Applications are due OCTOBER 1 for the upcoming year.
In veterinary medicine, an internship refers to a one-year position for a licensed, recently graduated veterinarian. This section pertains to those people that are interested in such an internship with ECO.
The goal of the ECO internship is to provide valuable practical experience in high quality equine ambulatory medicine while giving the ECO intern the support they need to gain knowledge and confidence. Our ultimate goal is for our intern to make a well-informed and thoughtful decision on how they wish to practice Veterinary Medicine after they leave ECO. Our intern is presented with a variety of opportunities. First and foremost is the many different personalities of our doctors. While this could be daunting, we see this as an opportunity for the inters to interact with and learn from a variety of different approaches that end in a single outcome.
Through cooperating owners, the ECO intern is able to do many practical procedures such as dentistry, joint injections, rectal examinations, ultrasounds and simple surgeries. Our intern is also expected to interact with and educate horse owners through our client education programs held throughout the year.
The intern also serves as our “hospitalist” providing care, oversight, and treatment for cases hospitalized in our clinic. The intern’s an integral part of the foaling team, and will have the opportunity to attend several foalings. By being a part of our emergency services, under the supervision of one of our doctors, the intern has the opportunity to learn from these sometimes stressful but rewarding opportunities. The entire ECO team takes pride in mentoring our intern, and we maintain close relationships with all interns long after they leave us.
Only complete applications will be considered for our internship positions. All applications and required items must be received by Stacy Anatriello by October 1st for a July 1st start date the following year. A complete application includes:
- The internship application: Internship Application
- Three letters of recommendation
Internships begin July 1st and are twelve-month positions, unless adjusted by management. This will be discussed with the incoming interns after selection. ECO prefers to accept their interns from the pool of externs that have visited ECO and applied for the internship. While this is not always the case, those applicants will have an advantage. The internships will be filled as soon as possible but no earlier than October 1. Student members of the AAEP can see our avenues internship listing at www.aaep.org.
