3H Equine Hospital is a predominant equine only practice in the Raleigh, NC area. Under the mentorship of 4 veterinarians, our interns will gain a vast knowledge that is not only well-rounded but specialized as well. The owner of 3H has a small sport horse breeding program so there is always a large herd to help with skill-set development. We have a highly successful and progressive on-site rehabilitation center so interns will be able to have exposure to extensive treatment modalities such as Incline Treadmill, Water Treadmill, Salt Water Spa, RLT Laser, Cold Laser, Shockwave, Cyclossage, Infrared, and Vibration Plate therapies.
Our primary focus is sports medicine and wellness care and everything in between. We also do a small amount of reproduction and available to house mares in for foaling and neonatal care. The intern position will culminate with an advanced skill-set of handling emergency cases, lameness, surgical techniques, reproduction/breeding, castrations, dentistry, IRAP, PRP, ProStride, and stem cell therapies. We have a vet/podiatrist on staff that specializes in laminitis and all things feet, as well as doctors certified in acupuncture and chiropractic.
Our internship program will start with an intense one-on-one mentorship for 3-6 months before being asked to perform solo work. Working side by side another experienced veterinarian will allow you to improve your knowledge base, skill set, and confidence. You will learn client communication skills as well which are extremely important for your success as a practitioner. It is expected that you are a go getter. Come early, stay late. That being said, our internship still allows for quality of life. You will be expected to take 50% of on call (5pm-8a) which leaves 50% time to actually relax and enjoy your life in North Carolina. We have the ability to provide housing (off site) should that be needed.
