Residency Program

We offer a 36-month-long residency program in the following fields: internal medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, neurology, and radiology. Most of these programs are being run by board certified specialists recognized by international (mostly European) colleges. Board certified specialists operate in other disciplines (such as oncology, critical care, cardiology, equine medicine) and they, too, support our residents on an as-needed basis. A new program is not opened each and every year. Having gone through a rotating internship program or an equivalent is not a mandatory prerequisite but will provide a strong advantage to applying candidates.

To apply, one must be licensed to practice veterinary medicine in Israel, to be able to communicate in Hebrew at least to a reasonable extent, and to send a letter of intent, one’s curriculum vitae, and a complete transcript of grades (in either Hebrew or English) from one’s veterinary medical education. Candidates who have not graduated from the Koret School of Veterinary Medicine or who have not gone through the Koret internship program are requested to also provide 3 letters of recommendation written by their faculty and/or employers. Applications should be sent electronically, preferably when an opening is being publicly advertised and not otherwise.

More information can be found in the Veterinary Medical University Hospital.
