Rotating Internship Program

About Singapore Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital

VES Hospital now offers a 12 months rotating internship program. Rotating internships are designed for highly motivated veterinary professionals who wish to develop their skills, experience and knowledge by working under supervision in a multi-disciplinary referral hospital. Interns rotate through all clinical services in the hospital.

The role:

The intern will experience a diverse caseload and have both direct and indirect case management, with opportunities for primary, emergency, critical care, referral medicine, and surgical cases, including diagnostic work ups and treatments. The emphasis is on training by doing, with ample opportunity to consult with senior staff. The intern will rotate on 4 or 5 weekly blocks through each department. As experience is gained, the intern will take on a greater level of responsibility.

This is a full-time, fixed-term (12 month) position.
