Our clinical rotations are 3-6 weeks long, but a visit does not necessarily have to coincide with the beginning or end of our clinical rotations. Indeed, veterinarians may participate for a single day, or for multiple days. Despite our interest in having visiting Resident Veterinarians and Intern Veterinarians, sometimes the timing of a visit or a visitor’s expectations may not allow us to host them.
