The Glasgow Equine Hospital are looking to appoint a Junior Assistant Clinician to deliver equine clinical and care service under the supervision of experienced and fully qualified staff. You will participate and assist in the hospital’s activities, which include medicine and surgery services, undergraduate student teaching and 24/7 operation. 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 1:3). In all these activities, you will support student training and receive appropriate training yourself as required.

This 1-year, full time position will count as an Internship for future residency applications and successful candidates will receive a certificate of completion of internship. The posts offer the early stage clinical experience required as vets prepare for further specialist training, for example through residencies and masters formal training programmes. A CPD budget (and time) is afforded for training, alongside a generous pension scheme. There may also be an opportunity to conduct short clinical research studies. 

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).
