Internships at Anderson Moores

Would you like to work alongside Specialists at the cutting edge of veterinary medicine? Unleash your potential with an Anderson Moores Internship Programme.

We are pleased to offer one-year rotating Internships at our multi-disciplinary referral centre. Internships at Anderson Moores provide an opportunity for career development and can act as a stepping-stone towards small animal residencies and other postgraduate programmes. It also provides an outstanding experience for those wishing to return to general practice. All our Interns have a veterinary degree registerable with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

The programme is designed for highly motivated veterinary surgeons who wish to expand their clinical knowledge, skills and experience, working under supervision in a multidisciplinary referral hospital and participating in providing out-of-hours care for our patients. Second-year Specialist Internships may be available at the end of this fixed-term contract, and we also offer a Residency Training Programme in selected disciplines.

Involvement in clinical research, CPD and externships is actively encouraged. This is complemented by journal clubs, specialist lectures, seminars and small group teaching. We offer our interns the opportunity to assist our veterinary surgeons and Specialists, not just to observe from the sidelines.

What does an Anderson Moores interns do/what should you expect?

Anderson Moores welcomes qualified vets who are eager to further their knowledge and experience as part of their ongoing development. Whether you seek to become a Specialist or to return to General Practice with greater depth and understanding, we are here to help you achieve your goals.

We currently train 10 interns each year, and they rotate through our many disciplines. During the year, they work alongside specialists in training (Residents) and Specialists in all departments. They are involved in all aspects of our patient’s journey, including out-of-hours emergency training. On top of that, they will attend journal clubs and giving presentations to the Anderson Moores team and being encouraged to become involved in clinical research. The rota has been designed to give a good work -life balance and we never ask our interns to work a 12 -hour shift or to do more than four nights in a row and time off is given to recover after working out of hours or weekends.

We welcome both UK and overseas veterinary graduates to join our programme.
