Claiborne Farm is seeking a veterinary intern to join our team in central Kentucky beginning January 2020 or July 2020. Claiborne is a 3000 acre farm with over 400 horses on site. In addition to dedicated crews for mares, foaling and yearling care, the farm has its own clinic space for medical treatment, ultrasound, radiology and endoscopic equipment, as well as a clinical laboratory. Dr. Bailey, the resident veterinarian, is a board certified theriogenologist with over 10 years of experience training interns and residents. The caseload will consist of routine herd management, reproductive management of brood mares, foaling and neonatal care for over 150 foals per year and supporting those foals through their first year of development. The intern will work under supervision of the resident veterinarian and have access to backup from trained staff and the veterinary team at all times. Due to the caseload and level of care the intern will have the opportunity to become proficient in a wide variety of elective and emergency procedures in a fast-paced friendly environment. There is additional opportunity to follow cases through their management at either of the two largest equine hospitals in the world, Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital and Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. This represents an excellent opportunity to build solid skills as an equine practitioner or to prepare a veterinarian for residency training in equine theriogenology, surgery or medicine.
Candidate must have graduated from and accredited United States or International Veterinary School with a DVM/VMD degree, and be eligible for licensure in Kentucky.
Submit a letter of Intent, CV, and 3 Letters of Recommendation. An externship or interview will be scheduled depending on availability.
