Equine Medicine and Surgery Internship
The University of Missouri-Columbia, College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery’s Equine service invites applications for an equine internship position.
The internship offers rotations through the equine ambulatory, medicine, and surgical services with opportunities to focus time in individual areas depending on the applicant’s area of interest. The position provides the opportunity to work in a progressive environment where continual learning, high standards, and teamwork are emphasized. Primary goals of the internship program are to enable interns to practice veterinary medicine with an increased depth of experience, help interns achieve their learning goals, and, if desired, to help satisfy requirements for entry into residency board certification programs.
The duration of the internship will be 12 - 18 months depending on the goals of the selected candidate. Interns share in clinical service and emergency duty rotation with other equine house officers and participate in clinical instruction of third- and fourth-year veterinary students during their clinical rotations. In order to minimize response time for hospitalized patients, interns are expected to obtain housing within a 20-minute radius of the Veterinary Health Center. As part of their internship program, interns attend resident/intern seminars and present one 25-minute seminar. Interns also participate in clinical rotation rounds and have opportunities to attend and participate in the various journal/book clubs and faculty/resident rounds organized by the equine section. Possibilities for interaction or participation in research or educational projects also exist.
Annual salary will be $30,000.
