Dick White Referrals can offer you the ideal environment to refine your skills and acquire new ones, under the supervision of six ECVAA Diplomates, two Clinical Fellows and three anaesthesia residents.

The ideal candidate is a veterinary surgeon with a strong interest in anaesthesia, who would like to eventually enroll in a residency program. An attractive benefit package is offered.

The successful candidate will join a team of 30 specialists in various disciplines, working together to offer the best possible quality of care to small animals. The anaesthesia team holds weekly journal clubs, and case discussion/book reading. The suitable candidate will be involved only with small animals anaesthesia, and spend two thirds of his/her time providing anaesthesia for imaging procedures, where knowledge will be consolidated, and the remnant third of the time in theatre, where new skills will be acquired under the close supervision of a senior resident or a Diplomate. Interns are encouraged to undertake a research project, under the guidance of a senior clinician. Anaesthesia interns participate in a 1:4 out of hours on call rota, always directly supervised by a senior member of the team.
