Interns typically work a 4 day work week and are on call one day a week. Staff veterinarians are scheduled alongside of the interns and a critical care specialist overlaps the majority of daytime shifts. The interns experience one week rotations in surgery, radiology, and internal medicine. Primary surgical experience is gained mostly through procedures performed in the ER. Additional experience is gained throughout the year while doing on-call shifts and assisting the boarded surgeons.
