The primary goals of this program are to help you become skilled at patient assessment and care and build diagnostic and treatment plans in an emergency setting. You will also learn how to navigate through complex in-hospital cases and communicate effectively with clients and colleagues. We emphasize teamwork, compassion, and fair treatment of staff at all levels. We view solid mentorship in a real clinical setting as a critical step to becoming a successful emergency veterinarian.
“DoveLewis is a great place to grow - let us help you! Every DVM we have is welcoming and willing to help, whether it be lending a second pair of eyes on some radiographs or helping you unblock that difficult cat. You are never alone when working through cases and caring for your patients.” – Lindsey McGuire, DVM
This mentorship program is a three-year opportunity with your first year focusing on a combination of didactic learning and hands on clinical work including achieving individual learning goals under the supervision of our DVM Mentorship Director.

After successfully completing your first year you will transition to working as a Staff Veterinarian with ICU training during the second year and full responsibilities by your third year.
