Like many veterinary practices, we are actively involved in training the next generation of vets.
Veterinary students are required as part of their university training to spend a significant portion of their time during and between terms undergoing further "practical" training with veterinary practices - Extra Mural Study (formerly "seeing practice", for those of us of more senior years!). As a large mixed practice, it is not unusual for us to have multiple students with us for a large percentage of the year.
Veterinary students wishing to 'see practice' with us can now book with us via the VetEMS website, run by XLVets. Please click on the logo to request a booking (website will open in a new window).
We also receive a large number of requests from school and college 'pre-veterinary' students wishing to find a placement for their work experience. These requests should be made via our Practice Manager, Miss Kennedy.
Please note, however, that we receive many more requests for such placements than we have availability. We give preference to university undergraduate students, and all our availability is booked many months (sometimes a year or so!) in advance. We encourage younger students considering becoming a vet to gain experience with animals via such means as work on farms, at stables, kennels or other similar placements. Such experience will be invaluable when applying for a veterinary degree course.
