Stonyridge Veterinary Service, Inc.

Two
week externship in a general small animal practice setting. We see
medical and surgical cases of a wide variety. We also see a smattering
of exotics and pocket pets, and Dr. Eisenberg does occasional farm
calls. The extern would be able to see patients with direct DVM
supervision, both in the exam room and as inpatients (medical and
surgical). This should be a chance for the extern to polish exam and
communication skills and to gain some experience with sedation,
anesthesia, general surgery and radiology.
No institutional resources on staff - we do refer cases to specialists.
Relatively
complete small library, journals and internet access. We also have
Idexx consultation specialists available by phone.
  • Participate
    in a schedule of office calls and surgery that will afford a full
    spectrum of experiences.
  • Be available for emergency calls that would be
    of value as learning experiences (C-sections, traumas, etc.).
  • Maintain
    client and patient confidentiality. Keep appropriate records and
    utilize support staff appropriately.
I'm
not sure I understand what direct and free access entails - my
expectation is that the extern will be participating with the
veterinarian in the usual business of the clinic. This will be at least
40 hours per week, although more is available if the student wishes.
There will be some time for discussion outside of practice time -
probably 3-5 hours per week.
