Equine Internal Medicine Internship / Fellowship Position
The Hospital for Large Animals in Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University is accepting applications for a 9-month (extendable to June, 2023) internship position, effective immediately, with the option to participate in clinical research. The Hospital for Large Animals is a full-service facility with a caseload of predominantly competition and pleasure horses (85%). The remaining caseload is distributed between farm animals and exotic species. Sophisticated diagnostic facilities include a pulmonary function lab, endoscopy, gastroscopy, ultrasonography, computer tomography, 3T MRI, nuclear imaging, high-speed treadmill analysis with endoscopy, and a comprehensive veterinary diagnostic laboratory.
The successful candidate will assist clinicians and residents of the Large Animal Internal Medicine Service in evaluating and managing patients, while being mentored to take primary case responsibilities and assisting in all aspects of patient care under supervision of clinicians and residents. The intern will spend a minimum of 75% of their time on internal medicine and have the opportunity to rotate through the Sports Medicine Service (orthopedics), General Surgery Service (soft tissue), and Large Animal Ultrasound Service. Participation in clinical research is also encouraged.
The intern will share after-hours emergency duty on a rotating schedule with the large animal medicine and surgery residents. Initially, emergency duty will be directly supervised by an emergency clinician or senior resident until the intern is confident and capable of handling primary call with a senior faculty member providing backup as needed. The intern will receive an emergency fee for all after-hours emergency cases. The intern will assist in the teaching of veterinary students and will participate in rounds, seminars, journal clubs, and didactic training as provided.
Cummings School has the benefit of being in a lovely rural area of Massachusetts with easy access to lakes, hiking, and skiing. We are close to 3 major cities, and the commuter rail to Boston is within easy walking distance to our campus.
