Large Animal Veterinary Medicine and Surgery Internship
Utah State University School of Veterinary Medicine is seeking a veterinary intern in large animal
medicine and surgery. This program is designed for new graduates pursuing additional training in preparation for private practice. We are home to approximately 180 dairy cows, 60 horses, 450 small ruminants and 250 beef cattle. The considerable animal population produces a consistent caseload of approximately 40% dairy, 30% equine, 20% small ruminant and 10% beef. Services are provided both on the farm and at the Animal Teaching and Research Center where a large animal veterinary clinic including surgical facilities is located. Our veterinary service also provides reproductive and research support in all species which includes surgical procedures. The majority of the dairy caseload is provided care onsite at the Caine Dairy Teaching and Research Center. At the dairy, cows are housed in free stall housing with research tie stalls and a double eight herring bone milking parlor. The majority of the equine caseload is seen at the new state of the art Equine Education Center and consists predominantly of reproduction, lameness and preventative care. The Equine Education Center encompasses 26 acres, an indoor arena and several barns including a stallion barn for breeding work. The primary responsibility of the intern will be to assist clinicians in the daily care of all species while assessing and treating cases on an ongoing and emergency basis.
A unique feature of this internship will be the opportunity for the intern to self-identify and perform
certain skills on an elective basis as the animals under our care are university owned. On occasion, bovine
embryo transfer is performed on client owned animals and the intern may be invited to participate. Additionally, the intern may be requested to assist in the instruction of laboratory courses related to the animal science and veterinary curriculum and may also have an opportunity to audit courses of interest. The objective of the intern will be to develop clinical maturity and proficiency. Upon completion of this internship the intern will be well prepared to entire private practice. Candidates for this position will be selected based on career objectives, letters of recommendation, interpersonal skills, clinical skills and pertinent experience.
Salary: $30,000, plus an allowance for continuing education
Dates: 6/1/2016 - 5/31/2017, with the option of an additional year and salary increase
Vacation: vacation and time to attend one educational meeting are allowed
Non-compete: none required
State License: none required
DEA License: none required
USDA Accreditation: none required
Clinical Experience and Responsibilities
The intern will have primary case responsibility under direct supervision for first opinion and
emergency/critical care cases. Direct supervision will lessen concomitant with demonstrated clinical
proficiency. The intern will participate in surgeries as an assistant or primary surgeon as appropriate for each
case/procedure. The intern may be requested to deliver a case based professional presentation to veterinary students and faculty.
Facilities and Equipment
Many large animal cases are seen on the farm. When circumstances dictate, cases are evaluated and treated in the Large Animal Clinic in which there are stocks, chutes and surgical accommodations. Digital radiography, ultrasound, anesthesia equipment and monitoring are available. The Utah Veterinary Diagnostic Lab is on campus for additional diagnostic testing as needed. A stocked ambulatory vehicle will be provided.
Scheduling:The majority of cases are seen weekdays between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm. The intern is expected to be available for emergencies at all times during regular business hours.
