Hospital interns rotate in two-week blocks through the surgery, medicine, emergency, and anesthesia services. On all services except anesthesia, interns are assigned to a particular clinician for the entire two week block. This allows each intern to spend a dedicated block of time with each clinician. During the first half of the year (June-December), interns will rotate between all clinicians and anesthesia, ensuring a well-rounded experience and exposure to each clinician. During the second half of the year (January-May), the interns are able to collectively determine their rotation schedule , which can allow for more time in their areas of interest.
Primary responsibilities include care of hospitalized patients, assisting with surgical and medical procedures, lameness examinations, and diagnostic imaging, emergency duty, and anesthesia. Interns are involved in all aspects of case workup and treatment of in- and out-patients.
Emergency duty is a significant part of the internship experience. Each emergency is supervised by a clinician with usually more than one intern present. In the slower six months of the year, a weekly journal club or imaging rounds are attended by interns, residents and clinicians.
Interns must have graduated from veterinary school prior to the commencement of the internship. It is strongly recommended, but not required, that an externship be completed with us prior to applying for an internship. Applications are not accepted before August 1, 2021. To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, letter of intent, veterinary school transcript, and three letters of reference to Alanna Mathes at email@example.com.
