Dr. Jana Voss

Dr. Voss grew up in Berlin, Germany where her love of horses began at a local riding club, training in dressage, jumping, and coaching young riders. Prior to vet school, Dr. Voss explored abroad, working and traveling in Australia for one year. Her passion for medicine led her to enroll in the veterinary medicine program at Freie Universitaet Berlin, graduating in 2018. In her clinical year of study, she had the opportunity to spend one month at Moore Equine, and the Rocky Mountains drew her back for her internship. Dr. Voss’ primary interests include equine surgery, lameness and sports medicine. In her free time, she enjoys reading, traveling and riding at any opportunity.

Dr. Jenna Lambert

Dr. Lambert was born and raised in Calgary and her love for horses began at a young age. Growing up she enjoyed all aspects of western riding, including exploring the trails of rural AB, competing in a friendly game of pole bending or stake races, and moving cows, to her current interest in Extreme Cowboy Racing. With a keen interest in science, health and sports medicine, Dr. Lambert first enrolled in a Bachelor of Science with a focus in Kinesiology. Her interest in medicine accompanied by her love and passion for animals led her to attend the University of Calgary faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Lambert graduated with Distinction from the UCVM in 2018. Her primary interests include surgery, lameness, anesthesia and emergency medicine. In her free time, Dr. Lambert enjoys riding and training her young Quarter Horse mare “Stella”, running, traveling, and spending time with her dog Gracie and cat Tiki.

Dr. Jenni Auvinen

Dr. Auvinen is originally from a small town in Finland where she grew up spending all her free time at a local riding school helping with the daily chores, leading pony clubs and riding horses. At an early age, she started grooming show jumpers, and after graduating from high school she continued to work as a groom for international show jumping riders in Finland and elsewhere in Europe. During this time, she loved working with youngsters and horses with behavioural issues. Ever so eager to learn more, Dr. Auvinen returned to Finland to undertake a one-year horse massage course near home before starting her veterinary education in the United Kingdom.
In the summer of 2017, Dr. Auvinen graduated with Honours from the University of Nottingham, School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, and was thrilled to have the opportunity to join the Moore Equine intern team in September 2017. Her main areas of interest include equine sports medicine, surgery, internal medicine and neonatal care, and following her internship, Dr. Auvinen wishes to pursue a career in equine veterinary medicine in a hospital setting.
In her free time, Dr. Auvinen enjoys exercising, riding horses and reading books, as well as spending time outdoors. Her plan is to explore the Rockies and discover Canada with friends and family visiting from home.


 

Veterinary Intern Position

 

Moore Equine is a busy private practice that offers a broad range of experiences for interns. We provide general veterinary medicine services on both an ambulatory and in-hospital basis, as well as a referral center equipped for the full spectrum of surgical and medical care. We have advanced imaging capabilities, including a Hallmarq MRI, and a nuclear scintigraphy machine. We have 15 full time veterinarians (as well as 3 part time), and we have board certified specialists in surgery, reproduction, sport medicine and rehab, internal medicine and equine practice (ABVP). We also have veterinarians certified in acupuncture, dentistry and chiropractic treatments. Our case load is 97% equine, with the rare bovine, small ruminant or camelid case. Each year we take three interns, and the internship program is just over a year in length (June 15th to June 30th of the following year).

 

Philosophy of the internship

The internship program aims to provide a broad exposure to equine practice. As Moore Equine is a busy practice, our interns are the heart of the practice and are vital to providing excellent veterinary care. We provide interns with a nurturing, supportive and challenging environment that will allow them to advance their veterinary skills and build confidence. It is our aim that upon completion of the internship they will be very skilled equine practitioners and will be excellent candidates for residency application if desired.

 

Internship Duties

Our interns rotate through surgery, medicine and anaesthesia (with time spent in ambulatory and reproduction additionally) on a weekly schedule. Interns assist the veterinarians in appointments, surgeries and emergencies. Interns are assigned to in hospital cases, with monitoring and care of these patients as a high priority. Interns receive training in anaesthesia, and then during the year rotate through with the technicians to cover after-hours emergencies. Once trained in anesthesia the focus of the weekly anesthesia rotation is shifted to ambulatory/reproduction/lameness appointments. Within the first few months interns have gained enough experience that they can start taking in day time emergencies on their own with a veterinarian as a back-up. Interns are responsible for night time treatment of in hospital cases on their night on call. Stall rounds and journal/topic rounds are aimed to increase intern’s knowledge base. The internship is affiliated with the University of Calgary and thus interns attend grand rounds (once a month), assist with teaching labs (4 times in the year), and have the opportunity to do a research project. Our interns do work long hard hours, but have an exceptional opportunity to be involved in all facets of equine practice.

Philosophy of the externship

The externship aims to provide a broad exposure to equine practice. As Moore Equine is a busy private practice, it provides a great learning opportunity. Externs are generally very busy, and involved in all facets of daily activities and after hours care. We strive to provide opportunity for externs to practice some basic skills (ie NG intubation, catheter placement etc), and be involved in case discussion. It is also our aim that upon completion of the externship, externs will have a good idea of what our internship program offers, and can pursue an internship application if desired.

 

Externship Duties

Extern students are expected to assist with daytime and after hours appointments, emergencies and in hospital treatments. This involves assisting with treating and monitoring of in-hospital cases, following along with appointments, and watching/scrubbing in to surgeries. It is quite common that externs have long busy days, and busy nights as well, however we feel that it offers a concentrated exposure to equine practice, and many different types of cases.
