Internships at Bluegrass Equine Surgery

Bluegrass Equine Surgery has established an Intern Training Program in keeping to maintain the highest standards of operation not only in the U.S. but also in the equine industry’s expanding international presence. BES’ Intern Training Program was established to bring qualified individuals from abroad to the U.S. to undertake 12 months of comprehensive training to then become part of an international network of contacts and partake in the Equine Veterinary industry. Our training program is intended to provide a trainee with a thorough knowledge of and experience with the practical standards and practices employed by Bluegrass Equine Surgery.

The training focuses on clinical classroom and laboratory instruction, providing an intensive education in theoretical concepts and principles. Moreover, veterinary medicine, like most biological sciences, must be learned in a “hands-on” setting, and thus the trainee is exposed to day-to-day operations, always under the supervision of our professional staff. As in the medical field, veterinary trainees receive training by performing actual diagnostic and treatment procedures.

BES is happy to accept externships from students nationwide. Externs will be allowed to shadow Doctors on field calls throughout the week, observe surgeries, and meet many connections in the Lexington Equine community. For more information about externships please reach out to us.
