The Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University invites applications for the Residency in Equine Practice position. The inclusive dates of the program are July 15, 2019 to July14, 2021. The program provides two years of clinical training in many phases of equine practice and fulfills requirements necessary to qualify for certification by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). Specific requirements for residents and credentialing application for the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners can be viewed at their website (www.ABVP.com). The objectives of the program are to provide the resident with advanced clinical training for general equine practice, to allow the resident to fulfill requirements necessary to qualify for board certification by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (Equine Practice), to engage the resident in instruction of veterinary students and interns, and to develop skills within the resident in public speaking, critical review of literature, and manuscript preparation. The successful candidate for residency will participate in patient care predominantly through the activities of the equine primary care services (ambulatory and in-house) where the caseload is similar to that of a general equine practice, and there will be an emphasis on equine dentistry (primary dental care, dental consultation for other hospital services, and management of referral dental cases). Opportunity also exists for the resident to participate on other clinical services and private practices in order to broaden case management experiences. The resident will share participation in after-hours equine ambulatory emergency duty. Prerequisites include a DVM, VMD, or equivalent degree from an AVMA approved College of Veterinary Medicine, and a one-year internship or one-year of practice experience predominantly caring for equine species. Successful licensure by the Texas State Board of Veterinary Examiners is required prior to the start of employment, and all residents are required to apply for a DEA Certificate (NOT license) prior to the start of employment (upon signing an offer letter, the resident will be provided instructions on how to obtain the DEA certificate).
