Average student review (out of five): 
Small animal specialty and referral practice
We tailor the experience to the students' interests. Options are available for spending time with one specific service vs multiple specialties.
We currently have 32 doctors on staff including interns (small animal rotating, small animal emergency/critical care, exotics), residents (emergency/critical care, internal medicine), internship trained associates (working in anesthesia, emergency/critical care). We also have the following specialty services supported by board certified and board eligible doctors: Emergency/critical care, internal medicine, medical oncology, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging (including ultrasound, CT, and MRI on site), ophthalmology, surgery, neurology/neurosurgery, physical therapy/rehabilitiation, and exotics
Journals, books, internet access, daily rounds, didactic teaching seminars, journal club
In general, we expect them to attend daily morning rounds and seminars, come to work with an eager and engaging attitude for learning, and follow through on any tasks assigned (follow up reading on a patient, for example). More specific responsibilities are directed toward the students' interest for how they spend their time here and the interactions with clinicians with those specific services
We have doctors on site and available 24/7/365
