Kentucky Equine Hospital is seeking motivated interns who are excited to experience a well-rounded internship experience in all facets of equine medicine and surgery/sports medicine. Our services range from routine ambulatory practice to high quality surgical and sports medicine cases including advanced imaging and cutting-edge treatments.
Internship Philosophy: We believe that an internship should allow our new veterinarians the opportunity to increase their skill level, case knowledge and have continued exposure to all areas of equine practice in order to prepare them to continue onto a successful ambulatory career or become a successful resident applicant.
