The Internship is a 12 month intensive full time professional (clinical) formative program aiming to help the Intern to develop capacity to identify and solve medical problems within the disciplines, the ability to work-up a case with medical written and oral expression skills, and to teach non graduated students the elements of day one skills as described in the DVM program.


The ultimate aim of the Internship is to prepare the Intern to enter a specialty college qualifying (residency) program or to prepare to enter a high standard level of equine general practice.

The intern will rotate through first opinion, medicine, surgery, anaesthesiology and theriogenology in a formative program.

The intern will present a seminar and contribute to a research project during the 12 months. At the commencement of the program interns will be provided with a mentor to assist with meeting the objectives and expectations of the internship.
