PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

EQUINE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

 
Davie County Large Animal Hospital internship program gives recently graduated veterinarians the opportunity to gain knowledge and hands-on skills working in a fast paced, fully equipped hospital, with an abundant and diverse caseload of equine patients.

This program will sharpen the diagnostic, therapeutic, and communication skills of the recent graduate. The intern will assist with appointments both at the hospital and ambulatory cases.  After a 30-day training period, the intern may be given primary responsibility on routine cases as well as after-hours and weekends emergencies.
