The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences provides world-class, outcome-based education and training of animal and veterinary scientists in a research environment. Based at the Roseworthy Campus, 60km north of the Adelaide CBD and minutes from Gawler, the school is situated on a 1600 ha property that includes a working farm, full service Veterinary Health Centre teaching clinics, and a range of general purpose and specialist teaching and research facilities.

The Veterinary Health Centre (VHC) is the School’s clinical teaching facility which operates on a commercial basis, offering a range of first opinion, ambulatory and specialist veterinary services across all animal species to the general public and referring veterinarians. 

The Internship is a 12 months intensive full time professional (clinical) formative program aiming to help the Intern to develop his

capacity to identify and solve medical problems (within the disciplines of equine internal medicine, surgery, anaesthesia,

reproduction and ambulatory services), his ability to work-up a case and his medical written and oral expression skills and to

teach non graduated students the elements of day one skills (technical and non-technical as described in the DVM program of the

University of Adelaide) they have to master at the time of their graduation.

The ultimate aim of the Internship is to prepare the Intern to enter a specialty college qualifying (residency) program or to prepare

him to enter a high standard level of equine general practice. The program is also based on and encounters the guidelines of the

RCVS Professional Development Phase (PDP) for those Interns who registered for this program.
