Our practice consists of eighteen full time veterinarians and five interns. The practice is equipped for most surgical procedures and offers full service medical and ambulatory care as well. Preceptors participate in many aspects of patient care, and are assigned to a different clinician each week.
You will be able to observe clinicians in diagnostic evaluations, radiology, surgery and treatment of hospitalized patients. We also integrate preceptors into our emergency medicine and surgery service. In addition, we will expect you to be available at the hospital at night and on weekends to participate in emergency duty with the clinicians on call. Preceptors are also included in monitoring and treatment of hospitalized intensive care patients, and our emergency surgery team both at night and on weekends.
We strongly encourage student participation in case discussions during the Monday morning, 7:00 am, staff meeting, and are happy to entertain questions and discuss cases during clinical evaluations as long as it does not interfere with communication between the clinician and client.
