Available Positions

INTERNSHIPS AND RESIDENCIES

An internship is the first step in specialty training leading to board certification. Following an internship, a residency application may be submitted for further study in a particular discipline such as internal medicine, ophthalmology or surgery. Many laboratory animal medicine programs waive the internship requirement. This permits a graduate to enter directly into a residency program following graduation. Completion of a residency program is a pre-qualification for specialty board certification. Residency programs are generally three years in length.

An internship can provide additional development of clinical skills and case management acumen. It can offer further responsibility while still under the mentorship of faculty and residents of the school or college, or specialists in private practice.  

Information on the application process and deadlines may be found by visiting the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program website. Applications are due in December; please check the web site for specific date and application requirements.

Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency - Surgical Intern: Charlotte, NC (Posted 03/28/2022)

My name is Liz Thompson and I am a surgeon at Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency in Charlotte, NC. 

I am reaching out because we had an unfortunate scenario in which the person who accepted our position for surgical internship for the upcoming year has changed their mind on pursuing specialty surgery and decided not to sign the contract.  We were made aware about a week after he accepted, so any other interested candidates had already chosen other programs at that point. 

I thought I would just put the word out that we are still in search of a surgical intern and it could either be someone hoping to gain skills (and a research project as we have a couple options) to then enter into the match for residency the following year OR it could be someone interested in moving forward as a cutting ER doctor who wants to gain more surgical experience. 

We still require that they have completed a rotating internship. 

 If you know of anyone, I would very much appreciate you sharing my contact info with them (ethompson@carecharlotte.com).

Benefits: 12 days of sick leave annually, non-accumulative. For health insurance and other benefits,

see http://www.ohr.wisc.edu/benefits/new-emp/grad.aspx

Vacation: 2 weeks of vacation, non-accumulative.

Deadline for Applications

April 21st 2022, or until position filled

The intended program dates are July 15th 2022- July 14th 2025

The large animal internal medicine program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison aims to develop residents for a variety of careers for which ACVIM-LA board certification might be appropriate. Of the last 6 residents in our program 4 are currently in academic faculty positions and 2 are in private practice; our caseload is approximately 70% equine, and 30% food animal.

A cross section of different equine breeds are seen from Miniature horses to Draft breeds, but with a predominance of Quarter horses, Sport and Pleasure horses. The majority of the food animal caseload is comprised of very high genetic merit dairy cattle, both neonatal and adults of both sexes.

The caseload comprises a high number of emergency admissions and critical care inpatients across species, thus is suited to candidates with an interest in large animal critical care. The in-patient equine and food animal case load is further supported by a large animal surgery section comprised of 5 faculty and 3 house officers and the School of Veterinary Medicine enjoys excellent relationships with the dairy industry throughout the state of Wisconsin, most notably through the School’s Food Animal Production Medicine (FAPM) Section and Wisconsin State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (WVDL), the latter being located on the same footprint as the Veterinary School. There are two further board-certified large animal internists who are also involved in resident training located within the FAPM and WVDL. The program is designed to fulfill the requirements for board certification by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.  

The 36-month program can be approximately subdivided as follows: 

1) 24 months of clinical large animal internal medicine residency training; clinical training during this time is under the direct supervision of LA-ACVIM boarded faculty and involves case management of referral level patients within the large animal internal medicine section of the large animal hospital. As part of the training program, the resident will be expected to provide emergency care for animals during non-business hours on a rotating basis with other house officers. As the resident progresses in experience and expertise, increasing responsibility will be granted in the areas of patient management and veterinary student teaching. The resident will have considerable input into the clinical teaching program and will be provided opportunities for classroom and laboratory teaching. 

2) Across the 3 years, a total of 11 months will be made available, free of daytime clinical duties, for other activities. These activities include but are not limited to, formulation of a resident research project, writing of manuscripts, and preparation for ACVIM examinations (typically a minimum of 5 weeks of off-clinic time in each of the second and third year of the program). 

