Vet student looking for an EMS placement?


We feel a duty to support and develop the veterinary profession of the future, and we invest time each year to provide the best possible learning experience through EMS that we can. Each year during Easter and Summer we accept a limited number of students to see practice.


During a placement here, our EMS students are encouraged to work across species on a variety of projects by learning and applying our AnimalTransactions models, techniques and methodologies whilst considering best practise, and ways in which they can apply their learning for veterinary intervention and within animal practice.


Whilst on placement students attend a minimum of 10 lecture workshops with Sarah Bird, with additional workshops, self study and one to one support to reach their potential.


We work closely with leading universities to ensure we embed learning practice and methodologies in line with their programs, but further seek to develop and embed students learning and develop practical hands on experience


2 week placements available for the following weeks.
