Thank you for your interest in our externship program at Wright Veterinary Medical Center. The intention of this page is to provide you with some basic information about your time with us. We accept a maximum of two students at a time and you must be at the college level with an interest in veterinary medicine. There is no requirement on the length of your internship. However, if a recommendation or assessment is requested we require at least seven days be spent shadowing one of our doctors. These days do not have to be consecutive.
Please see the availability below. Once you have selected your dates please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org attention Dr. Susan Speak. Please include a cover letter and CV/Resume that details your experience and interest in veterinary medicine. Once you are on our schedule, Dr. Speak or an assistant will email you to confirm and provide further details.
What to expect: Your mornings will begin at 9AM where you will run appointments with your assigned veterinarian. These appointments range from wellness visits to sick appointments with a wide range of species including cats, dogs, pocket pets, reptiles, and sometimes even wildlife! At noon, you will attend rounds where in-hospital cases are discussed among all the doctors. Feel free to ask questions or provide suggestions during the round discussions. Appointments start again at 1PM but you are welcome to take lunch at whatever time works best for you. Your day officially ends at 5PM (there are appointments running until 9PM so you can stay as long as you would like).
What we expect: We expect you to have an interest in small animal general practice, a professional attitude, and a willingness to learn. Importantly, we also hope you have lots of fun!
What to bring/wear: Please bring your own lunch. Occasionally there are educational meetings that you are welcome to attend and have a nice meal. You may also wish to bring your own stethoscope. Please wear business casual attire, closed-toe/non-heeled shoes and bring a pair of scrubs in case we go into surgery.
Accommodations: We do not have housing on-site However, it may be possible to be hosted by one of our doctors or employees here. You can also try searching on Externship Housing Locator, a closed group on Facebook.