The resident is assigned a faculty mentor and collectively the resident and mentor will formulate a plan appropriate to the career goals and aspirations of the individual that also meets the credentialing pre-requisites of an approved ACVIM large animal internal medicine residency program. Portions of this 11 months are also used to meet LA-ACVIM credentialling requirements either within UW-Veterinary Care or outside the institution for clinical and anatomic pathology and advanced diagnostic imaging. 

Additional Information

The UW-Madison campus and the surrounding area have many enriching opportunities, Madison has been named the most bike-friendly city and the Dane County Farmer's Market is one of the largest in the nation; Madison has the most restaurants per capita of any U.S. city; Madison consistently ranks as a top community in which to live, work, and play; and the University is nationally recognized for academics, research, and athletics.

Bond Vet Mentorship Programme: MADE

Hope all is well! I was wondering if there would be a way to inform your students on Bond Vet's new mentorship program, MADE?

Bond Vet today announced it is launching MADE, a proprietary mentorship program for new veterinary graduates. MADE — Mentorship, Advancement, Development, & Education — is a fully-paid, 16-week program to help new graduates transition from a background of theoretical knowledge to a best-in class application of their medicine in the real world across a variety of cases. At a time when there’s a shortage of veterinarians and an increase in pet ownership, it’s more critical than ever to create opportunities for growth and longevity for veterinarians.

MADE is designed to be an alternative to the classic internship program done in a referral hospital, where doctors rotate through specialties. Interns typically earn ~$30k for a 60-80 hour week, resulting in burnout and fatigue at the very beginning of what should be an exciting career. Veterinary medicine faces undeniable challenges such as burnout, compassion fatigue, and staffing shortages and there are limited options for new grads, most of which have traditionally entailed low-paying specialty rotations or a new job lacking structured, positive onboarding.

Veterinary Specialty Hospital of San Diego - Rotating Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Internship (Posted 03/09/2022)

Rotating Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Internship

Our program link is here: https://www.virmp.org/Program/Detail/13311

 

Strengths of our program:

  1. Large number of specialists in virtually all disciplines of specialty veterinary medicine, who are readily available to interns, are very approachable, and are dedicated their profession, and to teaching interns. Interns work very closely with all specialists on a daily basis from the first day of the program. In addition, our specialists come from a wide range of backgrounds, and have contacts in many locations/ facilities and universities throughout the country, and the world.
  2. State of the art equipment
  3. Highly skilled technical staff.
  4. Very cohesive group who sincerely like each other, and enjoy working together; this tends to create a fun, friendly working environment
  5. Interns receive hands on training in advanced procedures and techniques, including ultrasound (AFAST/TFAST), pericardiocentesis (with and without u/s guidance), pleural and abdominal taps, joint taps, bone marrow aspirates, percutaneous needle biopsies, feeding tube placement (esophagostomy, nasogastric), sampling and double lumen intravenous catheter placement. Interns are also exposed to laparoscopy, and all types of endoscopy.
  6. Very high case load, interns receive direct guidance from specialists, residents and intern-trained ER doctors, but also have some degree of autonomy in admitting cases, developing diagnostic and treatment plans, and client communications for basic walk in ER cases, and have exposure to a very wide variety of complicated referral cases.
  7. Digital radiology allows for review of radiographs (by radiologists or other specialists) even when they are not in the hospital. We have 2 board certified radiologists on staff that does bimonthly rounds with the interns, and are available M-F for consults at any time. Additionally we utilize a radiology service to allow twenty-four hour radiology review for overnight cases if needed.
  8. We have a very good track record in placing interns in residencies, and our former interns enter their residencies very well prepared for any chosen programs.

