Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital

Description

Externs have the opportunity to work with doctors in the field and on hospitalized cases.  The majority of what we see are equine cases, but we also see small ruminants, pigs and occasionally cattle and camelids.

Educational Resources

  • We have daily morning rounds and monthly journal club rounds.  We also have bookshelves full of text books that externs can access if they would like.
  • We have 4 board certified large animal surgeons, one board certified large animal internal medicine specialist and three general practice clinicians.

Responsibilities

Students are expected to participate in the work up of cases, come in for emergency cases and come to rounds.  Students are expected to help the interns with morning treatments and IV catheter placements.

Student Supervision:  Students are supervised directly duing business hours (M-F 8am-5pm) and on weekends and overnight as emergencies come in.

10-12 hours/day, 6-7 days/week
