Veterinary Internship Program
Rainbow Equine Hospital offers an 18-month internship program. There are four interns who live on site 365 days a year. The internship program is open to all new and recently graduated veterinary applicants but in the first instance we would encourage any prospective applicants to visit the hospital as part of our externship program prior to applying.
Our internship program has served as the pathway for progression into first opinion equine ambulatory practice, specialist racehorse practice at home and abroad, as well as residencies in equine surgery, diagnostic imaging, and internal medicine specialities.
We encourage and expect all our interns to complete and publish a first author research paper or case report, we will provide ample resources and mentoring throughout to support this.
INTERNSHIP: The 18-month internship position will start 1st February 2024 at Rainbow Equine Hospital. Open to MRCVS registered veterinary surgeons, including new graduates, with equine experience.
The successful applicant will undergo a rotating discipline internship as part of a four-person internship team. The disciplines are anaesthesia, lameness and poor performance, intensive care, and elective hospital cases. The internship is a robust and practical internship in which you are working as part of a busy team seeing in emergencies, maintaining client communication, and ensuring a high standard of care for hospitalised patients. To be able to work as part of a team is essential.
