Internship Program

The Austin Equine Internship is designed to further the education of recent veterinary graduates by exposing them to a large volume of diverse cases thus allowing individuals to develop proficient skills and confidence to excel in equine medicine. We strive to provide the highest quality of care for our patients and clients, while maintaining a friendly work environment. We consider the internship program as an integral part of our practice and look forward to providing the mentorship needed to develop the skills required to advance as an equine veterinarian.

Externship Program

Austin Equine’s externships are year-round for veterinary students regardless of class year. We encourage a minimum two-week commitment and we generally accommodate one student per externship, although two students are occasionally permitted. The externship program is very hands-on, and requires interactive participation. Externs are expected to assist with morning treatment, and observe and participate in all daily cases seen. Fourth year students on official externships are expected to help with after-hours emergency cases as needed. All students will be expected to take part in daily case rounds. The annual caseload is 6000–8000 cases and the average caseload per veterinarian is 100-150 per week. Austin Equine is an equine-only practice. Our veterinarian staff includes a board certified surgeon and doctors who focus on lameness, advanced dentistry, and theriogenology. Transportation is provided to and from the airport. Automobile use at the clinic can be provided for students who possess a current driver’s license. Modest, comfortable, on-site housing is provided.
