Resident in Small Animal Surgery

Apply by: 04 September 2017
Department: Residency

Fitzpatrick Referrals, a busy, specialist referral-only small animal veterinary practice based in Surrey, UK, is opening two ECVS-residency positions, starting in February 2018. These three-year positions involve balanced rotations at practices specialising in orthopaedics, neurosurgery, oncology and soft tissue. The successful applicants will be trained by and work alongside a number of ECVS, ACVS, ECVN, ECVIM, ACVSMR and ECVDI diplomates.

We have a reputation for surgical innovation and important clinical research with very large case numbers and we attract some of the most interesting and complex cases from both primary and secondary care. Whilst we operate routine cases daily, we also manufacture and deploy customised implant systems weekly and have spearheaded the development of many new techniques.

We have state-of-the-art CT and MRI facilities and this year will begin a new initiative, FIRST, the Fitzpatrick Institute for the Restoration of Skeletal Tissue. This is a purpose-built centre which will integrate regenerative medicine and custom implants for the treatment of spinal and orthopaedic disease.

Applicants must have completed one or several rotating internships or equivalent, have no restrictions on employment in the United Kingdom and be in a position to be a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons on the proposed starting date (5th February 2018). Excellent command of the English language is mandatory.

Applications consisting of an up-to-date curriculum vitae, two letters of reference and a cover letter must be sent electronically to [email protected] by Monday 4th September 2017. For informal enquiries contact [email protected].
