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 prequalification 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: Equine Medicine and Surgery Rotating Internship (posted 12/02/2016)
Name: Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at Washington State University
Company website: http://vcs.vetmed.wsu.edu/
Location: Pullman, WA
The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at Washington State University is accepting applications for a 1 year rotating internship in medicine and surgery. Interns rotate through equine medicine and surgery services with optional time on ancillary services. The goal of the internship is to provide a broad exposure to diagnosis and treatment of horses with a variety of surgical and medical problems. This experience will prepare the intern for further training opportunities and specialization or provide the opportunity to acquire more experience in developing diagnostic and treatment skills. Our goal is to provide a clinical experience that will allow individuals to excel as future clinicians, whether as private practitioners or certified specialists. The intern works under the direct supervision of the senior clinicians in all aspects of diagnosis, treatment and management of clinical cases in a direct, "hands-on" manner, in order to maximize her/his clinical experience. Interns are expected to participate in rounds on a daily basis and are involved in teaching 4th year veterinary students. One month of the year is an off clinical rotation, during which the intern is expected to prepare a manuscript for publication under the direction of a senior clinician. Because of the expertise of the faculty and the exposure to all advanced imaging modalities including MRI and CT, the primary goal of the internship is to prepare the individual to advance the care and treatment of horses with surgical and medical problems. The majority of cases referred to the hospital are for elective orthopedic surgery, soft tissue surgery, medical treatment, or lameness diagnosis. In addition to daily participation in clinical service and teaching, the interns are responsible for the primary receiving of cases referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital for emergency care. This is performed under the guidance of residents and clinicians assigned to the Emergency/ICU Clinical Service. The emergency caseload provides a broad exposure to the types of cases seen in private practices and referral centers. The cases span the spectrum from wounds to colic to intensive care for neonatal foal problems. Interns play an active, vital role in the care and treatment of these cases in our hospital. The internship begins on June 16, 2017.
Emergency Duty Requirements: Emergency duty is split between the residents and intern and includes night time, weekend, and holiday responsibilities. On some rotations the intern may be the only house officer assigned to a clinical service. It is therefore important that the intern have good clinical problem solving abilities and good inter-personal communication skills. Letters of reference should address these 2 requirements, in addition to the clinical abilities of the candidate.
Washington State licensure is not required for participation in this program.
Washington State University is an AA/EOE. Protected group members are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted until whenever the position is filled.
Letters of interest (no more than 1 page), the applicant’s resumé including grade point average and/or class rank or equivalent, and 2 letters of reference should be directed to:
