Rotating Internship Program


Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists is offering the unique opportunity of a 12.5 month rotating internship scheduled to start July 1, 2018. The primary focus will be internal medicine, surgery and emergency and critical care. Each intern will have the opportunity to tailor their elective weeks to focus on any specialty service in which they desire greater exposure.


The program will provide sufficient case management, and exposure to specialty care and advanced diagnostics to produce graduates that practice high quality general or emergency medicine and surgery. Graduates will have a good understanding of when a referral to a specialist is appropriate and will be well prepared to transition into a specialty training program (residency) if desired.


Our practice includes board certified specialists in emergency and critical care (3), surgery (5), internal medicine (3), oncology (1), dentistry (1), dermatology (1), rehabilitation and acupuncture (1), neurology (1), and residency trained in emergency and critical care (1) and surgery (1). Off-site consulting staff includes a radiologist and an ophthalmologist. Our team also includes a highly skilled technical staff that includes certified VTS (ECC) (Anesthesia) technicians.


Interns are strongly encouraged to participate in on-going research projects and community services. Ideal candidates are highly motivated individuals with exceptional skills in communication, collaboration, and leadership.


The faculty members enjoy teaching and will devote considerable time to the house staff seminar series on topics including cardiac, pulmonary, neurologic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, oncologic, internal medicine, exotic and avian medicine, and surgical emergencies. Daily clinical rounds, faculty presentations, house staff presentations, journal club discussions, intern projects, and discussions pertaining to client relations and business practice management and are integral parts of this learning experience.
