  • or would like to be paid for an extended externship during your residency,
  • or if you are an alternative resident and would like paid experience in an ECVAA approved training centre,
  • or if you are between jobs and fancy working in Dublin / Ireland!!

We would also consider a veterinarian with a proven interest in anaesthesia, who would like to gain suitable experience prior to applying for a residency. Ideally you will already have some experience with anaesthesia of small and large animals and will be capable of joining the after-hours roster.

You must hold a veterinary degree which can be registered with the Veterinary Council of Ireland (please check their website if in doubt www.vci.ie ).

While working in clinics you will be supervised by an ECVAA boarded anaesthetist and will join the anaesthesia team of two academics, three residents, one small animal intern and two nurses.

As the only veterinary school in Ireland we have a very mixed case load in small animals, from first opinion cases to tertiary referrals. Our equine case load includes a significant number of out of hours emergency cases.

Salary / stipend will depend on experience and length of availability.
