The Department seeks to recruit a Junior Clinical Veterinarian in Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery (Service Intern) from February 2023 or as soon as possible after that date, in order to enhance provision of the Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery service and undergraduate teaching.
You will help to facilitate the smooth running of the Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery service by supporting the team with all aspects of the work-up, diagnosis and management of small animal soft tissue surgery patients, helping with scheduling of appointments, preparation for and assisting with surgeries, and helping with the post-surgical aftercare and discharge of the patients; as well as supporting final-year veterinary students during their small animal soft tissue surgery rotation. Assisting with the assessment of brachycephalic patients using functional grading and whole body barometric plethysmography will also be part of the role.