Other things to note:

  1. Long hours, and a lot of hard work. However, interns get two days off in a row every week/every 7 day period. Interns are given a reasonable amount of flexibility in their schedules to allow travel for CE, residency interviews and vacations at times selected by the intern.
  2. We do not have in house avian/ exotics specialist, and do not see exotic pets at our hospital. However we have a close relationship with the San Diego Zoo or Safari park, and interns with interest in zoo medicine are usually able to set up an out-rotation there (Zoo schedule permitting). 
  3. There is not an organized program for interns to receive primary surgical experience. However, the surgical experience our interns receive is very thorough. Interns are expected to scrub in on elective and emergency surgical cases, are involved in the management of a large number of a wide variety of surgical cases (soft tissue, orthopedic, neurologic, ophthalmologic), and working one on one with the surgeons. As the year progressed, interns may be able to perform approaches and closure as experience, case, and the primary surgeon allows. There is no spay and neuter program; however interns have the option to rotate with the San Diego Humane Society where they receive a large amount of primary surgical experience (spays and neuters, other routine elective surgeries possible). Interns must have CA permanent license* to work at outside locations. We feel very strongly that the surgical training our interns receive is exceptional, and that they develop a very strong foundation in all aspects of surgery.
  4. We do not have a GP program, and do not see routine/wellness cases. We have very close relationships with nearby GPs and interns could arrange an out-rotation if desired. Interns must have CA permanent license* to work at outside locations.

Mentorship

     

At the beginning of the year, we match up interns with specialists who will act as that intern’s mentor. Mentors are able to help interns with residency applications, and with advice on how to choose a specialty and residency, and how to maximize your chances of obtaining a residency. Mentors are also a source of support if the intern is having difficulties or going through a challenging experience. Additionally, we are all very approachable. All of us are interested in the success of our interns. We are available to help you with potential publication ideas. A retrospective study or case report is doable within the year’s time constraints for motivated and exceptional interns who use their time efficiently. Prospective studies are more difficult. If you have an idea, talk to us!

What are we looking for in an intern candidate?

The main quality we are looking for in an intern is the desire to be here, and an eagerness to learn. We want someone who is a hard worker, and who understands that they can get out of a program only what they put into it. Interns should have a positive attitude, get along with others, and truly enjoy our profession. A sense of humor can be a big attribute! Professionalism and the ability to interact appropriately with clients, referring veterinarians, other House Officers, specialists and staff is important. Dedication and attitude can go a long way- a deficiency in one’s technical experience or knowledge base can always be improved upon with hard work, perseverance, and a good attitude.

What research opportunities are there for interns?

The internship is primary a clinical year. There are no specific research projects that interns will be involved in. For self-driven interns, it is possible, and there is support from senior clinicians to complete a case report or case series. This must be done on your own time.

Licensure:

To practice veterinary medicine in California, a current California state license is required. Please see the California Veterinary Medical Board as soon as you learn that you have matched with our program, in order to get the ball rolling for your license. (There are often significant delays which can create scheduling challenges).   Their website is https://www.vmb.ca.gov/.

Housing:

Please contact our current interns for details. We have not had any interns have too much difficulty finding reasonable housing near our hospital.  As is typical for any rental property in most cities, there may be some difficulty finding rentals that allow large breed dogs.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets Externships (Posted 01/13/2022)

 

 

FCNMHP is now offering a new externship opportunity that encompasses both Incremental/Practical medical care and HQHVSN. First Coast No More Homeless Pets helps people and their pets with affordable, accessible veterinary care through our sustainable industry-leading programs, services and solutions. We are not a shelter, but we make shelters stronger with a broad range of comprehensive programs like our community medicine clinic, incremental care hospital, Pet Food Bank and through low-cost or no-cost spay neuter programs. In this past year alone, FCNMHP performed 23,070 S/N surgeries, treated 55,378 clients, supported our neighbors in need with over

$257,000 in charitable care grants and so much more!

FCNMHP externs will gain first-hand experience in providing affordable and accessible veterinary care to our local community who have demonstrated barriers to accessing care. Externs will interact with both staff and patients as they learn practical/incremental medicine, preventive medicine, shelter medicine, ID and reporting of victims of cruelty, and observe more

complicated medical and surgical conditions. They will work 1:1 with our staff DVMs to learn an immense amount of information by exposure to our extensive caseload. Externs will also have the ability to shadow our HQHVSN surgeons in addition to having firsthand surgical experience with cats and dogs depending on skill level.

