Each available internship is a 53 week in-hospital internship with a primary focus on surgery (upper airway, gastrointestinal, orthopedic, urogenital), lameness, emergency medicine, internal medicine, and anesthesia. At the Lexington and Saratoga practice, interns can obtain more experience in specific areas of interest due to a tailored rotation scheduled from January-May. The primary goal of each internship is to provide a strong foundation for application to a residency program or entrance into private practice. The busy caseload and number of clinicians provide diverse mentorship and a unique internship experience not available elsewhere. After-hours emergency duty is shared between specialists, and interns provide assistant surgeon, anesthesia, and technical support after-hours. All treatments, including after-hours and holidays, are performed by technicians. Outgoing interns and incoming interns are staggered to provide overlap and experience as the incoming class gets settled and trained.
Interns must be graduated from veterinary school prior to the commencement of the internship.
