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.

Position: Specialty oncology internship (Possible direct entry for a new graduate who has not yet completed a rotating internship) (Posted: 12/23/2019)
VCA Veterinary Care Animal Hospital and Referral Center (VCA Vet Care) is a busy and continually growing general and specialty practice located in beautiful Albuquerque, NM. We currently have 6 highly experienced general practitioners, 2 emergency clinicians, and the following board certified specialists: 1 critical care specialist (ECC), 2 internists, 2 oncologists, 2 ophthalmologists, and 2 surgeons. We also currently have eight rotating interns. Our internal medicine doctors run a busy clinical practice and offer a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Our surgeons are skilled in orthopedic, soft tissue, neurologic, oncologic, and minimally invasive surgeries. We have a dedicated ophthalmology surgical suite and our ophthalmologists are involved in cutting-edge research along with performing a multitude of ophthalmic surgeries. Our criticalist loves teaching and is actively involved in managing critical patients while ensuring high quality care in the ICU. Our boarded oncologists are enthusiastic teachers and see a variety of cancer cases which provide interns with many opportunities for hands-on experience. The intern directors, our experienced general practitioners, and our support staff are dedicated to ensuring that our interns receive the best mentoring and training possible. Our 10,000 square foot specialty center provides a comprehensive critical care unit staffed around the clock, diagnostic tools such as a helical CT scan and fluoroscopy, and advanced medical procedures such as I-131 radiation, interventional radiology, and cataract surgery.
You will actively participate in medicine and surgery rotations along with daytime (general practice) receiving, and overnight emergency. On medicine and surgery rotations, interns work one-on-one with the specialists and have shared primary case responsibility. During the medicine rotation, interns will gain valuable clinical experience managing a wide range of cases while also performing a variety of procedures such as ultrasonography, feeding tube placement, and urinary catheterization. Interns are also exposed to flexible and rigid endoscopy procedures with some practical hands-on experience. On the surgery rotation, you will gain valuable experience in diagnosing a myriad of orthopedic conditions and will be exposed to a variety of soft tissue, oncologic, and neurologic surgical cases. While seeing patients on general receiving, you will be exposed to routine (otitis externa, superficial pyoderma, lameness, etc.), as well as urgent cases such as hemoabdomen, GDV, and acute hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. On overnights you will be joined by an ER clinician for the majority of the shift. By the end of the year, you will feel comfortable triaging, diagnosing, and treating just about every condition imaginable!
You will also rotate through each of our specialty services, including time with a local board certified neurologist and dermatologist. The local board certified dentist rotates through our hospital providing exposure to advanced dentistry. Rotations are also available with a board certified cardiologist who travels to our hospital. Our interns have been able to schedule time at the Rio Grande Zoo for zoo medicine experience. Valuable elective surgery experience is obtained through a regular outside rotation with the local shelter association. Each year interns complete over 600 spays and neuters through the program, and previous classes have been honored with awards by the City of Albuquerque for their commitment to the local shelter. An abundance of lacerations, pyometras, gastrotomies, and other urgent conditions allow you to gain additional surgical experience under the supervision of an experienced practitioner. If you have a special interest in an area not provided during your training, you are given the opportunity to participate in an outside rotation. In these cases, special consideration is given to interns actively pursuing a residency.
Our program provides an excellent mixture of one-on-one clinical teaching (e.g., daily morning case rounds with all scheduled specialists), didactic training (formal seminars, morbidity/mortality rounds, journal club), and primary case responsibility. We have a very strong, formal mentorship program to help our new doctors through the rigors of an internship.

Where: New England Equine Medical & Surgical Center
Location: Dover, New Hampshire
Details: New England Equine Medical & Surgical Center is a private referral hospital founded in 2005 and located in Dover, New Hampshire. It provides 24-hour emergency and referral services exclusively for equine patients, clients, and referring veterinarians throughout New England as well as routine inhospital evaluations for the local clientele. It is surrounded by quaint New England towns and is located only minutes from the seacoast, an hour from Boston, and centrally located to the mountains and lakes regions of New Hampshire and Maine. We also provide comprehensive ambulatory services to farms in the region including routine preventative and emergency care as well as lameness and medical evaluations.
