We offer externships at all of our locations throughout Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. As an extern, you will work under the direct supervision of an experienced veterinarian at one of our Coyne animal hospitals.
You will have the opportunity to work alongside other Coyne professionals and actively participate in every aspect of patient care.
We're not just looking for talent; we like to get to know our externs and help them maximize their potential. Every student learns at their own pace, but we want to make sure we're giving you the best tools.
Since Coyne practices are open 7 days a week and accept walk-ins only, you can expect to see a high volume of patients and clients. This will give you the opportunity to learn at a much faster pace than you would at a standard appointment-only practice. Like our employees, we expect externs to work hard, interacting with our clients and getting hands-on experience.
Some of the primary tasks you'll be expected to perform include:
Gathering patients' medical histories
Performing nose-to-tail physical exams
Formulating and implementing diagnostic and therapeutic care plans
Using cutting-edge tools and technology
Scrubbing into surgery
Helping your supervising DVM manage various medical cases
Providing wellness care
Sharpening your client communication skills
Fine-tuning your clinical and technical skills
Understanding and adhering to the Coyne business model
To apply for an externship, you must be:
Enrolled in an accredited doctor of veterinary medicine program
Authorized to work in the United States
Available to work days, evenings and weekends
