Our externship offers a great opportunity for veterinary students to gain knowledge and experience in all fields of equine practice. The externship is considered very hands-on, especially during breeding season. Our externships usually last between 2-4 weeks for the best experience. We are open to shorter or longer stays if our schedule allows. We offer onsite housing for externs. If you are possibly interested in our internship program, scheduling an externship is a great way to get to know the clinic and staff.
To schedule a visit or an externship please send an e-mail to Dr. Bridget Mason at email@example.com. Students are required to have completed at least 1 year of vet school and must have proof of professional liability insurance through their school or AVMA-PLIT.
On site housing for externs is available.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions about our externship or internship positions.
