CPD opportunities

This page will contain details of any career and personal development opportunities that may arise at the Clockhouse Veterinary Hospital. 

Our policy

Veterinary students
Lansdown Veterinary Surgeons welcome veterinary students to undertake Extra Mural Studies. We do, however, limit the numbers to two students at any one time. In view of this placements need to be booked a long way in advance.

We give preference to students who are able to spend a considerable time with us, even if split up over a one-two year period. Trust and confidence between practitioner and student is essential if the student is to maximise his/her training, so this is reliant on an extended period of contact.

We do not necessarily have accommodation available for visiting students and hence local friends or relatives are an advantage.

Post Graduate students
Lansdown Veterinary Surgeons welcomes post graduate students. The Clockhouse Veterinary Hospital is one of only two sites in the UK recognised by the RCVS for the training of Zoo Medicine Diplomate candidates.

Work Experience
We regret that as a recognised centre for the training of undergraduate, graduate and post graduate students we are unable to accept school children for work experience.

Vacancies arise from time to time for veterinary nurses. If you are currently looking for a post working in companion animal, avian and exotic please register your interest by clicking here.

You should also search for other web-sites offering veterinary nursing vacancies, eg Novartis.
