Wait! Don't be fooled by the glossy brochures and big hospitals. Don't go to an internship where you will not learn about real world medicine, or real world problems in a real world setting. Don't be an indentured servant for a year working 7 nights a week for little pay with little sleep and not being ready to market your skills to the type of practice you will eventually work for and own. Don't finish your year not understanding the internal workings of an ambulatory practice including the business end.
Colts Neck Equine Associates is offering a real life ambulatory internship where you will be exposed to all areas of ambulatory medicine. We are a 5 doctor primary care group that includes high level show and pleasure horses, standardbred and thoroughbred racing stables and everything in between. Our doctors have advanced training in lameness diagnostics, acupuncture, spinal manipulation, dentistry and business. You will rotate through the different types of ambulatory practices and get exposed to a wide variety of styles, clients, patients and medicine. Our internship also includes exposure to running a practice including HR, accounting, bookkeeping, inventory, and billing.
Equipment is all up to date including digital xrays, ultrasounds, gastroscope, lameness locator, regenerative and therapeutic lasers, and ESWT units.
Central New Jersey is one hour from NYC, Philadelphia, Atlantic City and close to beaches, rural farms and suburbia. We have the best of all worlds including a vibrant equine population. Don't get fooled by other internships from big referral centers. Make the best of your year and fill it with experiences and education that you can take with you throughout your career.
The successful applicant will be hard working, excited about ambulatory medicine and have a thirst to learn. They will need to be license eligible in New Jersey and want to work in a great collaborative environment with an enthusiastic technical and office staff.
Additional Salary Information: $2000 per month for first 6 months, then $3000 per month for next 6 months. A $5000 bonus will be given at the successful completion of the internship. Living quarters are available if required.
