Allegheny Equine has two internship positions available for 2023-2024. Our goal is to provide a positive internship experience that results in the skills and confidence to be a successful general equine practitioner. Interns will gain experience in all aspects of equine practice, including both inpatient and ambulatory cases. Weekly case/topic rounds address a variety of topics in medicine. Our interns are expected to transition to working independently on an emergent and routine basis, with the guidance of senior clinicians. Interns have the opportunity to assume a primary role in client communication and emergency case management.
Initially, interns will work with staff veterinarians but will transition to independent work as internship progresses. Work will include but not be limited to routine wellness care, dentistry, mare and stallion management, colic workups, lameness exams, emergency care, internal medicine, and alternative medicine.
Allegheny Equine is also committed to the work-life balance and well-being of everyone on our team, including interns. Interns will receive 2 weekends off per month, as well one full weekday off per week.
