We are a very busy 95% dog and cat, 5% rabbit/pocket pet practise in a new facility with an excellent staff and a great reputation. We can provide a wide variety of medical and surgical cases to enhance your clinical exposure at a somewhat accelerated pace compared to your 4th year experience.
Associate Veterinarians and special expertise available
We have 3 veterinarians on staff ranging from 20, 11, and 2 years experience. We provide an excellent support staff, and facility with many of the cool diagnostic tools, current texts, and computer based reference materials available to us. We also have several specailist who visit ! our practice as needed to consult on more difficult cases.
We will provide all of our reference materials to the candidate to enhance their clinical experience, and further their understanding of the disease process and treatment options. We encourage continued education when opportunity becomes available.
We have developed operating procedures for 3, 4 and 6 week externships. The candidate will be expected to accompany each clinician for 1 week in the medical, surgical and emergency cases seen. By the end of the experience, we will expect the candidate to define the clinical symptoms and systems that are effected, suggest diagnostic tests for the differential diagnosis, and treatment options for the case.
The candidate will be assigned to a clinician for each week of the externship, and will work the clinicians hours. 4.5 days per week, approximately 40-50 hours weekly.
