Doral Centre Animal Hospital (DCAH) accepts students enrolled in their senior years of veterinary school for rotations of two to four weeks in length to fulfill externship requirements. Our objective is to educate veterinary student externs while maintaining exceptional, compassionate patient care, as well as excellent communication and service to our clients and referring veterinarians. Our senior clinician is designated as a mentor to the student. However, students are expected to be involved in cases with all clinicians from our hospital. This is a 40-hours-per-week commitment. Externs must be eligible to work in the United States. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and positions are available throughout the year.
Participants in the externship program experience a typical caseload of a small animal emergency practice. Our hospital focuses on general wellness and emergency critical care on small animals. Emergency overnight shifts are optional and can be accommodated upon request. Under the supervision of our senior clinician, you will gather patient histories, perform complete physical exams, develop diagnostic and therapeutic plans, scrub in to surgery, assist in the medical management of medical cases, provide wellness care, develop client communication skills, and polish your clinical and technical skills.
