The Glasgow Equine Hospital are looking to appoint Junior Assistant Clinicians (Intern) to deliver and have responsibility for equine clinical patient care under the supervision of experienced and specialist staff. You will participate and assist in the hospital’s activities, which include medicine and surgery services, undergraduate student teaching and our 24/7 emergency service. In addition, you will contribute to the 24/7 operation of the hospital by working a pattern, which includes night shifts (shared with colleagues, aiming for an overall frequency of 1:4). In all these activities, you will support student training by providing instruction, supervision and feedback, for which you will receive appropriate training.
These posts are offered on a 1 year fixed term basis, such that they offer the early stage clinical experience required in preparation for further specialist training, through Residencies and Masters formal training programmes. While appointments may be extended for a short fixed-term period where this would be in the mutual interest, in the interests of ensuring that veterinary career development is supported, and to assist with recruitment to the University’s Residency and Masters Programmes, the one year duration will remain the normal term.
The Glasgow Equine Hospital is accredited by the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme as an Equine Veterinary Hospital, which includes assessment in categories such as client services, in-patient services, diagnostic services, team and professional responsibility and ambulatory services. The Veterinary School has recently been rated 7th in the World and 1st in the UK for quality of education and training. Clinical audit is undertaken formally, and staff maintain clinical and research links with leading veterinary authorities worldwide, in order to expand skill sets.
We welcome applications from candidates with a degree that is registerable with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and practical clinical experience and training with companion animals (this may include undergraduate courses with a significant practical component and periods of extra-mural studies).
