One of our interns had to head back home due to medical issues. Looking for a replacement to start immediately.
The Internship program at San Luis Rey Equine Hospital is a demanding one, as the caseload is high and many of the patients require intensive care and monitoring. The interns play an integral role at SLREH and the senior clinicians largely depend on their assistance to manage each case. Interns rotate through the following services: Sports Medicine & Lameness, Surgery, Internal Medicine, Anesthesia, and Internal Medicine.
The large volume and diversity of cases seen at the clinic provide opportunity for substantial advancement of skill set and knowledge base for each intern. Dedicated interns at SLREH will gain experience becoming competent and proficient with a multitude of different emergency, surgery, sports medicine & rehabilitation, imaging, and internal medicine skills. The internship fully prepares each individual for a career in private practice or for a residency position. Interns are exposed to an elite sports medicine ambulatory practice, and a large rehabilitation and conditioning center, as part of their internship experience.
