Prof Malcolm Cobb (School of Veterinary Medicine and Science)
The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Nottingham is the first new veterinary school in the UK for over 50 years. It is our intent to make significant leading contributions to both veterinary research and teaching within the context of valid relevance and application to the wider veterinary profession.
The Scarsdale Veterinary Group’s new Pride Veterinary Centre, based in Derby will be the base for an opportunity to experience both first opinion and referral small animal cases. The hospital employs a team of veterinary staff augmented by University appointed veterinary surgeons specialising in medicine, surgery and anaesthesia.
The internship will be spent rotating through both the specialist disciplines in the hospital and spending time helping to deliver the clinical service within the first opinion practice. During the internship the Junior Clinical training scholar will carry out a project on pain assessment in in patients and out patients which will use pain scoring and activity monitors to assess the efficacy of a variety of routinely-used methods of providing analgesia.
The Scholar will be registered for a Post-Graduate Certificate in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery at the University of Nottingham and will, alongside their clinical teaching duties, undertake a research project focussing on pain management and production of a clinical case report.
The program will be of interest to recently qualified veterinary graduates with an interest in small animals and/or pain management. The internship is offered for a fixed twelve month tenure subject to satisfactory progress.
Students must hold a relevant degree in veterinary medicine and full membership of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
The studentship comes with a stipend of £16000 per annum and fees will be paid. There are funding restrictions for non-EU students.
Informal enquiries are encouraged and should be addressed to Prof Malcolm Cobb (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be able to provide more in depth information about the position.
