduling of electives and vacation must be approved by the Large-Animal Clinic Head and their faculty advisor.
