Philosophy of Internship: The goal of our internship is to provide you with a quality experience which balances in-hospital, ambulatory and academic veterinary medicine. You will have the experience and knowledge to begin a residency program or a career in private equine ambulatory practice upon successful completion of the program. The internship will provide you with an equivalent of approximately 5 years worth of private practice experience. You will acquire knowledge through diligent research on the cases that come through the hospital and out in the field.
