Applications are invited for a position as first-year resident in our
American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) approved residency
programme.

The programme is full-time and is normally for three years. It provides in-depth training in veterinary dentistry, oral surgery and other supported disciplines. It is intended to prepare the resident for credentials, examination and certification by the AVDC as a diplomate specialist.

Our practice is located in North Berwick, close to Edinburgh, Scotland. North Berwick is a small, scenic, harbour town with outstanding leisure opportunities and benefits from a direct rail line into Edinburgh and beyond. A virtual tour of the clinic and other background information is available on our website http://dentalvets.co.uk/

Our caseload is 100% referral and draws from the North of England and all of Scotland. The majority of our case load is dogs and cats. Zoo animals are treated on occasion and the resident will have opportunities to become familiar with other species.

Applicants must have completed a veterinary degree acceptable to the AVDC plus a minimum of one year in small animal/mixed practice or a rotating internship. They must be registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to practice in the UK. Good communication skills (in English) and a strong work ethic are essential as teaching, research and self-study is an integral part of the residency.

The start date will be early 2017 and will commence with a three month internship.

A letter of intent, current CV and three professional letters of reference should be submitted.
