Cleveland Equine Clinic (CEC) began a veterinary internship program established in 2019. CEC is a full-service ambulatory and hospital-based practice with a fully equipped clinic for outpatient procedures, elective surgeries, and hospitalizations. Our goal is to assist recent graduates in creating a solid skill set for general practice, problem solving, and overall, a foundation to enter and be successful in the field of equine veterinary medicine. Our internship is designed to expose the intern to a large and diversified caseload. The Cleveland Equine team currently consists of eight veterinarians with an array of special interests including lameness, reproduction, dentistry, sport medicine, rehabilitation, chiropractic, acupuncture, ophthalmology and emergency medicine. We strive to provide the utmost in quality care and treatment. CEC has always been committed to being at the forefront of equine care, as demonstrated by our involvement in product development and clinical trial participation. At CEC, we utilize diagnostic modalities such as ultrasound, digital radiography, standing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), endoscopy, gastroscopy, in-house bloodwork, and computed gait analysis. Innovative treatment options such as platelet rich plasma (PRP), interleukin receptor antagonistic protein (IRAP), stem cell, and shockwave are all offered by CEC. Facilities include a 26 stall barn, multiple treatment areas, radiology suite, MRI suite, indoor arena, Intensive Care Unit, and an office and housing suite on the second story of the clinic as well as an Intern/Extern House located on the property.
What Interns Do…
Interns will spend the first few months working hands-on with each of our clinicians both in the clinic and ambulatory setting. This allows the intern to become familiar with the area, clientele, and practice values. The veterinarians will mentor the intern to help develop their skills and confidence as a new practitioner. Our interns have ample hands-on experience in all aspects of the program; the staff veterinarians prioritize demonstrating and allowing interns to practice performing tasks to prepare them for primary case management While in hospital, interns will assist with evaluation of patients, all procedures, diagnostic imaging and treatments. While on ambulatory appointments , the intern will become familiar with wellness care, lameness, reproduction, dentistry, alternative medicine and emergency care. As the intern progresses in the program, interns will be able to refine their skills and begin managing their own patients and cases through primary schedules and emergency calls. The intern will be supplied with their own practice vehicle, supplies, and equipment. Interns will also transition to working independently on emergent cases and hospitalized patients based on their comfort and senior doctor feedback regarding their progress in the program.. This will include 2 nights a week on call and 2-3 weekends a month on call. The goal of this program is to prepare the individual for a career as general practitioner and enter whatever discipline you desire with ample experience. We strive to provide a solid foundation to allow the individual to be successful in their future career yet expose them to multiple specialties to foster personal interest.
