Internship in Emergency & Critical Care

Based within our busy Emergency and Critical Care Service at the Hospital for Small Animals at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, this one-year ECC internship is the perfect launching pad for those considering further clinical training in this field, as well as those wishing to return to private practice.

The veterinary school has a strong tradition of research, and ECC interns are encouraged to pursue research under the guidance of a mentor. We boast a thriving programme of continuing education within the hospital, including dedicated weekly ECC journal clubs. ECC interns also have the opportunity for electives, which may be spent gaining further clinical or research experience within the veterinary school or undertaking externships elsewhere.

Candidates should have experience of emergency practice and/or rotational internship, and must be a member of RCVS and have appropriate English language qualifications at the time of interview. The internship start date is 25th June 2018.
