  • You must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to stay calm under pressure. Previous experience in small animal practice or an internship is an advantage, but new graduates are actively encouraged to apply, since we consider our programme to provide an excellent footing for any pathway forward in companion animal care.
  • Applicants must be Members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and have an existing right to work in the UK or be eligible to obtain the right to work in the UK without a Skilled Worker Visa. Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor new Skilled Worker Visas for applicants currently outside the UK.


  • The combined orthopaedic and neurology internship is a fixed one-year position. The successful candidate will work under the supervision and guidance of senior clinicians from both specialisms. As an intern, you will play an integral role in the day-to-day management of cases, assisting in some of the world’s most innovative and advanced orthopaedic and neurosurgical procedures, some of which are unique to our hospital, helping work up patients, providing world-class in-patient care and communicating regularly with the families of our patients. The programme includes weekly seminars and journal clubs and offers support and encouragement to prepare and publish scientific research during your internship.
  • We believe that the confluence of a very high caseload, a mixture of routine and advanced neuro and orthopaedic surgery, a fair rota allowing for appropriate study, consistent mentorship and encouragement and a tremendous track record in academic presentations and publications equips our interns as well as, or better than, anywhere in the world for surgical residency positions. This is evidenced by a very large number of previous interns who have now achieved residencies and become boarded surgeons.
