Externships

OUR MISSION is to "HELP EL PASO HELP THEIR PETS!" and our vision is to be the best and friendliest Veterinary Clinic in the community!  If you want to be a part of that, and are friendly, courteous, passionate, motivated, and EXCITED about what you do and how you can help your clients and their pets, then you are a perfect fit for our team! We boast great staff, progressive medicine and medical equipment, a variety and flair that no other clinic can offer, and wonderful weather year round. We are well known and well loved!

In El Paso there are currently about 18,000 dogs and cats that are euthanized each year as a consequence of our community’s pet overpopulation problem. It is our responsibility to educate our clients and do our part to minimize this number. El Paso is a place where you can truly make a difference. We try to offer a little of everything so that our clients can get all the care they need for all of their pets in one place.

As a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Extern you will see small, large, farm, and exotic patients. You will also get a chance to work in a traditional practice, mobile practice, and preform home visits. During your time as an extern, you will get to shadow three different veterinarians with different levels of experience. You will also get the opportunity for professional development and hands experience in areas such as surgery, diagnostics, disease treatment, and client education. Gaining this much experience from one practice is hard to come by.

Our Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Externs may work in our mobile practice, Paws N' Hooves Mobile Veterinary Services, where we perform low-cost services throughout El Paso.  Our mobile clinic is a completely transformed RV that includes exam rooms, surgery room, kennels, digital radiographs, and a laboratory. With the limited space on the mobile you will work closely with 2-3 technicians Tuesdays-Saturdays at a different location each day. A large support staff is always available to you at Mesa Veterinary Clinic.  

With a smaller second mobile we are able to participate in spay and neuter clinics in our outlying communities. These clinics include various locations for Coalition for Pets and People and SNAP. Depending on our availability we are able to participate in 4-10 clinics per month.

For our more traditional setting, our mixed animal veterinarians may work in our main clinic, Mesa Veterinary Clinic.  Here we perform full hospitalization, some orthopedic surgeries, and see small pocket pets to horses and cattle!  At this clinic, we have a full reception and technician staff, along with a management team. There are two large exam rooms for patients, a laboratory, an x-ray room, surgery room, boarding kennels, isolation kennels, and post-op kennels. Mesa Veterinary Clinic will soon be moving to a brand new building and transitioning to a 24-hour clinic. This location will allow for us to offer non-traditional working shifts for those who are interested. It will be 1 of only 2 locations available overnight in El Paso so we expect for it to be exciting and will require someone who is quick on their feet.

For those who are looking for a different experience we also have a farm truck for our large animal lovers. 1-2 times a week we have a day filled with house and farm calls. These are scheduled for those people in our community who unable to bring their pets to us. These visits are performed by one of our associate veterinarians with the assistance of one technician.

 *All externs must be currently enrolled in an accredited Veterinary College.
