Program Description:

The Department of Companion Animals at the Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward Island, Canada, invites applications for a 1-year internship in zoo, exotic animal, and wildlife medicine. The internship provides a unique opportunity for training under the supervision of a faculty member who is board-certified by the American College of Zoological Medicine. The Zoo, Exotic Animal & Wildlife Medicine (ZEAWM) service provides care to wild animals through our wildlife rehabilitation program and to zoological companion animals presented to the exotic pet clinic. Our service also works in close cooperation with local zoological institutions, wildlife parks, rehabilitation centers, and Parks Canada biologists. We play an active role in the Marine Mammal Stranding Network on the eastern coast of Canada and participate in conservation projects. The intern can expect to be involved in the medical & surgical management of a wide variety of clinical cases. Responsibilities will also include after-hours emergency duty for the ZEAWM service. The intern will interact with both 4th-year students during clinical rotations and the volunteer wildlife team all year long. The intern will be required to make a monthly oral presentation, including one clinical case conference presentation and a formal seminar on a topic of the intern’s choosing.
