Pride Veterinary Centre BH2069 - Small Animal Internal Medicine Resident - Application deadline: Friday 15th January 2021

The Role

Our multidisciplinary referral hospital is currently taking applications for an ECVIM-CA residency position in small animal internal medicine.  The successful candidate will join our established and dynamic team of 4 ECVIM-CA & ACVIM internal medicine Diplomates, 1 ECVIM-CA residency trained clinician, 3 ECVIM-CA residents, 2 discipline specific interns, dedicated nurses and a workflow coordinator, in a purpose built, state of the art referral hospital in Derby. 

 We are looking for a highly motivated, self-driven, fast-learning and inquisitive clinician with a passion for clinical work, clinical research and teaching.

Our residency program offers the benefits of a busy referral hospital with a varied case load, while also providing ample off-clinics time for externships, research, study-leave and holiday. Participation in an ‘out of hours’ rota is also expected.

Our hospital works in conjunction with the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary medicine, offering opportunities for collaborative work and teaching of the final year student during their clinical rotations. We also work alongside a Vets@Night service, and benefit from a dedicated leadership structure and extensive on-site support teams including Finance, Customer Care and HR.

Pride Veterinary Centre is set in the heart of the prize-winning Pride Park development which boasts a plethora of modern sporting arenas and commercial enterprises.
