Graduate clinician programme

Get your small animal veterinary career off to a flying start on our two year Graduate Clinician Programme


The Programme

Our 2 year programme provides you with the opportunity to get your career off to a flying start through in-practice support, mentoring and clinical case-loads.

You will be able to take responsibility for your own 1st opinion caseload, whilst having the confidence of an experienced team to support you, including a designated senior vet as mentor.


The Team

Our clinical team currently consists of certificate holders in Cardiology, Surgery and Medicine, and our association with the University of Nottingham Vet School allows support from Diplomats and visiting specialists in their field.


The Opportunities

With a structured clinical & non-clinical development programme which is designed around each graduate’s individual needs and interests, in conjunction with the University of Nottingham Vet School and other external partners, you will gain the knowledge, confidence and experience you were hoping for from your first job.

Our friendly client base allows us to provide gold-standard first opinion preventative programmes through to advanced diagnostics and treatment, investigating clinical problems thoroughly and expertly, at our purpose built, single-site hospital.

As you might expect, our facilities are state of the art and include CT, which allows for even more complex cases to be handled by the team.

An on-site lab and technician will provide plenty of opportunities for further training, and you will have the full support of an enthusiastic and motivated nursing team.
