Internship Program – Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital

 Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital (RREH) veterinary internship program was established in 1986.  Our Lexington ambulatory internship program began in 1998.  Additionally, our Saratoga Springs practice started an internship program in 2013 and our Wellington practice in 2017.   The Lexington practice currently offers 8 hospital focused and 5 ambulatory internships. In addition, RREH in Saratoga offers 3 hospital focused internship positions and RREH in Wellington offers 2 hospital focused internship positions. The internship positions are intended to provide each intern with the foundation they need to confidently enter private practice or pursue further training in a residency program. The interns are encouraged to participate in retrospective studies based on the RREH caseload.  Many interns have presented the results of these studies at the AAEP, ACVS, ACVIM and SFT symposiums and other national meetings. Those who have completed our internship program are welcome back to fulfill parts of their specialty board requirements at RREH if needed. What Our Interns DoHospital Interns The hospital interns rotate in two week blocks through the surgery, medicine, and anesthesia services. Primary responsibilities will include diagnostics and care of hospital patients, emergency duty, anesthesia, imaging, assisting with lameness exams, and assisting with surgery and medicine procedures. Opportunities are available to participate in other services within the Rood and Riddle hospital family.    The hospital intern is considered to be an integral part of the functioning of the hospital.  An unparalleled exposure to referral level practice is provided. Ambulatory Interns The ambulatory interns work primarily with a senior ambulatory mentor, but assist and shadow other practitioners. The ambulatory interns provide herd health to our ambulatory clients as well as help with reproductive evaluations and treatments, neonatal and foal evaluation and treatment, lameness and pre-purchase exams, sales radiographs and evaluations. Interns are involved with our emergency service and rotate on emergency duty for the ambulatory practice. Opportunities to follow field cases into the hospital are always available, and interns are encouraged to work with clinicians in their areas of interest.  The ambulatory internship is designed to expose the intern to a large and variable caseload with the goal of establishing solid diagnostic skills and critical thinking in a field setting.  Exposure to the large group of experienced clinicians in all equine disciplines will facilitate a broader knowledge base and serve as a resource and referral base in the future. Worldwide Recognition Since the internship program commenced, 298 veterinarians have completed the program as of this update (December 2017).  Our interns have been a diverse group, having come from nearly every veterinary school in the United States, 5 veterinary schools in Canada and the Caribbean and from 13 other foreign veterinary schools. Following the Rood & Riddle experience, our interns have contributed to equine veterinary medicine by filling positions in private practice, universities, industry and the military.  Many interns have pursued residency training and become board certified specialists. RREH intern alumni have earned diplomate status from 9 AVMA specialty colleges and one European specialty college. A total of 90 previous interns have passed a specialty board exam, with 18 passing more than one exam.  This includes the following specialty colleges with number of board certified intern alumni:     ACVS – 60    ACVIM – 17    ACVECC – 7    ACVSMR – 6    ACT – 5     ACVR – 4    ABVP – 2    ACVA – 2    ACVO – 3    ECVS – 3 Recommended by Our Past Interns When asked if they would recommend the internship to others with similar career goals, 90% of our former interns in a recent survey listed a positive or strongly positive response. When asked whether the internship was consistent with its description on the RREH website a 96% positive or strongly positively response was received.The results of this survey support the goals and intent of our internship programs. The experiences gained during the first year out of school provide an important foundation upon which to build your career. Contact information for our past interns can be provided upon request. Benefits Internships are salaried positions with benefits including health insurance, professional liability insurance, one week paid vacation and expenses paid for one approved veterinary conference.  How to Apply Internships are for one year and run from June to June. Applications are accepted in the fall of each year. Application deadline falls in October for internships beginning the following year in May/June.