Candidates must be third or fourth-year veterinary students in good academic standing at an AVMA accredited school of Veterinary Medicine. Fourth-year students will have priority. We do not enroll any students for externships from December 24 through January 1. We can accommodate veterinary student externs for a maximum of 2 weeks and time will be split between our veterinary hospital and community clinic as well as S/N facility. At this time housing is not provided but a stipend may be discussed for the right candidates.

FCNMHP is currently accepting applications for August 2022 through November 2023. Applications must be received at least two months prior to the requested start date and priority will be given to those with interest in Incremental/practical medicine, HQHVSN and shelter medicine.

Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists (CCVS) - Emergency and Critical Care Specialty Internship (Posted 01/06/2022)

Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists (CCVS) is a 24-hour small animal emergency and specialty center with six available positions for our emergency and critical care specialty internship. This is a one-year program. Our hospital also has an emergency and critical care residency program. Our mission is to produce functional emergency doctors that practice a high standard of care and foster critical thought when making medical decisions.

In support of these goals, the CCVS internship works continuously to advance animal health and well-being by providing educational experiences both for and by interns and residents and by providing outstanding veterinary care. We strive to uphold our central values of a drive for excellence, accountability, trust, respect, commitment, professionalism, integrity, innovation, collaboration, and compassion.

This program is directly supported by three ACVECC Diplomates with two additional residency trained doctors sitting for boards this year. Additional specialists that work in support of the program include: four board-certified surgeons, one board-certified anesthesiologist, one board-certified radiologist, and one board certified cardiologist. There are also a board-certified cardiologist and a board-certified ophthalmologist with limited hours at our Dennis facility.

We are actively recruiting for, including but not limited to, additional criticalists, ER associates, a surgeon and internist.

CCVS has two locations on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The primary hospital is located at the gateway to Cape Cod in Buzzards Bay, MA. The second hospital is mid-Cape in South Dennis, MA. We are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The associate veterinarians, residents and criticalists work shifts at both locations. Interns may also work at both locations.

Our facilities offer a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, including a CT scanner, 2 ultrasound machines, echocardiography, 3 ventilators (1 anesthetic, 2 critical care), a blood bank with growing group of community donors, state of the art monitoring equipment including cage-side continuous ECG, 6 lead ECG, SpO2, EtCO2, direct arterial pressure monitoring, and viscoelastic coagulation monitoring. We are also equipped for parenteral nutrition formulation and administration.

Interns will have primary case responsibility through the emergency and critical care service. There is the potential for rotations with services outside of ECC, including surgery and cardiology. Cage side rounds with specialists occur twice daily. Interns will have direct overlap and guidance from senior veterinarians on the majority of their shifts. A criticalist is also available 24/7 for phone consultation. Didactic rounds and CE lectures are provided throughout the year. Interns will be expected to present a lecture on a topic of their choosing. Participation is expected in morbidity & mortality rounds and journal club sessions throughout the year.

Prior interns have successfully entered residencies for specialties of their choosing (emergency/critical care, internal medicine and dermatology). We have two interns currently in our program.

Cape Cod offers miles of beaches and numerous opportunities for outdoor activities including sailing, kayaking, fishing, and diving. The White Mountains of New Hampshire are 2 ½ hours away and provide some of the best mountain hikes on the east coast. Additionally, the practice is approximately 1 hour from Boston, MA and Providence, RI offering two large cities to explore and enjoy.

We are a proud United Veterinary Care Partner hospital. United Veterinary Care supports the unique culture and individuality of each partner hospital, while leaving the practice of medicine up to the hospital teams.

We strongly encourage an on-site interview prior to February 18, 2022, using COVID safety precautions. If an in-person interview is not possible, video or phone interviews are encouraged. Please contact Tracey Nowers at traceynowers@capecodvetspecialists.com to schedule an interview.

