Job Description for Veterinary Surgeon

Like human doctors, veterinarians often have specialties or areas of expertise. If an animal has a serious injury or needs a tricky operation, a veterinarian surgeon is called upon. To qualify for this position, students need to engage in extra training after they graduate from veterinary school. They must complete at least a one-year internship and a three-year residency program. While participating in this training, there are stringent requirements that students must meet. They must take on certain types of cases and volumes of work, in addition to submitting research to be published in a scientific journal. There is also, of course, a thorough examination to test the students’ knowledge before completion of the residency. Upon finishing the residency and passing the exam, students then become board-certified surgeons.
