The National Marine Mammal Foundation is offering a one-year veterinary internship in aquatic animal medicine and research in cooperation with SeaWorld San Diego and the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program, based in San Diego, California.

The successful applicant will assist the veterinary staff in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of medical cases from the extensive collection of invertebrates, fishes, reptiles, amphibians, penguins, pinnipeds and cetaceans at SeaWorld San Diego and the population of pinnipeds and cetaceans at the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program. In addition, the intern will participate in the rescue, rehabilitation, and return program for stranded marine mammals, sea birds and sea turtles at SeaWorld San Diego. The intern will rotate between the two facilities, spending half of their time at each facility.

The intern will be expected to be available on weekends and holidays.