Due to the caseload and level of care the intern will have the opportunity to become proficient in a wide variety of elective and emergency procedures in a fast-paced friendly environment.

There is additional opportunity to follow cases through their management at either of the two largest equine hospitals in the world, Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital and Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. This represents an excellent opportunity to build solid skills as an equine practitioner or to prepare a veterinarian for residency training in equine theriogenology, surgery or medicine. 

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package and housing is provided on request. The intern will have 2 weekends/month off, 1 week (6 days) of vacation and attendance at one CE conference. Vacation time and CE will be taken July-December at the discretion of the farm management.

To express interest, please contact Dr. Bailey at the numbers above or submit a letter of intent, CV, and 3 letters of recommendation through the AAEP Avenues Internship portal. An externship or interview will be scheduled depending on availability.

TLC Animal Hospital - Externship/Internship El Paso, TX (Posted 10/06/2021)

Want to experience a small animal and exotics veterinary hospital IRL? 

Want to be mentored by experienced veterinarians with diverse backgrounds? 

Want to learn in an environment that fosters forward thinking, team work, and quality realistic medicine? 

Want to eat some really good Mexican food? 

Well, look no further than TLC Animal Hospital!

What makes us so special?  We constantly strive to practice the “golden rule.”  In a nutshell, our leadership and management are constantly working to ensure we are the type of business we ourselves would want work in as team members, as well the type of hospital we would want to take our pets as clients. 

For the more elaborate explanation: -We believe in practicing quality medicine and advocating for our patients’ physical and emotional well-being. -We believe in providing clients with a quality experience. -We believe in having a quality of life concern for our staff and fostering a healthy workplace culture.

So what does this mean for a veterinary intern? -It means you can practice medicine you can be proud of.  It means you have access to mentorship and support from Dr. Dashley, Dr. Lara and Dr. Reyes. 

When time allows, we endeavor to have interns practice procedures such as e-tube placement, spays/neuters, enucleations, declaws, skin closures, tail amputations, and tooth extractions on cadavers.  We help you work up cases and practice client communication and physical exams. -It means you can get a ton of experience and education, while still having time to enjoy the local cuisine and culture of El Paso.  We are truly a gem of the southwest, with lots of food, shopping, outdoor activities, and recreation. 

We are also within driving distance of the forests of Cloudcroft and Ruidoso, the unique vistas of White Sands, and the caverns of Carlsbad. -It means that you can earn a bit of cash to help with those pesky student loans.  Veterinary student externs are paid $1000 per week, with included hotel and travel expenses. -It means flexibility.  Just want to practice on dogs and cats and never touch a bird again?  That’s okay.  If you are interested in small exotics (sorry, no Ostriches), Dr. Dashley and Dr. Reyes are more than happy to help you out. 

Not interested in orthopedics?  Not everyone is a bone carpenter, so we understand ;) -It means you have access to a brand-spanking-new, beautiful, fully-loaded veterinary hospital.  7 exam rooms, 2 surgery tables in a dedicated surgical suite, 2 dental tables in a dedicated dental suite, 5 treatment tables, genuine isolation room, separate dog and cat waiting, separate dog and cat kennel areas, digital white board, digital radiography (including horizontal beam), ultrasound and echocardiography, digital dental radiographs, electro- and radiocautery, surgical laser, cold laser, HotDog patient warming systems, full anesthesia monitoring (including EtCO2),  and in house lab machines (chem, CBC, coag, urinalysis, and IDEXX snap tests).

Sorry, no crystal ball or magic wand, but here’s to hoping! Future plans for the practice include pursuing AAHA accreditation, incorporating CT and endoscopy, expanding our exotics services to include rabbit and rodent dentistry, and adding more wonderful associate veterinarians to our growing TLC family.  Padawan externs may very well be offered an associate position as a full fledged veterinarian Jedi upon graduation and licensure!
