Intern & Externship Programs

Pilchuck offers both externship and internship programs for veterinary students and graduates.

Equine Externship

Large Animal Hospital East View Equine externships lasting two to three weeks are available to students who have completed two years of veterinary school. Externships are designed to provide hands-on experience in large animal medicine and surgery to students interested in pursuing an internship after graduation, and those seeking experience in a private practice setting. Applications for externships are accepted year round. Summer months fill up fastest. Please email Extern@pilchuckvet.com

Equine Internship

Each year, we accept one to three DVM graduates for year-long equine internships. As part of the hospital team, interns gain valuable experience in state of the art equine care, preparing them to enter private practice or a residency program. Through hands-on experience, interns gain confidence with diagnostic and therapeutic techniques essential to the equine practitioner, and share in a learning environment where we all benefit from each other’s expertise to provide the highest quality of care to our patients. Please contact Wendy Harless Mollat, DVM, DACVIM @ 360.568.3111.

For more information on both programs please visit the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) web site www.aaep.org, and under Students/Avenues.  Here you will find up-to-date information about our internship and externship opportunities.
