Locum Clinician in Small Animal Medicine/Oncology/ECC

University of Edinburgh - Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies

Applications are invited from board-certified or residency-trained clinicians in Small Animal Medicine to work in the Internal Medicine, Oncology and Emergency and Critical Care Services alongside senior clinical academic staff. 

The Medicine Service is housed within the Hospital for Small Animals which is a superbly equipped, modern hospital with video endoscopy, I131 facility, on-site CT scanner, fluoroscopy unit, an interventional radiology theatre, radiotherapy, and ICU facilities. The services are part of a multi-disciplinary team which works closely with diagnostic imaging, neurology, and surgery to provide outstanding patient, client and referring veterinarian care.  

The position involves assisting with the clinical caseload of the internal medicine, oncology and emergency and critical care service, as well as providing supervision for undergraduates, residents and interns. 

The applicant should either have an ECVIM/ACVIM diploma or have completed an approved residency training position. We would ideally like an individual who would be able to provide cover for all three disciplines, however there is some flexibility in this. Excellent written and spoken English is a requirement and the applicant should be a member, or eligible to become a member of, the RCVS. Experience in teaching in a veterinary school is desirable. 

The post is available from March 2017 for a 12 month period. 

Informal enquiries are encouraged and should be directed to Dr Adam Gow (email: adam.gow@ed.ac.uk, telephone 0131 650 6247).
