The Department of Clinical Sciences and the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Colorado State University offer a one-year equine ambulatory internship with rotation with in-house equine services at the James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
The internship is designed to provide a broad base of clinical experience in many aspects of equine practice including equine field service as well as rotations through the medicine, surgery, sports medicine, theriogenology, and critical care services within the equine hospital. The successful candidate will assist the existing equine ambulatory faculty with clinical duty throughout the year, and will be expected to participate in the clinical teaching of veterinary students. After hours ambulatory emergency duty will be expected and will be shared with the existing ambulatory resident and faculty. Primary case responsibility will be expected once the intern and faculty are comfortable. The candidate will also be expected to rotate through the in-house equine services within the veterinary teaching hospital for up to 20 weeks during the year. The equine ambulatory service sees approximately 2000 cases per year. Lameness and dentistry are the predominant presentation with reproduction, vaccinations, infectious disease, pre-purchase exams, regulatory (Coggins and health certificates) and emergencies (colic, lacerations, choke) comprising most of the remainder. The equine hospital sees a wide variety of different types of cases with approximately 2200-2500 horses seen yearly. All eight of our previous interns secured equine residencies or equine associate positions and are still in equine veterinary medicine.
