We welcome applications for EMS from enthusiastic students in their clinical years of training.

Prior to a student arriving we will formulate an itinerary for the duration of their stay, trying our best to accommodate a range of routine and emergency work seen with a variety of vets. If there is an area of particular interest we will try and accommodate this in a student’s visit.

We ask students to contact us detailing what sort of work they’d like to see with us, when they’d be interested in visiting us, and a phone number so we can easily get in contact and request a copy of your CV. Please put ‘Farm Office – EMS’ in the ‘subject’ field of the form.

Although we do not provide accommodation at the practice we can assist you in finding a suitable place to stay.
