The externship program at the Equine Specialty Hospital is designed for third and fourth year veterinary students who wish to gain more experience in a private practice referral setting. We encourage students to commit 2-4 weeks to their experience. The first week emphasizes orientation and training but students will have an active, hands-on externship from the beginning. Students will be assigned to a specialist for each week of their stay. This may vary pending the case load of each specialist, and the interests of the student (surgery vs. medicine). Professional attire is required, and consists of a collared shirt, khaki pants, and appropriate footwear, all in good condition. Scrubs are not provided.
A $50 stipend is provided per week. Please note that there are no restaurants or shopping venues within walking distance. A 2-bedroom apartment with a private bath and small kitchen including toaster oven and microwave is provided on-site. The apartment is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Laundry facilities are also available on-site. Bed linens will be provided, but students should bring their own towels, etc. Facilities for pets are not available. Since students are staying on the property, they are expected to participate in all after-hours emergencies.
