Veterinary Student Externships

Colorado Equine Clinic has much to offer veterinary students looking for an exciting, equine-specific externship. We feel that our 20+ years of experience and full-service hospital will provide endless learning opportunities.

  • We spend approximately 50% of our time in the hospital with patients, and 50% ambulatory at field appointments.
  • Dr. Barbara Page, the practice owner and lead DVM, is also a certified farrier and chiropractor. She focuses on Sport Horse Medicine, soundness, and preventative medicine.
  • We utilize high quality diagnostic equipment as well as regenerative medications and therapies.

Externships are one to two weeks long. Housing is available if needed. Please send inquiries and resumes to Dr. Holly Gauld.

“During my three weeks at Colorado Equine, I felt incredibly welcome and learned so much. The staff members were always willing to answer anything I asked and involve me in the tasks they were doing. There were many opportunities for hands-on experience as well as observation. I really appreciated how open to discussion Dr. Page and Dr. Farris were about anything from certain therapeutics for diseases to how to interact with clients to how their weekend was with their families. I was an extern at three different veterinary clinics this summer and I have to say at Colorado Equine I felt like I was truly part of the team. I hope to return in the future!” – E. Beever
