Webinar November 18th to Introduce Maddie's Shelter Medicine Internship

November 5, 2021

University of Wisconsin-Madison Shelter Medicine Program is announcing a great opportunity to learn more about our 2022/2023 Shelter Medicine Internship through a live web conference on Thursday November 18th at 6pm CST. We have open positions for two Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Interns for the 2022/2023 year posted through the VIRMP matching program. Our internship is a fantastic one-of-a-kind combination of clinical work at our local shelter Dane County Humane Society, participation in our innovative HSUS Pets for Life veterinary house calls program, and instruction and supervision on shelter consulting, disease outbreak management, diagnostic testing, and shelter medicine research with the UW Shelter Medicine Program team. More details about our shelter medicine internship program and application process can be found on the VIRMP website.

Our live web conference will be hosted by our UW Maddie’s Clinical Instructor, Dr. Emily Pellatt, and will be an opportunity for interested applicants to join her and one of our current interns for a virtual tour of Dane County Humane Society and a Q&A session to answer any questions potential applicants may have about our internship. The web conference will be held on Thursday November 18th at 6pm CST and can be joined at the following link: https://uwmadison.zoom.us/j/91300542682.

We encourage attendees of the web conference to join on a computer with video and microphone capabilities so you can use video chat but you can also dial in for audio using the below number. We hope to be able to record this session to make it available but encourage interested applicants to join live to get the opportunity to speak with Dr. Pellatt.

Questions about our UW Shelter Medicine internship can be directed to Shelter Medicine Program Assistant Director Stephanie Koester at smkoester@wisc.edu or UW Maddie’s Clinical Instructor Dr. Emily Pellatt at epellatt@wisc.edu. Our current shelter medicine intern Dr. Sarah Hefferan (shefferan@wisc.edu) is also available to answer questions about their internship experiences.
