Veterinary Anesthesiology Resident
College of Veterinary Medicine, Texas A&M University
The Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
The Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Texas A&M University in College Station invites applications for a non-tenure-track 36-month organized and comprehensive anesthesia residency program in small and large animal anesthesia and analgesia.
Residents train in the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) under the supervision of board-certified veterinary specialists. Program goals include the opportunity for the resident to prepare for the qualifying and certifying examinations of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia and promotion of clinical excellence in veterinary anesthesiology. The residency program is a structured experience, consisting of clinical and didactic learning opportunities. Residents will be encouraged to attend pertinent scientific meetings and present original research. Residents are expected to interact with clients, teach veterinary students, and generate income for the VMTH.
In addition to performing their duties during regular working hours, residents are also on duty during out-of-hours and holiday periods when the rest of the University is closed. Residents work the hours necessary to provide appropriate care to their animal patients irrespective of the time of day. Rarely will the resident work less than a 40-hour week. Duty assignments are typically made by the hospital service chief in cooperation with the department head.
Besides their patient care responsibilities, residents are expected to participate in didactic learning which will include daily anesthesiology service rounds, weekly house officer rounds, weekly anesthesiology resident rounds including journal club, bi-weekly ECG rounds with cardiology, bi-weekly case discussion rounds, and several wet-labs focusing on locoregional and advanced monitoring and anesthesia techniques. The specific activities and time frames during which these activities are pursued are adjusted in order to allow the resident to work toward fulfilling the requirements for board certification in veterinary specialties recognized by the American Board of Veterinary Specialties.
Minimum qualifications include a DVM degree or equivalent, completion of a rotating internship or equivalent, and eligibility for a regular or special license to practice veterinary medicine in Texas. Acceptance into the second and third years of the program will be dependent upon successful completion of the previous year's program, as assessed by regular evaluations during and at the end of each year. The resident must meet requirements for either special or full licensure in Texas. These requirements include being either a graduate of College of Veterinary Medicine accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) or having certification by the AVMA’s education commission for foreign veterinary graduates (ECFVG) or the program for the assessment of veterinary education equivalence (PAVE).
