Be part of one of the UK’s leading Small Animal Orthopaedic Referral Centres.

Applications are invited from veterinary surgeons interested in pursuing a one-year small animal surgical internship at Kentdale. The programme will ideally commence on Monday 12th April 2021, however there is some flexibility with the start date.

The applicant should be highly motivated and have excellent communication skills – a very good command of spoken and written English is essential. The candidate should have had at least two years’ post-graduate experience of working in small animal practice, with at least some of this time spent in the UK, and be keen to join a friendly team environment which is dedicated to the provision of the highest level of care for our patients, clients and referring Veterinary Surgeons. Previous completion of a rotating internship position would be advantageous but is not essential. Our philosophy is very much one of a collaborative culture with friendly co-operation amongst all team members.
