We offer a 1 year Equine Internship, please visit our equine website for more details.


Equine Internship

Internship Application

The goal of our internship is to provide you with a quality experience which balances in-hospital, ambulatory and academic veterinary medicine. You will have the experience and knowledge to begin a residency program or a career in private equine ambulatory practice upon successful completion of the program. The internship is an intensive training program that will provide the intern with an equivalent of approximately 5 years worth of private practice experience.

Obtaining an internship is an honor, you should be willing to make this internship your focus for the next year, giving it your complete attention. This means long hours and hard work, but this is a very fruitful program.  You will acquire knowledge through diligent research on the cases that come through the hospital and out in the field.  We will provide you with guidance and active training so you can leave Chaparral Veterinary Medical Center prepared for either a residency or private practice.
