The ideal candidates are veterinary surgeons with a strong interest in anaesthesia and analgesia, ideally with some previous anaesthesia experience (anaesthesia internship) or that would like to broaden their post-graduate experience in a multidisciplinary referral hospital (rotating internship). These internships are an excellent opportunity for veterinary surgeons interested in enrolling in a residency program later on, as they will gain the required experience working under the supervision of recognised specialists in different areas.

Optivet Referrals is one of the leading Veterinary Ophthalmology hospitals in the UK, with state-of-the-art facilities, that is rapidly expanding and accepts referral surgical and medical cases apart from ophthalmology referrals. The Anaesthesia and Analgesia team consists of a senior anaesthetist (ACVAA diplomate), a resident of the ECVAA and 2 anaesthesia interns.

The majority of the patients are dogs and cats (95%), and the remainder are exotics. The anaesthesia equipment incorporates advanced ventilatory and haemodynamic monitoring, including non-invasive cardiac output, mechanical ventilators, peripheral nerve stimulators (for neuromuscular function monitoring and nerve blocks) and a dedicated ultrasound machine for ultrasound-guided peripheral loco-regional blocks.

The responsibilities of the interns will be to support the veterinary team and the nursing team in the care of all patients. The anaesthesia intern will be expected to contribute to the pre- intra- and post-operative care of patients needing anaesthesia and will also have their own cases under direct supervision by the Diplomate anaesthetist. The rotating intern will be expected to contribute to all aspects of patient care, including medicine, surgery, anaesthesia and ophthalmology. Additionally, the Ophthalmology and Anaesthesia teams hold weekly Journal club meetings, which the interns are expected to attend and the whole Optivet team holds monthly grand rounds and mortality/morbidity rounds.

The internship will have a duration of 12 months. A competitive and attractive benefit package is offered. The interns will be expected to work 40 hours per week and will be expected to do both day and night shifts. Holidays are 25 working days plus statutory bank holidays, and CPD allowance is 5 days. A further 5 days may be taken as unpaid leave should the intern wish to pursue other training opportunities or attend other conferences. There will be a 3-month probationary period, during which the internship may be terminated by either party with a one-week notice period.

Optivet Referrals is located in Havant, Hampshire, in the South of England, near Portsmouth, Chichester, Winchester and Southampton, with easy train access to London city centre and 1 hour 20 min by car to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
