PDSA is calling for applicants for its newly launched graduate programme.
The UK-wide Veterinary Surgeon Graduate Programme is open to all new veterinary graduates, including those graduating in 2013, with five training places up for grabs.
It will be a year-long course, structured around the RCVS' Professional Development Phase. However, the charity hopes those completing the programme will want to continue their careers with the organisation.
Richard Hooker, PDSA director of veterinary services, said: “On average, our PetAid hospitals see around 5,695 pets each working day – including consultations, emergency treatment, surgical procedures, through to preventive measures and education on pet well-being.
"The Veterinary Surgeon Graduate Programme will give our cohort the opportunity to gain invaluable small animal practice with the UK’s leading veterinary charity, home to some of the most experienced and long-serving vets in our profession.”
The five successful applicants will start with PDSA in September 2013 and will be based at either Glasgow East, Bradford, Liverpool Kirkdale, Stoke-on-Trent or Bow PetAid hospitals, as well as working at other PDSA hospitals in the surrounding area to build up their experience.
Applications are open until March 29, 2013. For further information and to apply visit the PDSA website or contact PDSA at email@example.com
