The Anesthesia Service at TAMU is excited to offer a specialty internship, starting in July 2017. This will provide the successful candidate a strong foundation in both clinical and theoretical knowledge and will enhance this person’s ability to match for an ACVAA or ECVAA residency. The intern will join a team of five board-certified anesthesiologists and a dedicated group of trained technicians.
The anesthesia intern will rotate primarily between the small and large animal anesthesia services, with a small amount of time allowed for training in critical care and with exotic species. Texas A&M has a robust and varied anesthesia caseload, and the intern will be involved in both routine and complex cases, including emergent soft tissue surgeries, advanced cardiac interventional procedures and craniotomies. The intern will also work with both large and small animals in our state-of-the-art Diagnostic Imaging & Cancer Treatment Center.
The Small and Large Animal Hospitals at Texas A&M are well equipped and house an enthusiastic and supportive faculty. We have specialists in every field, and see tertiary referral cases from all over the state. Both hospitals have up-to-date ICUs, supported by experienced technicians and several board certified Criticalists.
The intern will be selected competitively through the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program (https://www.virmp.org) of the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians (AAVC). Criteria for ranking and selection of intern candidates include academic performance in veterinary school, evaluations from at least three individuals familiar with the candidate’s academic record, clinical aptitude and interpersonal skills, and the candidate’s statement of professional goals.
