Program Description

To provide the Intern with hands-on experience in wildlife rehabilitation and medicine. At the end of the internship, Interns should be able to manage common wildlife rehabilitation cases in all aspects, including husbandry, common problems, treatment plans, diagnostics, anesthesia and surgery. To improve the Intern’s ability to recognize and identify different species of native Minnesota wildlife, and be knowledgeable of their natural history, feeding habits, habitat requirements, and any other specialized care while in a hospital and rehabilitation setting. To improve the Intern’s clinical skills working with non-domestic species, including but not limited to: venipuncture, hematology, parasitology, radiology, anesthesiology, soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery, wound and fracture management, drug and fluid administration, and necropsy. To provide opportunities to learn more about the inner workings of a large-scale wildlife hospital. To allow the Intern to engage in and improve on interpersonal skills with veterinarians, veterinary technicians, volunteers, interns, rehabilitators and members of the general public. The Intern will be scheduled 40-50 hours/week averaged over the entire year, and will work two out of every four weekends. Because of the seasonality of wildlife rehabilitation in Minnesota, the Intern should plan to work more hours per week (maximum of 50) during the Spring, Summer and Fall, and less (35-40) during the winter. For the first two months, the Intern will always be working with a Staff Veterinarian except in emergency situations. During the last ten months, the Intern will take on more independent shifts, however, will still work with Staff Veterinarians and will have access to consultation at all times. Shifts will vary but will include evenings, holidays and weekends. There is no on-call.
