Internships at B&W Equine Hospital
B&W Equine Hospital provide an Veterinary Internship Programme, which consists of an 18 month position based predominantly within our Equine Hospital, but with a requirement to do a small amount of ambulatory work.
We have 3 Interns at any one time and they work closely along side our team of specialist vets, nurses, nursing assistants, technicians and yard staff. They are responsible for the day-to-day care of the hospital in-patients, anaesthesia and assisting the hospital clinicians. They gain exposure to a wide variety of disciplines, including anaesthesia, care of the hospitalised horse, client communication, internal medicine, orthopeadics, diagnostic imaging, dentistry, laboratory work, and ambulatory practice.
Out of hours duties are shared equally on a 1 in 3 rota, with on-site accommodation provided. Out of hours the Interns are one of a team of vets and nurses on-call for the hospital. When not on duty accommodation off site is available as part of the package.
Interns are expected to attend and take part in regular ‘journal club’ meetings and are encouraged to undertake a research project during their time as an Intern.
On completion of their internship, most of our Interns go on to work in equine ambulatory practice, (with several staying within B&W Equine Vets!), and some have also gone on to further specialisation, securing Residency positions, both within the UK and abroad.
We prefer applicants for the Internship to have 6+ months of post-graduate experience. Spending time at B&W Equine Hospital, prior to application for the role, is encouraged. Applicants for the position must hold a veterinary degree that is registerable with the RCVS and applicants should send a CV and letter of intent only in response to an advertisement. Due to the high number of speculative applications received we are unable to hold CVs on record. Internship post usually start in October and March/April and are advertised on the BEVA jobs website only.
