We welcome interns to join us for a one year internship! 

 East-West Equine Sports Medicine is a unique private equine practice that spans the United
 States following the AA rated hunter/jumper show circuits. We feel very fortunate to follow
 the best weather all year. We are based in Lexington, KY but spend our winters (October-
 March) in Thermal, California, and summers (June-September) in Traverse City, Michigan. In-
 between we are located back in Lexington, KY. 

 Things interns may learn and practice while with us are:
  • Lameness examinations
  • Pre-purchase/pre-lease examinations,
  • FEI jogs and classes
  • Ring emergencies
  • Colic examinations
    • IV Catheter Placement

    • Nasogastric tubing

    • Rectal palpation 

  • Joint injections 
  • Diagnostic imaging
    • ​Radiography

    • Ultrasound

  • Shockwave therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Ophthalmology exams
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Research projects


 By no means is this a comprehensive list! Rarely do we know what kind of day we will have at
 a show, so interns will get to see and practice a large variety of clinical medicine.


 If you have questions or would like to apply for an internship, please email us with a resume
 and cover letter!
