Established in 1995 as Surgi-Care Center for Horses, Brandon Equine Medical Center is the only practice of its kind serving the vicinities of Florida counties: Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando, Sumter, Citrus, Sarasota, Charlotte, and Manatee.

From our board-certified horse surgeons and board-certified internist to our professional and courteous staff, at Brandon Equine Medical Center, we are committed to the health and well-being of all breeds and sizes of horses. In the field, as an outpatient, or when admitted to the horse hospital, we treat every horse like our own and every client as the most important.

Brandon Equine Medical Center is seeking a teammate that has an interest in emergency equine veterinary practice. This individual should enjoy having their days to themselves to ride their horse, participate in all the activities the Gulf of Mexico provides, or spend quality time with family and friends. Working hours will be nights and weekends and include hospital case management and emergency on-call, allowing honing of the clinician’s equine emergency medical and surgical skills under the tutelage of a group of equine specialists. This work will be done primarily in a hospital setting with a dedicated team of veterinary technicians and assistants. There will be some ambulatory work as well, but the majority will be hospital-based.

This position will be unique and outside of the traditional equine veterinary medicine box. Our profession is changing, and we must change with it! The position would be appropriate for a new grad looking for mentorship and guidance, but also seeking a life of their own. It could also be ideal for a seasoned practitioner that wants a change in practice style.

We are located in the beautiful Tampa Bay area with immediate access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico 30 miles away.

Pacific Crest Equine - Exeter, CA Internship

Since 2006 Pacific Crest Equine has offered an internship program in general equine practice. We feel that our program offers new veterinarians a solid skill level and knowledge base as well as confidence in all aspects of practice. After a variable “mentoring” period, interns take ambulatory calls independently, assist in surgery and anesthesia, and become the primary veterinarian on medical, sports medicine and outpatient cases. Although a senior clinician is always available for consultation, we encourage interns to test their veterinary knowledge and to develop their client communication skills by handling their own cases.

At Pacific Crest Equine we try to offer an internship that is balanced by healthy personal growth. Although interns participate with emergency duty after the mentoring period, it is in a rotational basis with senior clinicians. We offer a limited weekend schedule and allow for generous time for travel and extracurricular activities. A large, furnished apartment above the hospital is provided. Internships are salaried positions with benefits as well as paid CE and vacation.
