Anoka Equine offers this internship opportunity to foster the professional growth of equine veterinarians through mentorship and hands on learning. We feel that providing a team approach of delivering high quality medicine to our equine patients and exceptional communication to our clients allows the intern to develop the skills necessary to be a successful equine practitioner. The variety of equine disciplines as well as the varied case load (both primary care and referral cases) will further prepare the intern for private practice or entry into a residency program.
The internship is for one year, from June 1st to May 31st. The intern is scheduled to work weekdays and every other weekend. Until September 1st the intern will be scheduled with a staff veterinarian and will see appointments both in the hospital and in the field. Beginning September 1st, the intern will begin seeing routine ambulatory calls on their own. These will include:preventative health, dentistry, lacerations, acute lameness, reproduction and colic workups. The intern will continue to see appointments and hospital cases at the clinic with a staff veterinarian. These will include but are not limited to: surgeries, endoscopic exams, advanced lameness exams, advanced dental work, internal medicine cases, neonatal care and advanced reproduction services. The intern will also learn and perform general anesthesia, rotating through the anesthesia duties with our CVTs.
Please submit a cover letter, resume/curriculum vitae and three letters of reference. Completion of a previous two week student externship at Anoka Equine is not required, but is highly desirable.
NOTE: in the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, we unfortunately have had to cancel 2020 externships. However, effective August 7th, we have now reopened externships to only 4th year students that do not need housing.
Due to this restriction, this year's applicants will NOT be expected to have participated in an externship.
