Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists (CRES) offers four (4), one year internship positions for recently graduated veterinarians wishing to pursue additional training under the guidance of equine specialists. The internship is hospital based where each intern rotates through surgery, medicine/critical care, advanced imaging and anesthesia, and overnight/emergency. Our caseload is a mix of Thoroughbred and Standardbred racehorses, Sport horses of various disciplines, and pleasure horses.
Interns participate in a hands-on program. We pride ourselves on an active teaching and learning process for our interns through case rounds, hospital rounds, collaborative interactive seminars with the faculty and residents in Ithaca, and journal club. The internship has broad exposure to specialists with the goal of providing state-of-the-art care to our patients and a diverse learning experience for our interns. Cornell Ruffian has 2 full time surgeons on site, with clinicians rotating through from Cornell Ithaca. In addition to access to the breadth of faculty at Cornell University, local consultations are frequently performed in ophthalmology and podiatry.
Interns have the opportunity to participate in a clinical research project with the goal of submitting one manuscript for publication.
We welcome both new graduates and veterinarians who have already completed 1-2 internships. Many of our interns pursue specialty residency training. We are proud to have a high match rate with those interested in residency level training as well as success with those interested in advanced research (PhD programs).
