Pre-Veterinary Summer Internship Program

The Dawn & Wes Downs Pre-Veterinary Internship (formerly known as Caine Center Summer Pre-Veterinary Internship) is designed to provide work experience for a pre-veterinary student pursuing a career in food animal veterinary medicine. This 10-week summer internship provides a unique opportunity for students to gain valuable training and hands-on experience within a university teaching and research setting focused on food animal production, medicine, diagnostics, and surgery. Eligible students must be Idaho residents, have been pursuing full-time credits, and completed their sophomore year (by credits) in Pre-Vet Science, with the intention of attending veterinary school upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Idaho.

In addition to the internship experience, a scholarship ($5,000) is awarded to the intern through an endowed gift from the J.A. Wedum Foundation administered by the University of Idaho Foundation, and the Animal and Veterinary Science Department of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
