VHC Interns and Resident Programs

Interns and Residents (House Officers) are veterinarians who have chosen to further their veterinary education by working under the supervision of boarded veterinary specialists.

Internships are a one year program that gives the intern a chance to work with specialist in areas such as medicine and surgery.

Residents are veterinarians training to become board certified veterinary specialists. A residency is a two to three year program where the resident focuses on one specific area of veterinary medicine.
