The diagnostic imaging internship at Kansas State University is a one year, clinical-training program, which provides a graduate DVM with experience in small and large animal diagnostic imaging. The program is designed to strengthen preparedness for entry into an ACVR-approved residency program leading to board certification in Veterinary Radiology. The successful candidate is expected to be highly motivated and collaborate well with other interns, technicians, support staff, residents, and clinicians.
The intern’s responsibility will include, but not be limited to: acquisition and quality control of imaging studies, performing radiology studies of multiple species while under supervision, and supporting the clinical, training program for 4th year veterinary students. The responsibilities of the intern will progress depending upon individual ability and may include: composing radiology reports, ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Emergency radiology duties are shared with the resident and faculty.
The intern will attend radiology student rounds, journal review meetings, known case conferences, as well as other appropriate seminars and rounds. Additionally, the intern will be asked to assist with the instruction of 2nd and 4th year veterinary students in the classroom, laboratory and clinical setting. The intern will present at least two, formal, imaging-related seminars during the year to clinical faculty and other house officers.
The intern will be mentored and supervised by the Imaging Faculty and Resident. Additional learning experience will be provided through consultation with internists, surgeons, pathologists, and other clinical and basic science specialists.
Upon successful completion of the program, an Internship Certificate is awarded.
