Hagyard Equine Medical Institute - Field Care Internship
A Field Care Internship is offered at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute from January 2019 to June 2020. The internship is very intense and extremely diverse due to the large volume of horses treated by a practice of over 40 veterinarians and the enormous referral base that Hagyard enjoys.
