Job Description: Do you have a particular interest in small animal orthopaedics and spinal surgery? If so this may be the role for you.
We are currently working on an opportunity for an internship at a busy, dedicated small animal orthopaedic and spinal referral practice with a veterinary team comprising of two RCVS Specialists in Small Animal Surgery, one RCVS Advanced Practitioner and one Board Eligible Surgeon. The practice has recently relocated to a new building with excellent facilities (3 operating theatres and on-site CT) in a beautiful rural setting on the Surrey / Sussex border. A mobile MRI scanner regularly visits the practice. The team are very well equipped to deal with a full range of orthopaedic procedures ((THR, TPLO, CUE, arthroscopy etc).
The role of the intern is to assist the referral surgeons in the diagnosis and surgical management of referred cases. You will have an important role in the perioperative care of surgical cases under the supervision of the referral surgeons and will gain a lot of experience in all aspects of case management.

The successful candidate will be keen and enthusiastic with a strong desire to learn and work effectively within a team of Vets and nurses.
Salary will depend on experience (30-34k pa) plus 2,000 per year CPD allowance (5 days). Holiday entitlement 33 days inclusive of bank holidays. Contributory pension and private medical care.
