So with all my exams done, the next task is to get that very first job, and treat that very first patient. Seeing as my diary has got me this far, I am going post what I am looking for here, in the hopes there is a practice out there that can offer me what I want. Location within UK is not important and I should have my MRCVS at the end of July all going well.
- A surgery a day
- Qualified RVN support staff
- First opinion practice with good equipment and facilities
- OOH would be good to get some emergency medicine experience
- Experienced team mentor/backup to learn from (certificate holders a bonus!)
My interest is surgery and I plan to pursue specialisation in this eventually, however I really want to spend some time in general practice to develop my consultation skills before looking at moving on. I’m confident with some surgery and opening / closing abdomen however have no experience with bitch spays (i’ve only done pyos) or flank spays in cats.
If you feel that you can offer me a great first job please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk further.
