What are you looking for in an internship?

At Tryon Equine we offer a wide variety of exposure to different caseloads to include surgery, sport horse lameness, internal medicine and ambulatory cases that will help further our interns’ expertise in the areas of equine veterinary medicine they wish to pursue in their careers.

We offer on-site housing and didactic training including weekly journal club presentation / discussion and case presentation as an important component of the training program.

Our interns are considered very important members of our team. We offer a wonderful support staff as well as mentorship through our owners and associates.

Overview of Internship Duties: Our interns are responsible for hospitalized patients, intensive care cases, treatments, health records and daily examinations. Interns will also be responsible for anesthesia duties and working with our veterinarians on imaging, surgery, lameness, medicine, and reproductive examinations. Each day, interns will evaluate each case with one of our senior clinicians to make a daily plan for treatment. During ambulatory rotations, interns will work with senior clinicians assessing and treating patients on farms. As the internship and intern’s skill set progresses, there will be opportunity for seeing cases autonomously with senior clinician support.

About Us: Tryon Equine is a full service referral and performance horse hospital with a strong field service and horse show component. In the hospital we have Board Certified Specialists in Surgery and Medicine. Services offered include MRI, digital radiography, digital ultrasonography including cardiology, neurologic evaluations including myelography, Neonatal Intensive care, Isolation facility, and full surgical and regenerative medicine services. As the official vets for the Tryon International Equestrian Center, Tryon Equine offers a variety of sport horse case experience. Tryon Equine also works closely with a full service Aquatred rehab center next door on a daily basis.
