Opportunities for Pre-Vet Students:

Part-Time Unpaid Internship – Summer 2019
Practice Description: Combination farrier and mixed animal (mostly equine) veterinary practice in the south Metro Denver area. Exclusively mobile/ambulatory practice.
Time Commitment: 3-4 days/week (Wednesday – Saturday); work days scheduled from around 9 AM – 6 PM but can vary especially with emergencies. As this is an unpaid internship, there is schedule flexibility in relation to other part time jobs that candidates may hold during the summer. Start/End dates flexible – mid May/early June to late July/early August. There will be one working trip out-of-town (at a horse ranch) either July 1-3 or 8-10 – this is a required trip!!
Internship Requirements:
- Strong desire to learn – I am looking for a person who wants to learn hands-on skills related to both veterinary AND farrier care of horses and other small livestock. I am also seeking a person with good organizational and record-keeping skills for tasks such assisting with medical records, set-up/tear down of the truck, etc.
- Significant horse experience and strong horse-handling skills – For safety reasons and due to time limits of internship, only those with a solid background working with horses will be considered.
- Be able to handle very physically-demanding tasks – Intern will be learning basic farrier skills in addition to veterinary skills. The work is challenging when experienced and doubly hard when learning. Additionally, we will be working outside in the summer – It will get hot!! We will drink a lot of water!! You will sweat and be uncomfortable!! - Due to the potential for long days with early starts and late finishes, candidates will need to have reliable and safe place to stay within 30 minutes of Parker during work week. Ft. Collins is just too far to commute daily.
- Lastly, we are primarily seeking candidates with a strong interest in pursuing vet school in the future or who are currently enrolled in vet school. For the pre-vet candidate, we will spend significant time discussing pros/cons and different options for vet school. For the vet student, we will discuss how to navigate school and life as afterwards as a vet.
Additional Opportunities: This can and has served as an official internship for graduation. Speak with your advisor about your needs and be able to communicate those to me to ensure completion. This internship will be tailored as much as possible to your needs/goals. Please put significant thoughts to areas in which you would like to grow/improve.
