The ACCA welcomes inquiries about our internship program. We work with potential interns and their universities to develop projects and plans of study that will be mutually beneficial for the intern and the ACCA. Potential interns interested in wildlife, exotic, or small animal medicine may have the opportunity to shadow one of our volunteer veterinarians who cares for domestic pets and well as the ACCA’s patients. Our interns are unpaid at this time.

Contact us for more information on how to apply.

Featured Intern: Walker Roberts

Walker was the ACCA’s first intern back in 2012; now, she is Walker Roberts, DVM, and works as a small animal and exotic veterinarian in Florida. Before veterinary school, and in addition to the ACCA, she interned at the Ohio Wildlife Center Hospital in Columbus, OH, and she interned with a wildlife vet who also had a large and small animal practice at Buckeye Lake, Ohio. She spent two summers in Poland teaching English to Polish-speaking students ranging in age from kindergarten to adult, and she spent a semester studying, hiking to, and staying at the Buddhist temples in China. Walker is also an experienced horseman. She loves reading, writing, video editing, and hiking. She is grateful to the ACCA and Dr. Fallon for this opportunity to intern and contribute to the mission of conserving wild birds in Appalachia. We are very proud of Walker, and celebrate all her successes as a veterinarian!
