Full-time, with additional clinical out of hours commitments
The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced clinician to join our Farm Animal Practice.
Our Farm Animal Practice provides first-opinion services to local farms (predominantly beef and sheep, with some dairy, pig and smallholders), along with consultancy and referral work by senior members of the team. We also maintain a Farm Animal Hospital primarily for undergraduate veterinary student teaching, but also have isolation hospitalisation facilities for referral cases. We have a mobile hydraulic foot trimming crush, 2 Easiscans, 1 Sector scanner, portable X-ray, practice laboratory facilities, bull testing equipment, in house post-mortem and clinical laboratory facilities, as well as full access to advanced diagnostic and surgical facilities when required and assistance from specialist colleagues. RDSVS is an approved institution for both ECBHM and ECSRHM Residency programmes.
Working closely with colleagues, you will be active in the development and management of the Farm Animal Practice and Hospital, and the provision of its veterinary services. You will teach undergraduate students in all aspects of farm animal husbandry and disease. You will also be involved in, and help develop our consultancy and referral caseload. The Farm Animal Section has a strong and diverse clinical research programme. We would particularly welcome applicants with a research interest in parasitology. This provides opportunity to support development towards a clinical specialism, such as ECBHM or ECSRHM, or continue clinical-orientated research
