Friendship Hospital for Animals is a large full service urban practice located in Washington D.C. Each year, Friendship offers six post-graduate small animal rotating internship positions.
On an average day, Friendship sees 150 outpatient cases, performs 15 surgical and dental procedures and has about 30 cases in the hospital. Friendship's professional support includes a staff of 30 veterinarians, including a full time internal medicine specialist and consultants in cardiology, oncology, and surgery. Friendship veterinarians take full advantage of a well-trained team of 100 full and part time support personnel. Friendship is housed in a recently remodeled 8000 square foot state of the art facility located just inside the District of Columbia, in affluent Northwest Washington. The hospital operates twenty-four hours every day and provides both emergency services and laboratory services for local veterinarians.

All records are maintained electronically using an easy to master program. Pet Portals provides clients on line access to their pets real time health information.
Interns rotate through the general medicine, surgery, emergency, and specialty services. Time is spent with our in house internist, each of our consulting specialists in oncology, cardiology, surgery, and a referral neurologist in the area. The internship, itself, is distinguished by the relative autonomy and concurrent level of responsibility afforded interns. After a three-week period of orientation and training, interns are responsible for the in hospital and out of hospital care of their patients. Interns are supported by the enthusiastic guidance and consultation of senior staff. Interns are not required to be on call.
Educational opportunities include monthly CE lectures by area specialists, regional CE meetings and daily rounds for all staff. There are weekly rounds consisting of journal club, morbidity/mortality, topic and radiology rounds presented by interns, staff doctors and specialists.
Any applicant should possess leadership abilities, effective communication skills, academic drive, and a strong work ethic. In addition to self-motivation and professionally well prepared candidates, Friendship seeks interns who understand the importance of the human-animal bond and the critical role that the veterinarian plays in its support.
The Friendship vision revolves around respect for animals, owners and fellow team members. The successful candidate will share this philosophy and commit to the Friendship Vision.
