Pride Veterinary Centre in Derby, UK - 2 Anaesthesia Interns- deadline 31 March

The Role

We are looking for two Anaesthesia Interns to join us for a fixed term contract starting on 24th May 2021. In this role you can expect to work 48 hours a week (Mon - Fri) with additional on-call duties depending on your experience level. You will receive training to manage anaesthesia and sedation of varied complexity and will gain competence in skills such as applying various locoregional blocks and vascular access, just to name a few. In addition, you will receive formal and informal teaching through tutorials and case discussions throughout the program. Desire to pursue a residency in anaesthesia is not a requirement. However, this internship program is aimed at preparing the candidate for a residency and the success chance of our past anaesthesia interns in securing a residency position (ECVAA and ACVAA) has been excellent.
