Veterinary Internship programs are not standardized and neither are they regulated. Each internship program has its own strengths and weaknesses. It is the responsibility of the prospective intern to determine which program will best fit his/her needs. The prospective intern is strongly encouraged to determine their own short- and long-term goals, interview the program mentor, obtain feedback from current and past interns of the program, and visit prospective programs if possible.
These Guidelines refer the prospective intern and program mentors to the VECCS FACILITIES DEFINITION to familiarize themselves with the different levels of emergency and critical care facilities. The prospective intern and program mentors can use the information contained in the definitions as a guide to what type of facility, staffing and equipment resources for which to look for in an internship program.
