Peninsula Equine is a state of the art, full service equine veterinary hospital and ambulatory practice which offers diagnostic and surgical abilities, located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This elective is organized through the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Avenues Internships/Externships Program for veterinary students. The AAEP Avenues program is an excellent resource for AAEP national student members to find that perfect position. The AAEP Avenues program is designed to encourage current veterinary students and new graduates to take advantage of the practical training in medicine and practice management offered by AAEP-member practices. Externships and internships allow students and new veterinarians to learn and perfect technical and client skills. Practices benefit from the enthusiastic participation of the extern or intern, as well as their access to recent clinical information and new ideas.
