Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital is offering up to three, year-long, rotating internships.
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, reproductive and emergency medicine) and ambulatory 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. 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. At this time, we are only able to accept applicants who are American or Canadian citizens.
Interested students are encouraged to contact our program coordinator, Dr. Tasha Likavec at email@example.com, for more information. To schedule an externship, please contact Tricia Kasten at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR JUNE 2022-JULY 2023. It is STRONGLY recommended to get your applications in as soon as possible.
