Skills and experience

A general interest in medicine and surgery with a view to doing a certificate in a particular field or a certificate holder would be an advantage. A proficiency in soft tissue surgery to the level of enterectomies, splenectomies, gastrotomies etc is essential. Proficiency in more complex surgeries such as GDV is desirable.

We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon with the skills to perform first opinion consultations and hospital work including soft tissue surgery, medical workups and in-patient care. We find this usually requires at least 3 years’ experience in small animal practice, although some candidates may have reached this point sooner.

MRCVS required.
