RBVH Offers Veterinary Internship & Vet Business Internship
RBVH is pleased to offer two internship programs: a veterinary internship and a veterinary business management internship.
RBVH participates in the Veterinary Internship and Residency Matching Program (VIRMP) of the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians for our annual internship program. This enables us to recruit top graduate veterinarians from the United States and Canada who desire advanced training in veterinary medicine. Many of our interns pursue further training in specialized residency programs after completing our year-long internship.
To disseminate consistent and accurate information to all candidates, we host Intern Orientations. A hospital tour and meetings with various hospital personnel allows candidates the opportunity to view our hospital for a better understanding of the work environment. Candidates also meet with members of the current intern class for uncensored discussions on life as an RBVH intern. One-on-one interviews with each candidate are conducted during the orientations.
Starting with the 2011–2012 year, we expanded our program to include internship rotations throughout the RBVH Veterinary Healthcare Network.
RBVH was the first hospital in the country to offer a business management internship (2011–2012), dividing the student’s time between small animal medicine (75%) and management (25%).
This unique one-year rotating internship enables the veterinarian to rotate through specialty services and participate in daily hospital rounds, journal club, and lectures. In addition, the intern is assigned dedicated time to work with the various management teams throughout the RBVH network, gaining valuable veterinary management and leadership experience. Strengthen clinical skills while gaining experience in critical thinking and problem solving that will assist in leading and managing a successful veterinary hospital.
