Interns will initially be supervised directly in all procedures, decreasing in supervision as internship progresses based on perceived competency as assessed by supervising veterinarians. Interns will rotate with each veterinarian and be responsible for supervision and daily care of in house cases, primary and follow up care of routine cases, emergency calls, assisting with routine calls, and general anesthesia for surgical procedures.
