Philosophy of Internship: The goal of our internship is to provide interns with a high quality experience which balances in-hospital, ambulatory and academic veterinary medicine. Interns will have the experience and knowledge to begin a career in private equine ambulatory practice or pursue residency in a variety of fields upon successful completion of the program. The internship provides the veterinarian with an equivalent of approximately 5 year’s worth of private practice experience. Our internship tailors mentorship towards the professional goals of the individual to help them succeed in their personal goals. Interns acquire knowledge through diligent research of cases that come through the hospital and out in the field. At the conclusion of the internship, veterinarians are proficient in clinical skills (nasogastric intubation, IV catheterization, abdominal ultrasound, abdominocentesis, regional limb perfusion, diagnostic anesthesia, intraarticular injection, uterine lavage, neonatal care and restraint), evaluation of the first opinion and referred equine acute abdomen, common equine emergencies, field anesthesia, inhalant anesthesia, client communication, and much more. We provide guidance and active training so interns leave Chaparral Veterinary Medical Center prepared for a successful career in equine medicine.
