Small Animal Internship Programme

Be part of one of the UKs leading small animal referral centres!

A position has become available on our rotating structured internship program to ideally in July 2021, although there is some flexibility with the start date.

As part of Willows’ Small Animal Internship, the successful applicant will enter a detailed training programme assisting in the throughput of our orthopaedic, spinal, ophthalmic, neurological, medical, oncological, cardiology, dermatology and soft tissue patients, as well as helping with their ongoing management and care.

Our philosophy is very much one of friendly co-operation between all members of the team with a collaborative culture between clinicians working across every specialism.

Willows is extremely proud to have a strong track record of Interns going on to undertake specialist training in different disciplines. To this end, Interns are mentored and supported in undertaking clinical research, presentations and publications.
