You’re a highly skilled veterinarian with at least 18 months of clinic experience under your belt. You’re exceedingly enthusiastic and passionate about being a veterinarian, and have no intention of doing anything else. Still, you’re not fully satisfied with your career. You want to do more, and help more pets and people. You’re eager to be a part of something that challenges you to practice medicine in a unique and customer-focused way.
This is where the VEG Emergency Fellowship comes in.
The Emergency Fellowship is a training and mentorship program developed specifically for general practice veterinarians who want to make the switch into emergency medicine. It’s a 4-month program that combines emergency-focused didactic and clinical learning, and includes a largely self-driven curriculum, regular mentor meetings, and working alongside an experienced emergency doctor.
What the Emergency Fellowship Involves
Here is some of what you can expect when you participate in the training program:
- You will work 3 shifts per week alongside an experienced ER doctor
- You will attend weekly mentor meetings and a doctor journal club
- You will complete a self-paced didactic curriculum
- You will attend and participate in several continuing education experiences (fully paid for by VEG) related to emergency medicine, which will cover:
- Core surgery procedure course
- Avian and exotics course
- CPR training
- You will also attend certain conferences, depending on the time of year
What Happens After I Finish the Program?
Once you have completed your VEG Emergency Fellowship, you will immediately be rolled into our full-time doctor schedule and begin working solo shifts on the floor.
