To be considered for this position you are expected to have experience in the delivery of clinical services and tertiary teaching. Also, have completed an equine or large animal internal medicine residency and ideally be board certified.
About the practice:
The Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) provides a range of first opinion, ambulatory, and specialist veterinary care across all animal species to the general public and referring veterinarians. The VTH has excellent facilities including an outstanding Equine Health and Performance Centre, Companion Animal Health Centre, and an on-site Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. We have dedicated teaching and animal handling facilities and a herd of approximately 30 teaching horses. We are continuing to develop the clinical services, including plans for commencing residency programs in the near future and developing our research capabilities.
The large animal team consists of internal medicine specialists, surgeons, an equine sports medicine specialist, junior/hospital veterinarians, and an ambulatory clinician. We are supported by a team of experienced nurses and anesthetists. Whilst the bulk of our caseload is equine related, we also provide primary opinion services to the local farm animal owners.
The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is located on a 1600 hectare property at the Roseworthy campus. The campus is situated on the doorstep of the Barossa Valley – an internationally renowned wine region, beaches, sporting activities, benchmark schools, schools, and shopping facilities. It is South Australia’s only veterinary school and constitutes a team of leading animal and veterinary science academics.
To be successful you will need:
- Completion or eligibility to qualify for board certification (or ANZCVS Fellowship) in equine or large animal internal medicine.
- Experience in delivery of specialist equine internal medicine clinical services.
- Tertiary teaching experience in equine internal medicine.
- Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to work within a large multi-disciplinary team.
- Passion and drive to help build the clinical caseload within the Veterinary Teaching.
The successful candidate should hold a Veterinary qualification with eligibility to be registered as a veterinarian in South Australia.
