Our interns help create a stimulating learning environment where we all benefit from each other's experience and expertise. We provide a rotating internship which includes 2 week rotations on medicine, surgery, and ambulatory care. Our practice encompasses a broad range of breeds and disciplines and is predominantly equine, but interns will get experience with small ruminants and camelids as well. We strive to have our interns be prepared for entering either high quality private practice or residency training.
Onboarding for the Pilchuck Internship inlcudes a week long training program along with an additional week of specialized in-person anesthesia training by a boarded anesthesiologist.
Interns will be trained to take on ambulatory calls midway though the internship year to get personal experience handling emergencies while having the direct support from our hospital and ambulatory staff. Interns will be paid emergency fees from cases seen in field.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, applications are being accepted on a rolling basis. An externship is NOT a requirement for application - applicants unable to complete an externship will have the opportunity to schedule a remote interview for consideration of a complete application.
Please send an updated resume/CV, cover letter, photo, and letters of recommendation/references to firstname.lastname@example.org for application.
Internship Duties: Interns have primary case responsibility under the supervision of a senior clinician for the duration of the internship. The interns perform daily assessment of their cases, complete medical records, present cases in daily rounds, perform diagnostics, administer anesthesia, assist in surgery and medicine procedures and participate in monthly journal club. The interns on ambulatory service are under the direction of our doctors on all cases such as dentals, lameness exams, reproductive work, podiatry, etc. After hours/weekend on call rotation is for referral emergencies and the intern will see all cases alongside a senior clinician. Interns will rotate between primary receiving (with a senior clinician), being on anesthesia/back up call and off call. During the week, the intern is responsible for the care of their hospitalized cases and cases are transferred to doctor on call for the intern's weekend off. After hours treatments and monitoring are primarily carried out by overnight technicians and hospital staff.
