Student/Extern Opportunities

intern surgery

Carolina Equine Hospital provides both general and secondary level care to horses in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina.  All doctors and staff in our practice have a strong commitment to the education and mentoring of students and externs.  We will provide students with a wide variety of equine experiences in a progressive and positive private practice setting.

Our caseload encompasses a wide variety of English sport and Western disciplines as well as pleasure horses.  We see approximately 30% sports medicine, 20% reproductive, 30% preventative medicine and dentistry and 20 % internal medicine/ophtho/neonatal.

The practice sees routine appointments during the week and only emergencies during the weekend.  A significant lameness caseload is seen throughout the year.  Spring is the busiest season with new foals and reproductive work (AI, shipped semen, ET).

Individuals with an interest in applying for a studentship (high-school or undergraduate students), externship (veterinary students) should complete the online interest form.
