Carolina Veterinary Specialists offers an animal externship program for third and fourth year veterinary students. This program is for students interested in pursuing internships or for those seeking experience in a specialty they are interested in or not exposed to in school. Students are encouraged to specify their areas of interest so that rotations can be arranged accordingly.


Externships are available in:

  • Internal Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Ophthalmology
  • Oncology
  • Avian / Exotics
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Neurology
  • Emergency Medicine & Neurology combined


The goal of the externship is for students to be exposed to a diverse caseload in a busy private referral hospital. Externs participate directly with clinicians in case management and in case-based and journal club rounds in conjunction with our interns.


We have two separate intern programs:

  • Charlotte/Huntersville/Matthews
  • Greensboro/Winston-Salem

Please note: Some of the core and elective rotations are only available at particular hospitals.
