During a 4 week rotation at East Springs Animal Hospital, a student would be able to participate with doctors in out-patient service and in-patient care and surgery. Our strengths include preventive care, thorough diagnostics, and aggressive medical and surgical care when desired by the client, dental care and orthopedic surgery to include TPLO.We perform lap assisted gastropexies as well as lap oroscopic OVE and OVH. We see about 70 patients per day.
Previous externs have been expected to participate in daily rounds, help to devise treatment plans for in hospital patients and to practice their technical skills. We can have the extern perform some elective surgeries on pre-adoptive humane society cats and dogs as well as scrub in and assist during other surgeries and proceedures.Generally externs are here from about 8:00am until 6:00pm with a break for lunch. They can participate 4-6 days per week only limited by our hours of operation or their personal preference.
At most any point in the day a student would have contact with a veterinarian.
