December 2016

Surgery Checklist

Overview of Program

The CAPNA Mentorship Program has been developed to assist young veterinarians with the transition to private practice veterinary medicine during their first year at a CAPNA hospital.
In an effort to take advantage of the unique design of CAPNA, and the many talented veterinarians spread across the country, the CAPNA Mentorship Program was designed to have 2 components:
    • Local / On-site Mentor:  A more time-intensive, hands-on mentor adhering to a more structured program.  Designed to be a senior veterinarian present at the workplace alongside the mentee.

    • Long-Distance / Offsite Mentor:  A more casual mentor, available by phone for advice / assistance without a structured curriculum.  The Long Distance mentors will be volunteers from other CAPNA hospitals, assigned by a “Long Distance Mentor Coordinator” at CAPNA from a pool of volunteers.  It is believed that this resource could provide new graduates with an opportunity to discuss situations in a confidential manner that may be uncomfortable to discuss with their local / on-site mentor

Although a hospital is more than welcome to use only one of the above mentoring services, the program has been developed with the use of BOTH local and long-distance mentorship for each mentee in mind.

We would like to direct interested parties to our website at www.capna.com and our Veterinary Mentorships can be found under our Opportunities tab.

Job Type: Internship

The DVM internship/mentorship program at Tulare Veterinary Hospital is a 6 to 12 month program. The first four weeks of the internship will include a mentorship period where your mentor will provide meaningful learning experiences and opportunities for professional development.  Our mentorship program covers topics such as communication, physical exam skills, surgical skills, medical records and clinical reasoning.  After the mentorship period, there will be a senior clinician on staff, however we highly encourage our interns to test their veterinary knowledge to develop their client communication skills by handling their own cases. Medical and surgical skills will be taught, and practiced.  These skills include, but are not limited to: suturing , closing incisions, spays and neuters with or without assistance - as appropriate, wound evaluation, surgical repair of wounds, drain placement, antibiotic selection, pain management and follow up.  Students will assist and evaluate more invasive surgeries. We offer a Monday through Friday schedule with little to no weekend hours. Internships are salaried positions with paid CE.  A small furnished bedroom located at the hospital is provided. The goal of the mentorship/internship is to increase skill and confidence so that the student can evaluate and
treat simple and more challenging cases with success and confidence.

We strongly encourage any applicant to the internship program to spend at least two weeks visiting the hospital.
