The Purdue Emergency Mentorship program is designed for someone who has recently graduated from veterinary school and wants to pursue a career in emergency medicine, or a practitioner looking for a career change. The program is a 2-year commitment, with the first year focused on mentored training and the second year a supported role as a primary ER clinician. The Emergency Clinician Mentorship Program is designed to improve the applicant’s critical thinking, diagnostic and treatment skills while also allowing them to gain experience working with a busy emergency caseload in a teaching environment.
In addition to mentoring and hands-on experience, the applicant will receive compensation and benefits reflective of a full-time professional staff employee, including retirement, paid time off, health insurance, continuing education funds, and more.
