The caseload consists of approximately 90% horses (thoroughbred & standardbred racehorses, warmbloods, others) & 10% other (bovine, pigs, caprine, etc). This 1-year rotating program commences in mid july. By late August, the LA Medicine Intern must select a faculty advisor, who is responsible for supervision & clinical performance evaluation. Approximately 85% of the LA Medical Intern's time is spent with the large animal medicine service.

The LA Medical Intern will be responsible for the management of cases admitted to the hospital, as part of a team consisting of one-two faculty members, a DVSc (resident/graduate student), the LA Medical Intern, two additional interns, & up to four final-year veterinary students. Within the service team concept, the LA Medical Intern is given increased responsibility as he/she progresses through the program with the goal that the LA Medical Intern is functioning at a first-year resident level fairly early in their appointment. The LA Medical 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. The LA Medical Intern will participate in the DVSc (resident/graduate student) pool equally sharing out-of-hours emergency duty across both the medicine & surgery services (with faculty supervision) on a rotating basis. Interns always maintain 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, the Large Animal Medicine Service Chief and their faculty advisor.
