Internships & residency programs

The internship programs organised at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Ghent University, are one-year clinical trainings for graduated veterinarians. They provide practical experience in applying knowledge gained during the formal professional education and offer the opportunity for recent graduates to obtain additional training in the clinical and basic sciences within one of the major divisions of veterinary medicine. This year of comprehensive broad postgraduate training and experience prepares the veterinarian for high-quality service in practice or for a decision of an area of specialisation (residency). However, successful completion of an internship offers no guarantee for acceptance as a resident in one of the training programs organised at our Faculty.
