Graduate veterinarians may further develop their equine knowledge and skills through a year-long internship in general equine practice with Hess Equine. The intern has the opportunity to learn and develop skills in general medicine and surgery as well as reproduction, sports medicine, and Thoroughbred sales.


Because of the diversity and progressive nature of the practice, an internship with Hess Equine prepares the graduate veterinarian for all routine aspects of ambulatory practice. Through the use of our advanced imaging equipment and the opportunity to assist in technical medical and surgical procedures, the intern achieves a very well-rounded post-graduate experience.


One veterinary intern is accepted annually to rotate throughout the practice under the guidance of our regular full time veterinarians. Interns will, dependent upon their skillset development, see calls and emergencies on their own.


Veterinary students interested in future internship opportunities are highly encouraged to visit for a regularly scheduled externship opportunity.


We invite motivated veterinary students interested in a career in equine practice to apply during their fourth year by November 15th. Applicants must be eligible for licensure in MD and PA.  Competitive salary.
