Available Program

Rotating Internships

The 12-month rotating internship program at SASH is designed to further develop your skills in a range of disciplines, with a goal of preparing you for a future residency, if you choose to do so. The SASH rotating internship is truly rotating, spending time with specialists in the key services of Medicine, Surgery, Emergency and Critical Care, with the ability to rotate through the other services . There are varying levels of case responsibility and plenty of opportunities to learn from registered specialists in these fields.

Interns participate in weekly didactic seminars, journal clubs, and morbidity and mortality rounds. We provide support for candidates wishing to sit their ANZCVS membership exams. We encourage our interns to submit journal publications and present at prestige conferences such as ANZCVS Science Week and speciality international conferences. Graduates from the SASH rotating internship have gone on to pursue highly competitive residencies locally and internationally in all specialities. They have also gone on to become excellent General Practice and Emergency Vets.

Specialist Internships

After completing your rotating internship, there are opportunities to apply for a speciality internship within particular specialist teams that interest you. Please get in touch with us if you are looking to join us for your specialist internship by emailing
