Number of students reviewing: 
Average student review (out of five): 
Private practice mixed animal with emphasis on companion animal and dairy.
Interns will work side-by-side with the veterinary staff in seeing out-patient appointments, small animal surgery, in-patient case management in a rural Maine setting. They will also accompany veterinarians on ambulatory visits to farms, primarily dairy but with some equine and small ruminant as well. The clinic provides 24 hour emergency coverage, so an opportunity to participate in emergency cases may be available.
Besides the practice owner, Dr. Smith, the interns will have much time spent with 2 associate veterinarians as well.
The clinic maintains a fairly up-to-date library of reference materials as well as utilizing on-line resources. We hold informal rounds at the end of each day
Students will be expected to be present during business hours from 8AM until 5PM (or longer depending on emergency cases). They will be required to evaluate patients, form treatment plans, participate (scrub-in) in surgery, and practice client communications (obviously with veterinary oversight!)
Students will have access at all times to one or more veterinarians on staff. (9 hours per day on Mondays through Fridays, and 8 until noon on Saturdays, as well as during any emergency cases seen "after hours")
No, but low cost hotels within a few miles of clinic
