OCALA EQUINE HOSPITAL, PA
INTERN CANDIDATES FOR THE HORSE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Ocala Equine Hospital is a surgical referral center established to treat elective surgical cases and orthopedic emergencies. We have a full range of advanced surgical and diagnostic equipment enabling us to provide premier services for the region. Our swimming pool recovery system is unique to the region and compliments our expertise in fracture repair. We are on the forefront of diagnostic imaging and have modalities such as positron emission tomography, standing and general anesthesia computed tomography, high-field MRI, and nuclear scintigraphy. The veterinary staff consists of ten ambulatory clinicians, three boarded surgeons, a boarded internist (onsite consultant), and a boarded radiologist (onsite consultant). We currently have four interns that rotate through the hospital and ambulatory service.
For the first month of the program, interns undergo training with wet labs and direct mentorship time with ambulatory clinicians and are not responsible for seeing clients or emergencies on their own. On-call is rotated between interns ensuring every other weekend is completely off-call with no work-related responsibilities. Interns are not required to run anesthesia at this practice. The hospital also does not operate on colics, admit internal medicine cases, and has a low after-hours emergency caseload. Once comfortable, interns will have appointments and see emergencies as a primary clinician while always having backup. By the end of the internship, interns will have gained proficiency in the skills required to be a well-rounded practitioner.
Benefits include a well-rounded internship with significant time both in the field and hospital, a fun mentoring atmosphere, weekly rounds, and county rounds with other local practices. Additional benefits include housing, medical insurance, AVMA dues, AAEP dues, PLIT insurance, Florida licensure dues, a 2000- dollar stipend towards continuing education, and a week of vacation.
Ocala Equine Hospital is looking for individuals with a thirst for knowledge, an excellent work ethic, fantastic communication, and a passion for making equine veterinary medicine a sustainable career!
We recommend intern candidates complete a one-to-two-week externship at our practice prior to applying, however, it is not required.
