Why extern with Canyon?

We not only encourage you to think critically about each case but also teach you about the importance of quality care and clear communication. You will gain hands on experience and build a strong foundation that you can build upon as you continue your journey.

Canyon is a very busy single doctor practice. A typical work day is 8-5 seeing about 15+ patients per day in the field and at the clinic. The caseload includes general preventative care (dentals, vaccines, etc), joint injections for our elite performance horses, internal medicine cases, and lameness. However, during breeding season we are doing all our normal procedures in addition to foaling out mares, tending to neonates, etc. 

How to apply

Recent or soon to be graduates can e-mail us a letter of intent, CV, and 3 letters of reference. Please feel free to e-mail us with any questions you may have regarding this opportunity.
