Do you think you have what it takes to make it as an ambulatory equine veterinarian? We can teach you to be successful in this challenging, and deeply rewarding profession. Our internship program is designed to provide mentorship to new equine veterinarians as they become the veterinarian that provides the first-opinion on challenging cases. It is our belief that simply completing school and becoming a licensed veterinarian does not fully prepare anyone for equine ambulatory practice. Often the reality of this profession is far different from the expectations of recent graduates. A recent study reported that almost 2/3 of graduating veterinarians that want to be equine veterinarians change to another species or quit the profession altogether within the first few years of their career. We want to address this problem. Equine practice can be unrelenting in its demands and challenges and is not for everyone. It is not always a path to significant wealth, but it is a career that allows you to build long lasting and significant relationships within your community, with the horses and their owners. It is an extremely gratifying profession for those who learn to meet the demands and manage the struggles unique to equine ambulatory practice. Reata can help you learn these skills by providing you support as you venture into the field with real cases and real owners. During your time at Reata, you will learn how to identify and treat common medical conditions. But more importantly, you will learn how to communicate effectively with horse owners, obtain client compliance and provide value. You will have all the support you need, but we will ask a lot of you. You will feel overwhelmed. You will struggle. You will question your career decisions and, in the end, if this is the profession for you, you will love it. Tucson has an average of 350 days of sunshine each year. While here, you will have some time to experience Southern Arizona’s rich cultural legacy through the many art galleries, museums, local shops, live entertainment, restaurants, and outdoor recreational opportunities. Tucson was rated by “Travel and Leisure” as #4 on the world’s most underrated cities. This is due in part to the University of Arizona, our famous rodeo, mountain views, quick access to Saguaro National Park, and “laid-back” culture. Some interesting events include the Tucson Gem and Mineral Festival, Tucson Meet Yourself, The 4th Avenue Street Fair, and The All Souls Procession.
