Residency in Equine Surgery. B&W Equine & Bell Equine, UK.
ECVS Residency in Equine Surgery, CVS Equine, UK
CVS Group plc is one of the leading veterinary service providers in the UK. CVS Equine now employs over 20 equine diploma holders and aims to provide outstanding equine veterinary clinical care, delivered with an excellent client experience, in the best working environment for their employees.
CVS Equine invites applications for a three-year ECVS approved Residency programme in Equine Surgery. This is a collaborative programme run by B & W Equine Hospital, in Berkeley, Gloucestershire, and Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic (BEVC), near Maidstone, Kent. Each site performs around 400 surgical procedures and around 450 in-depth lameness investigations every year. Between these sites the successful candidate will benefit from the supervision of 6 board certified surgeons, 5 diplomats in internal medicine and 4 diplomats in diagnostic imaging.
The majority of the programme will be completed at B&W and BEVC, with at least 96 weeks split equally between the two hospitals. The successful candidate will be involved in the admission, diagnostic investigation and management of routine and emergency surgical and orthopaedic cases, providing a high quality service to clients and referring veterinary surgeons. Off-clinics time will be dedicated to research, time at other equine hospitals, rotations in anaesthesia, internal medicine, pathology and diagnostic imaging, continued professional development (CPD), and annual leave.
The research component of the programme will be supervised by the University of Nottingham, with the Resident registered on a three year Masters in Veterinary Surgery (MVS). Throughout this research degree, the Resident will benefit from education and training with the aim to enable them to become an independent researcher with a range of transferable skills.
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated, team player with excellent communication skills and at least 1-2 years experience in equine practice. Potential applicants are invited to visit both hospitals prior to submitting an application. The proposed start date of the programme is 1st July 2019. Closing date for applications: 18th January 2019.
