“My time at Woodside had a profound effect on how I approach and treat both horses and clients on a daily basis. The veterinary staff has expertise that spans every facet of equine medicine, and the environment is one in which, as an intern, you’re encouraged to grow as a clinician in a supportive, family-like atmosphere. With a caseload that covers routine and emergency ambulatory work and emergent and elective referral cases, Woodside provides ample experience to ready you for a career in ambulatory work or additional internships/residencies.” Katy Sullivan, intern 2015-16
“My intern year was invaluable. The mentorship provided by the veterinarians and staff helped me gain the skills and knowledge to feel comfortable going out into practice. I gained confidence over the year that I did not have when I left vet school.” Laurie Vogel, intern 2018-19
