Rotating Internship; focus on ECC

Emergency & Critical Care Rotating Internship

Why not work and train with the best team in veterinary medicine? 1st Pet Veterinary Centers encompass 3 hospitals in the metro-Phoenix area, including the 2016 Veterinary Economics Hospital of the Year. We focus on providing the absolute best patient care and client service. Working in a collaborative environment with the tools you need to take great care of your patients and clients will help you excel in your veterinary career! We have decided to take our program outside of the match this year, but have had 3 very successful intern classes. The specialists providing support for the program are experienced in training interns and residents in both university and large private practice settings. The emergency and general practice doctors enjoy mentoring new veterinarians. We are interested in helping you attain your veterinary goals, whatever they may be.

As a team doctor you will enjoy working with knowledgeable and highly skilled technicians, having all of your radiographs read by Radiologists, and access to state of the art equipment (including full in-house laboratory, 8 slice CT scan, ultrasound, endoscopy, enteral and parenteral nutrition, advanced analgesia, and mechanical ventilation). Interns will experience a diverse caseload, and have both direct and indirect case management, including opportunities for emergency and general practice surgery. Experienced emergency doctors and specialists will provide assistance and advice whenever the intern is scheduled for primary emergency duty.

Interns will rotate through the emergency & critical care (26 wks), general practice (6 wks), internal medicine (6 wks), and surgery services (6 wks). They will also have 7 weeks of additional out-rotations with boarded specialists off-site. Options for out-rotations include ophthalmology, oncology, clinical pathology, dentistry, cardiology, and dermatology. The majority of time will be spent at the Chandler location, but emergency shifts at the Mesa and North Phoenix location are also included.

Successful candidates will have a passion for learning, teaching and practicing the highest caliber medicine, play well with others, and understand the value of client communication and service. A demonstration of a desire to learn emergency medicine & pathophysiology, a compelling personal statement, academic record, phone interview, and letters of recommendation attesting to excellent work ethic will be used for ranking and selection.
