We are looking for three Veterinary Surgeons interested in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia to join our team as an Anaesthesia Intern. DWR can offer you the ideal environment to refine your skills and acquire new ones, under the supervision of six ECVAA Diplomates, two Clinical Fellows and three Anaesthesia Residents.
The ideal candidate is a Veterinary Surgeon with a strong interest in Anaesthesia, who would like to eventually enroll in a residency program.
Caseloads include soft tissue surgery, minimally invasive and interventional procedures, orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery (spine and brain surgery), ophthalmic surgery and anaesthesia for advanced diagnostic procedures (MRI and CT, both on site).
The current Anaesthesia team consists of 8 Senior Anaesthetists (six of which are Dipl.ECVAA or ACVAA), three Residents, three Interns and three Anaesthesia Technicians/Nurses.
The successful candidate will join a team of 39 specialists in various disciplines, working together to offer the best possible quality of care to small animals. The Anaesthesia team holds weekly journal clubs, and case discussion/book reading.
The suitable candidate will spend two thirds of their time providing Anaesthesia for imaging procedures, where knowledge will be consolidated, and the remnant third of the time in theatre, where new skills will be acquired under the close supervision of a Senior Resident or a Diplomate. Interns are encouraged to undertake a research project, under the guidance of a Senior Clinician.
Anaesthesia Interns participate in a 1:4 out of hours on call rota, always directly supervised by a senior member of the team.
Candidates must be MRCVS, or eligible to register with the RCVS, and have the right to work in UK (UK or EU citizenship, or with valid UK working VISA for the duration of the internship). If not of English mother language, candidates must have good knowledge of spoken and written English, preferably certified by examination.
