Veterinary Clinical Sciences

Internship and Residency Programs

The department offers graduate professional programs (internships and residencies). Internships are one-year post-DVM clinical programs in small or large animal medicine and surgery.

Internships are designed in part to prepare students for residencies or graduate academic programs. Currently internships are offered in small animal medicine and surgery rotating, equine internal medicine and surgery rotating, theriogenology, food animal medicine and surgery, zoological medicine, and diagnostic imaging.

Residencies are three-year clinical programs in various disciplines designed in part to prepare for specialty board certification. Currently, residencies are offered in small animal surgery, small animal internal medicine, equine internal medicine, equine surgery, food animal medicine and surgery, ophthalmology, and theriogenology. Graduate academic programs may be available in association with residencies.
