Pilchuck offers both externship and internship programs for veterinary students and graduates



If you have questions or would like to apply for an internship/externship at our hospital, please contact:

Dr. Brandon King, brandon.king@pathwayvets.com.



Equine Externship

Equine externships lasting two to three weeks are available to students who have completed two years of veterinary school. Externships are designed to provide hands-on experience in large animal medicine and surgery to students interested in pursuing an internship after graduation, and those seeking experience in a private practice setting.

Applications for externships are accepted year-round. Summer months fill up fastest. 

Equine Internship

Each year, we accept two DVM graduates for year-long equine internships. As part of the hospital team, interns gain valuable experience at a state of the art equine care, preparing them to enter private practice or a residency program. Through hands-on experience, interns gain confidence with diagnostic and therapeutic techniques essential to the equine practitioner and share in a learning environment where we all benefit from each other’s expertise to provide the highest quality of care to our patients. 

For more information on both programs please visit the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) web site www.aaep.org, and under Students/Avenues.  Here you will find up-to-date information about our internship and externship opportunities.

Internship applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please send an updated resume, cover letter, and references/letters of recommendation to brandon.king@pathwayvets.com for consideration.
