Some practices expect their younger vets to do lots of TB testing. It can therefore be hard to get involved with the more progressive farm work.
Since 2006 we have been running a dairy internship to assist the development of farm vets in a supported role. With no night or weekend duties and specific one-to-one bespoke training sessions, most interns have chosen to stay with us at the end of their year.
This position doesn’t normally suit newly qualified vets unless they have significant farm animal experience. This is because after a year or two in practice you are better positioned to get the most from your year. Please call us on 01948 663000 to learn more about the Dairy Internship Programme or to simply discuss your future plans.
