We offer the opportunity for equine-focused students to experience working in a busy private equine practice with medical, surgical, and ambulatory services. We also hope to evaluate potential intern candidates.
Our externship program officially began in 2003. We have had ~ 400 veterinary students come to visit from forty different schools across the United States and thirteen other countries. We are a private practice in Salinas, California with a northern branch on the San Francisco Peninsula (based out of Woodside, CA). We see all disciplines of horses -- hunter/jumper, dressage, western performance, and three day eventers -- and provide advanced diagnostic imaging (such as ultrasound, x-ray, endoscopy, gastroscopy, bone scan, and CT). We have 12 veterinarians on staff, including board certified specialists in Internal Medicine, Surgery, ABVP, and Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. Chiropractic and acupuncture services are also offered.
