VSH is excited to offer clinical surgical externships lasting 1 to 4 weeks. Visiting veterinary students and veterinarians will work directly with our team of board-certified surgeons, residents, interns, nurses, specialty and ER teams to provide high-quality collaborative care for our patients and clients. Externs will participate in daily patient rounds, patient evaluation and receiving, wound and bandage care, inter-service consults, and after-hours call. Our caseload, supported by our oncology, internal medicine and emergency services, allows for exposure to the management of a variety of soft tissue, orthopedic and neurosurgical conditions. Externs are included in biweekly journal club, weekly surgical oncology rounds, and are encouraged to attend weekly intern didactic rounds. Externship weeks are primarily spent at the Cary location however visitors may have the opportunity to rotate to other locations based on caseload.
