During emergency duty, time is spent on day or night time services. Each intern will be responsible for both referral and walk-in emergency cases with the support of the emergency and critical care specialists, emergency doctors as well as other speciality service residents and faculty clinicians on-call. The intern will also be expected to help manage critical cases in the small animal intensive care unit.
