About the organization

A better future for everyone. This ambition motivates our scientists in executing their leading research and inspiring teaching. At Utrecht University, the various disciplines collaborate intensively towards major societal themes. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth, Institutions for Open Societies, Life Sciences and Sustainability.

The Department Clinical Sciences (DCS) is part of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and includes a training institute, research institute and a fully equipped academic veterinary teaching hospital, the  ‘Universiteitskliniek Utrecht’. The staff are dedicated to providing excellence in patient care and are responsible for daily clinical supervision and teaching for veterinary students during their Master’s rotations. Tenured staff combines an active role in patient care and (pre-)clinical teaching with involvement in research projects that are embedded in one of the focus themes (including locomotion, regenerative medicine, oncology and genetics).

The university clinic boasts a large fully equipped small animal hospital with six ORs, an ECVECC run ICU and medium care unit, and busy medical and surgical services (including orthopaedics, neurology, cardiology, dentistry, oncology, but also behavioural consultations, dermatology and ophthalmology). Immediately neighboring the small animal clinic, the university complex also comprises a busy equine hospital with more than 100 box stalls, an OR suite with four ORs including a dedicated OR for standing procedures, a 24/7 neonatal foal ICU (in season) and a 24/7 emergency referral clinic as well as an ambulatory equine service.

The Diagnostic Imaging Department supports both equine and small animal clinics, and this department alone sees over 2,000 patients requiring sedation or anaesthesia annually. This department also boasts a 1.5T MRI and 64-slice CT scanner, scintigraphy, state-of-the-art digital x-ray and ultrasonography, as well as an angiography suite for interventional cardiology procedures. Annually in the small animal hospital alone approximately 13,000 outpatient consultations take place and over 3,500 anaesthetics are performed. The equine hospital performs approximately 400 elective procedures, 80-100 exploratory laparotomies, and 100 standing CTs annually, with patients from within the Netherlands and abroad.

The hospital’s anesthesiology team supports both the small animal and equine clinics and performs all sedations and general anaesthetics needed for diagnostic imaging and surgical procedures as well as radiotherapy, giving staff the opportunity to truly work across the breadth of their specialty. The team consists of two European specialists in anaesthesiology (Dip. ECVAA), one board-eligible anaesthetist, two ECVAA residents, four anaesthesia interns who only work in the small animal clinics, and three equine interns. In addition, we have two part-time veterinary anaesthetists as well as three dedicated anaesthesia nurses and three anaesthesia technicians complementing the small animal anaesthesia service.
