Hospital Internships

The hospital employs five interns. Positions arise approximately every six months and we are therefore always recruiting.

The internship is a two-year rotating programme suitable for new and recently qualified graduates. Interns rotate through the hospital service areas and are responsible for in-patient care under supervision of senior clinicians including 5 ECVS, 1 ACVSM&R Diplomate and 2 ECVIM Diplomates. The programme also includes formal training in anaesthesia by ECVA Diplomates. Interns are on a 1 in 5 first call, 1 in 5 second call and 1 in 5 third on call basis.

The internship provides training and experience for most equine post-graduate specialist qualifications and has an excellent track record of successfully preparing candidates for residency positions. The training also provides invaluable experience for future work in equine practice. All interns are given the opportunity to undertake a project suitable for publication.
