Intern in Veterinary Anaesthesia

University College Dublin Veterinary Hospital (UCDVH) invites applications for the position of  small animal anaesthesia intern starting May 29th 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The application deadline is 13th February 2022.

University College Dublin Veterinary Hospital is located on a 330 acre purpose-built landscaped campus. Dublin city centre is 4 km north of the campus and the coast 20 minute away on foot.  The University campus has good transport links to the city and surrounding areas.

University College Dublin Veterinary Hospital has 3 board certified anaesthetists, 1 anaesthesia registrar, 3 anaesthesia residents, 1 anaesthesia intern and 3 anaesthesia nurses.  The anaesthetic caseload at the hospital is very varied with an unusually high proportion of very sick cases.  The anaesthesia interns working at UCDVH will have the opportunity to anaesthetise a broad range of cases ranging from ASA 1 – 4, competency permitting.  All intern anaesthetic plans will be discussed with a senior anaesthetist prior to induction of anaesthesia and the intern will receive considerable support at the beginning of their internship.  This support will be reduced as the intern’s confidence and skills increase throughout the internship.  Case load permitting, the anaesthesia intern may attend and present at our weekly journal club, and they will be encouraged to give one anaesthesiarelated presentation during their internship year at our weekly resident seminar.

The UCDVH anaesthesia internship helps prepare junior veterinarians for a career in veterinary anaesthesia.  The majority of our past interns are now residents or specialists in anaesthesia or related fields (Emergency and Critical Care and Pharmacology).

Highcroft Veterinary Referrals (https://highcroftvetreferrals.co.uk) and B & W Equine Hospital (https://www.bwequinevets.co.uk) are pleased to announce an opening for a Resident in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia to join the current anaesthesia team. This three-year ECVAA approved standard residency program will be split between Highcroft Veterinary Referrals to achieve the small animal and exotics caseload and B & W Equine Hospital (approximately 30 miles away) for the equine caseload.  Both practices are large specialist referral hospitals in the south west of the UK and offer a growing and interesting caseload across disciplines. The current anaesthesia team at Highcroft is comprised of 3 ECVAA specialists, one board-eligible clinician, one anaesthesia intern and a solid group of experienced anaesthesia nurses. The anaesthesia and analgesia specialists will also provide supervision in equine anaesthesia at B & W Equine Hospital. The farm animal caseload required for the residency programme will be met by supervised externships at other centres.

An additional specialized internship in anaesthesia is desirable, but not essential. Experience in equine anaesthesia will also be valuable.

The successful candidate will be expected to participate in a 1 in 4 out of hours rota split between Highcroft and B & W equine.
