The intern program at Douglas Animal Hospital is a unique experience that allows for individuals that are interested in veterinary medicine to work alongside our team and gain invaluable insight. The program allows for skill building while interacting with patients, clients and colleagues. While we are able to cater the experience to the individual’s goals, we have set up a 12 week schedule that incorporates all aspects of veterinary medicine.

Individuals can expect to have a hands-on experience that provides exposure to all aspects of small animal medicine in the intimate setting of a privately owned clinic. Interns spend time observing and participating (when appropriate) in the following areas:

  • anesthesia/surgery/dentistry
  • animal handling
  • animal husbandry
  • wellness care and preventative medicine
  • emergency protocols
  • safety/sanitation
  • radiology
  • laboratory techniques and processes
  • client care
  • scheduling and record keeping

Interested candidates will go through a selection process by first submitting their resume and letter of interest via mail to:

Douglas Animal Hospital
Attn: Intern Program
116 Central Ave
Osseo, MN 55369

Candidates can also email their resume to using the subject line “Intern Program”.

Prospective interns will be contacted via email for an in-person interview and will be notified of the decision regarding their internship via email.
