Tryon Equine Hospital is a private specialty referral center serving North Carolina, Georgia, and the South Carolina upstate with four board certified surgeons and a board-certified internist. We are proud to offer state of the art, 24-hour surgical and medical care, and advanced lameness diagnostics.

Additionally, Tryon Equine Hospital provides medical coverage for many local equine exhibitions, including all events at the Tryon International Equestrian Center. The hospital is located in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Columbus, North Carolina, just 30 miles east of Asheville, North Carolina, and 20 miles north of Spartanburg, South Carolina.
As an extern, you can expect to spend time both in the clinic and on the road with ambulatory clinicians. Cases seen in the clinic range from general health checks to referral emergency surgery and medical cases. Our ambulatory clinicians spend time on local farms working with clients on everything from vaccines and herd health issues to advanced lameness diagnosis and emergency medical care. Each day, you will be assigned to shadow a clinician, either in house or on the road. How much you participate in each aspect of what the practice offers depends both on your interests and the practice needs. *If you are planning on applying for our Internship Program it is recommended that you participate in all of our departments and spend time with all of our clinicians.*

Description of Elective Experience:

We offer dynamic and diverse career opportunities in a variety of disciplines, along with a unique learning experience which may align with your career goals and path. Our culture is education-first, where cross training in multiple aspects of the organization is encouraged. The objective is to provide career experiences that are engaging, educational, and team focused.

We are one team at LBEMC and we recognize each role as critical to our overall success.

We truly enjoy having students visit our clinic and each one brings a unique and fresh perspective to our team.

Our externships provide an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with equine medicine in a private practice setting.

Given our wide range of services, students gain valuable experience in many areas of equine medicine; which is what makes our externship opportunities unique and highly respected.

Each day brings dynamic new education opportunities as externs are encouraged to assist in reviewing hospital cases and participate in morning rounds.

The objective is for our students to take an active role in their own education by contributing their insights and pursuing knowledge and experience in all areas of equine medicine.

LBEMC has a significant emergency caseload (after hours) and we encourage our students to participate (voluntarily.) These cases can be exceptional opportunities to learn and assist where/when appropriate.

Our training includes hands-on, job shadowing, listening, and observation; which can be effective as these experiences are highly impactful for the knowledge retention process.

For a well-rounded experience, we try to divide students’ time between surgical cases, in-house medical cases, and ambulatory appointments. In addition, the externship can be geared towards specific areas of interest within our equine medical disciplines.
