We also offer externship programs for veterinary students and veterinary technician students.
Veterinary externships are available for veterinary students with a primary professional interest in equine veterinary medicine. Visits may be scheduled throughout the year for a minimum of one week and up to a one-month visit. Externships are limited to third and fourth year veterinary students only. Externs work intimately with our doctors with patient care and assisting the technical staff. Externs are also welcome in clinical rounds and in journal club. During the externship students are expected to assist practitioners as needed and are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Limited housing accommodations are provided at the clinic and include a private room with television and bathroom. Liability insurance will be provided by the clinic. Externs are responsible for their own medical insurance.
