Residency Training Program in Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation
Colorado State University
A 3-year residency in equine sports medicine and rehabilitation is being offered by the Department of Clinical Sciences at Colorado State University. This unique opportunity will involve a partnership between Equine Sports Medicine, a private practice based out of Pilot Point, Texas and Colorado State University. Two thirds of the clinical training will be spent out of state with the Equine Sports Medicine Practice with the remainder occurring at CSU. The didactic requirement of this program will occur mainly at Colorado State University.
The goal of the residency is to expose the individual to the practice of equine sports medicine and rehabilitation in order to qualify for board certification in the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. The resident will participate in clinical teaching of students, rounds and seminar presentation to peer groups, development of research projects and coursework leading to a Master’s degree in the Department of Clinical Sciences. The residency training program will begin mid-July in 2021 and last for 3 years in duration.
The application deadline is October 1, 2020, 11:59pm mountain standard time. Late applications will not be accepted.
Applicants will be notified by October 19, 2020 as to whether or not they will receive a virtual interview.
Virtual interviews will be conducted the week of October 26-30, 2020. Applicants may then be selected to do an onsite interview with the Equine Sports Medicine Clinicians during an AQHA horse show in November.
