Equine Intern- Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital

Veterinarian - Intern Snohomish, Washington


Position at Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital

Equine Referral Hospital and Ambulatory Internship

Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital is currently looking for a third intern to join our practice. Candidate would join a team of two interns that have started their internship in June 2021. Duration of program is flexible with the goal of starting as soon as a candidate is matched until the next group of interns come onboard in 2022. This is the perfect position for someone that has been deciding whether, or not an internship is right fit for them based on the shorter commitment than a full year program.

Position is for a rotating internship between hospital and ambulatory work. Mentorship would come from boarded surgeons, internist, and veterinarians that have extensive experience in working closely with interns for case management. The goal of our internship program is to provide knowledge and confidence for our interns to join private practice or a residency program. Interns will be fully competent to address aspects of patient care at an either primary role, or with indirect supervision. As with any internship a clinician is always available to provide assistance.

Our hospital facility has 24/7 onsite trained technical staff to provide added support allowing interns to focus on patient care, clinical skills, and diagnostics. Case load consists mostly of equine patients with occasional small ruminants and camelids. After hours on call schedule is split among interns with pre-determined weekend time off.

The PVH equine referral hospital is housed in a facility that includes two full surgical suites with pillow recovery systems, a standing procedure/surgery room, a reference-quality laboratory, a covered lameness evaluation arena, and several treatment areas. The main barn has stall space for 15 in-patients with an additional 3 climate-controlled ICU stalls and a 4-stall isolation facility. The hospital is well equipped with two SurgiVet anesthesia machines with ventilators, complete anesthesia monitoring equipment, extracorporeal shock wave, digital radiology, digital ultrasound, 600 mA conventional radiology, arthroscopy, laparoscopy, ASIF bone plating instruments, PRP, IRAP, Pro-Stride, and a 0.3 Tesla MRI. Clients also have access to acupuncture, chiropractic and Chinese herbal medicine through our integrative medicine and rehabilitation center. We offer the services of clinical pathology, cardiology, ophthalmology, and radiology on a consultation basis with board-certified specialists.

Interns are provided with a generous compensation and benefits package which includes medical, dental and vision insurance, continuing education allowance, one week paid vacation, and paid exam and license fees (including AAEP).  Interns must obtain Washington licensure.

Pool of applicants is a rolling application until the right candidate is matched with the program.
