Describe veterinary services your clinic provides:
The clinic is a mixed practice, in that there are five small animal veterinarians and one large animal veterinarian. There would likely be the opportunity to split one’s time between veterinarians if a mixed animal externship is preferred. The large animal vet, Magdi Niedermeyer, provides ambulatory medicine for horses, cattle, small ruminants, camelids, and swine. Her services include routine and preventative care, reproductive surgery, obstetrics, and general herd/individual health. While there is a clinic setting and some patient appointments are done there, we do not hospitalize patients overnight.

Externship Description:
This externship opportunity is not rigidly structured, but we would begin by providing the student with the opportunity to discuss what they want to focus on. The practice sees a fairly mixed bag of clientele and species (in terms diversity of cases); if you are looking specifically for sport equine medicine or bovine production medicine, this may not be the externship you are looking for, as there is a marked amount of variety in cases year-round. The months of December and January are quieter and would be less fruitful in terms of caseload. If you are interested in obstetrics, the spring is the best and busiest time of year for hands-on experience.
Goal of Externship:
The goal of this externship is to allow students to get practical, and realistic mixed large animal experience in an ambulatory setting. The student will have the opportunity to discuss cases and expand/solidify their knowledge of general medical preventative care as well as common diseases for these species as well. Expectations are not rigid; the student would ideally be interactive and willing to participate in very informal didactic discussions. Otherwise, this externship can be what you make of it.
