The Hagyard Equine Medical Institute externship program provides students the opportunity to gain “real-world”experience in a group practice dedicated to caring for some of the most valued equine patients in the world. The program design allows students to choose from a wide array of high quality equine veterinary medical services, each one a specialty of the firm.
