expect student interns to assist equine veterinarians on their daily
farm calls. They will get first hand experience in the field and will
be able to observe the veterinarian interacting with clients and
patients. They will also participate in any diagnostic work ups and
treatments/procedures through direct discussion with the attending
veterinarian. We have veterinary technicians along on every call to
handle and restrain horses, do the paper work and stock the trucks.
This leaves the student intern free to participate during the call.
Reata strives to provide a positive experience for each intern that
visits our practice.

dressed during business hours (8:30-5:30). They will accompany the
veterinarian on their daily rounds and the veterinarian will be
available for discussion during calls if appropriate and between calls.
The intern is not expected to restrain horses or do any stocking of the
vehicles. Depending on the judgment of the attending veterinarian, a
student intern may be asked to assist during a procedure or treatment.
student intern will have total access to the attending veterinarian
that he/she is assigned to ride with. If the student intern wishes to
be available to accompany the on call veterinarian of after hours calls
then the student must make that known to the on call veterinarian.