NEEMSC is housed in a 34,000 square-foot facility that includes two full surgical suites, a medical
exam room (ophthalmology, cardiology, ultrasonography, and endoscopy), a neonatal intensive care
unit, digital radiography suite, full service laboratory, a large general exam and main treatment room, medicine barn with stall space for 8 inpatients and ICU care, surgery and lameness barns with stall space for 18 horses, a lameness evaluation area on hard footing as well as a covered lameness
evaluation area on soft footing, and a 4-stall isolation unit. A separate imaging center houses nuclear
scintigraphy, CT, and MRI for cases requiring advanced imaging techniques for comprehensive
lameness and neurologic evaluations. We offer the services of an acupuncturist, farriers, clinical
pathologists, a cardiologist, and radiologists on a consultant basis. In addition, our Field Services
division has two fully equipped trucks with portable digital radiography, ultrasound, shockwave,
gastroscopy, and upper airway endoscopy.
The internship program provides comprehensive training in equine medicine, surgery, emergency/
critical care, ophthalmology, cardiology, advanced imaging, sports medicine, and adjunctive therapies including equine physical therapy. Individuals receive training and mentoring from experienced clinicians, each with expertise in different areas of equine medicine, surgery, lameness, and ophthalmology. Due to our teamwork approach interns also interact extensively with our experienced and dedicated staff of technicians, barn attendants, and consultants. The internship is an intensive “hands-on” oriented program with primary clinicians providing support and guidance as needed to the intern to allow the development and sharpening of clinical knowledge and skills. We have always prided ourselves on the degree of independence we have instilled in our interns throughout the year.
As knowledge and experience increases so does independence. We have 3 intern positions available yearly. The interns rotate on medicine and surgery services assisting with outpatient appointments,
emergencies, elective surgeries, and care and treatment of the hospitalized patients. Interns also see
field cases with our field service. There is a rotating schedule for on-call emergency responsibilities
with a senior clinician and surgeon as backup.
The caseload is substantial. A typical day may include 5-8 lameness appointments, 3-4 medical
evaluations, and 2-5 elective and/or emergency surgeries (including arthroscopy, other orthopedic
cases, respiratory procedures, colic, and other soft tissue problems) as well as CT or MRI evaluations under general anesthesia. Two to Three days a week, the ophthalmologist sees 5-6 outpatients and/or performs 1-2 surgical procedures in addition to being available for emergencies. The
cardiologist sees cases on an as needed basis. Colic is our most common emergency and
approximately 300 cases may present in a year of which about 85-90 are surgical. Our horse
population is diverse and includes sport horses (eventing, hunter/jumper, dressage), racing (STB, TB), competitive trail riding, driving, western pleasure, drafts, many interesting breeds, and backyard pasture pets. This provides diverse experience for clinicians allowing us to see more than the “typical” problems of a single population of horses.
Currently the interns begin their year-long position at the end of June to beginning of July and are
provided with a comprehensive compensation package which includes a salary, health insurance
availability, continuing education allowance, one week paid vacation, paid exam and licensure fees, association membership (including AAEP), and additional stipends for emergency and after-hours
admits and discharges paid on a quarterly basis (averages $500-1000 per quarter). To ensure
excellence and continuity of care, interns are required to live in the apartment above the hospital
during nights on call and are strongly encouraged to live there full time.
At the end of the yearlong training, interns should expect to have gained proficiency in diagnostic,
technical, and surgical skills and developed a deeper understanding of equine medicine. The
experience will prepare them for private practice or for further residency training. Past interns have successfully completed residencies and become highly respected specialists in their fields. Many have
remained in the New England area and become successful referring veterinarians.
Veterinary students interested in the internship positions are strongly encouraged to spend at least 1-2 weeks doing an externship at NEEMSC before applications are due. Please contact Aurora Sochan,
the extern coordinator, at [email protected] to schedule an externship. It is important
that intern candidates work well with each other and with the doctors and staff of the hospital. Most
every successful intern candidate has spent at least 2 weeks as an extern.
The internship application consists of:
• a curriculum vitae
• a letter of intent
• a copy of school transcripts
• 3 letters of recommendation
• a personal photo
Internship applications should be submitted to the internship coordinator electronically at
[email protected] or via the mail to:
