Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Internship
Internships are designed to provide one year of intense, post-DVM, clinical training in small animal medicine and surgery.
The Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences has a single document that describes the medicine and surgery internship program (PDF) in detail.
Small Animal Residencies
Residencies are designed to provide 3-4 years of advanced, in-depth training in specific disciplines in preparation for certification examination by appropriate specialty boards within the veterinary profession. Most residents will enroll in the Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences (BMVS) Graduate Program and complete a graduate degree (MS or PhD).
The Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences has a single, generic residency program description that sets forth a basic program description. Supplemental to the generic document, each discipline provides a specific program description unique to that discipline.
