The Palm Beach Equine Clinic externship program is crafted for veterinary students focused on equine medicine and allows students to visit the facility for a one to four week period. Palm Beach Equine Clinic is happy to work with potential externs to schedule a visit that best suits their schedule while allowing them exposure to as much equine veterinary knowledge as possible. It is recommended that externs request a visit during the busier winter season of November through April.
