Externships for Veterinary Students

Over the past several years, GVEC has hosted students from many different veterinary schools in the United States, Canada, and Europe. We suggest two weeks as a minimum stay to get a real feel for equine ambulatory practice. Generally our busier months are from March until September. Long days with lots of road time allow students to inquire about cases, business practices, practice ownership, time management, and other aspects of equine practice. Externs can expect to see a heavy caseload of breeding work and neonatology from March to mid-July. Lameness work ups, prepurchase examinations, in depth ophthamology, dentistry, preventative medicine and diagnostic imaging are done year round. Most externs will leave having seen a variety of urgent care situations such as colic, choke, laceration repair, fever, and corneal ulceration. Students are welcome to stay in our lounge while they are with us. A futon, microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, kitchen supplies, and linens are available. Other housing options can be arranged on an as needed basis.

If you are interested in learning more about our externship, please call the clinic at (585) 889-1170 to request a student information packet and application. You can also e-mail Laura Johnson, our student liason, directly at studentinfo@gvequine.com . Please give us your current mailing and e-mail addresses. Our receptionists are available between 8 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday.
