Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital is offering up to three, year-long, rotating internships. We also have spots available for Spring 2021 for veterinary students who are graduating in January/February 2021.
The internship program at WECH is designed to provide graduate veterinarians knowledge and experience that will prepare them for clinical practice or a residency program. The Wisconsin Equine Clinic offers hospital (including surgery, internal medicine and emergency medicine), ambulatory and reproductive experiences with special emphasis on providing each intern with mentors in every area of veterinary medicine.
Interns rotate between hospital, reproduction and ambulatory services. Interns are responsible for management of in- hospital cases, anesthesia for emergency cases, participation in ambulatory cases and emergency duty. The interns assume increasing case management, client communication, and solo ambulatory responsibilities throughout the year.
We strongly encourage prospective interns to do an externship at our clinic to determine if it would be a good fit for both parties. However, an externship is not required, especially during the pandemic. We are happy to conduct a phone or virtual interview in lieu of an in-person visit.
To apply, we require three letters of reference and a letter of application/intent from the applicant with CV. Applicants must graduate from an AVMA accredited program, acquire a valid Wisconsin veterinary license by the start date of employment, and have a valid driver's license.
Interested students are encouraged to contact our program coordinator, Dr. Tasha Likavec at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SPRING 2021 AND FOR JUNE 2021-JULY 2022. It is STRONGLY recommended to get your applications in as soon as possible.
