The Canterbury Equine Clinic is a six veterinarian equine referral hospital and ambulatory practice located in Christchurch, New Zealand, providing services to racehorses, sport horses and leisure horses. We offer two internships for graduated veterinarians, starting in July and December. 

We have a fully equipped equine hospital and provide a full hospital service including emergency and elective surgeries, internal medicine investigations, lameness investigations and reproduction services. Our hospital comprises of stabling/yards for 27 horses, a full surgical suite, three work-up areas and a standalone barn for orthopaedic investigations. The hospital is supported by a comprehensive 24/7 in-house laboratory. 

Alongside our hospital service, we offer a full range of ambulatory racetrack, sport and leisure horse services and seasonal breeding work. 

The successful applicant will be involved in all aspects of the hospital as well as the ambulatory practice, with the support of our other veterinarians. Interns are responsible for general anaesthesia, in-patient care and working alongside our experienced veterinarians, including an ECVS-boarded surgeon. 

We are looking for a positive, enthusiastic, self-motivated veterinarian, who enjoys working as part of a team to join us.
