Job Details

We have an opportunity for an RCVS registered veterinary surgeon to work as an intern in a busy orthopaedic referral centre alongside an RCVS/ECVS specialist in small animal surgery. In the role, you can expect to work 48 hours a week and 1:3 Saturday mornings. You will spend 70% of your time working with our orthopaedic team and 30% of your time managing your own caseload in the general practice side of our clinic.

Edinburgh International Airport, one hour away, offers convenient access to domestic and international destinations.

The practice benefits from being purpose-built, affording a very pleasant working environment with well-maintained facilities and is fully equipped with all the usual toys, including CT, and have recently invested in an Arthrex 4K arthroscopy system. Our current case load for orthopaedics varies between 20-25 new cases a week.

Our orthopaedic department is currently comprised of two clinicians: an ECVS Diplomate and a Cert AVP Holder. In addition to this, our general practice has a team of experienced vets and both departments benefit from a team of exceptional nurses and support staff, most of whom have been with the practice many years.

Applicant Requirements:

•             Member of the RCVS
•             One year of clinical experience in general practice
•             Good English Language, both verbal and written
•             Good communication skills
•             A strong interest in orthopaedics is highly beneficial
