This ECC internship allows the intern to be immersed in emergency medicine within the first week by being the primary clinician seeing a wide range of emergencies. The intern is always scheduled on shift with a senior clinician dedicated to mentoring and ensuring your success while allowing the intern to be the primary clinician.
The intern will also be supervised in surgery with the goal to have them competent in emergency soft tissue surgeries such as C-sections, pyometra, gastronomy, enterotomy, gastropexy, and splenectomy.
The intern will complete an orientation program in Austin, Texas with other members of ER Academy around the country that includes FASTVet point of care ultrasound training. They will also have a week rotation in Fort Collins, CO with paid travel for additional training on endoscopy foreign body retrieval, surgical techniques and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. An additional week-long rotation is provided at the Animal Imaging and Neurology Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ or Austin, TX. Group learning with all clinicians includes journal club, topic, case based, exotic and morbidity and mortality rounds that are held monthly.
By the end of the internship year, we expect the intern will be well-versed in most ECC presentations, and be proficient in typical ECC skills, procedures, and surgeries. At completion of the internship, the intern will be highly marketable and capable of comfortably going into any emergency veterinary facility with the tools to succeed.
