Vet Surgeon – Cutting Edge Programme

Up to £58,000 DOE plus benefits

Cutting Edge – your first step into Emergency and Critical Care

We have opportunities for Vet Surgeons who are looking to enter the exciting world of emergency and critical care. If you have at least six months post-qualification small animal experience and are confident performing routine procedures on your own, Cutting Edge could be perfect for you. Vets Now has the largest ECC caseload in Europe – perfect for learning and development. We have full time opportunities across our network of 58 clinics in the UK – we’ll be led by you in regards to where you want to work.

Over 300 hours of CPD designed by Vets for Vets

Designed by ECC diplomate Amanda Boag, Cutting Edge is a comprehensive induction that will equip you with the skills and confidence you need to work sole charge in an emergency environment. The ten week training combines lectures and interactive seminars with practical training and surgery. The next intake of Cutting Edge is 2nd March 2020. Topics include but not limited to;

  • Abdominal Surgery
  • Blood Smears
  • Emergency Diagnostics
  • Neurological Emergencies
  • Orthopaedic & Spinal Emergencies
  • Practical Ultrasound
  • Suturing Skills
  • Shock and Fluids
  • Toxicology
  • Wound Management

Earn while you learn

We’ll cover your accommodation costs whilst you’re in the support office and you’ll be paid a basic salary of £40,000 per annum while training – you’ll be a Vets Now employee from day one of the course. From week 11, your salary will increase and will vary depending on the clinic you choose to work in. The first three weeks of the programme are based in our support office in Scotland. The next four weeks will be spent in a clinic alongside an experienced emergency clinician for supported shifts. The remaining three weeks are spent back in the support office.
