Dechra Pre-residency Fellowship in Small Animal Medicine

Dechra Pre-residency Fellowship in Small Animal Medicine

Dechra Pre-residency Fellowship in Small Animal Medicine

A one year post graduate studentships is now available for Members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons who wish to develop their skills in small animal medicine and clinical research.

This post is funded for one year and there is no guarantee of further funding from either Dechra or the University of Glasgow. It is however expected that successful completion of this Pre-Residency Fellowship would put the individual in a strong position to apply for such residencies that became available at the University of Glasgow or other similar institutions. The successful applicant would be allowed to register as a resident with the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.

Suitable candidates will include those who have already completed a rotating small animal internship and who have demonstrated a commitment to a career in small animal medicine by publication and presentation. In the event of more than one candidate applying for the studentship then selection will be based on academic interview and review of curriculum vitae.

Although the Pre-Residency Fellow will not be expected to develop new avenues of clinical research, preference will be given to candidates with pre-existing and funded projects who will be supported to continue these where possible.

For further information please contact Professor Ian Ramsey (Ian.Ramsey@glasgow.ac.uk).

The deadline for applications is 18 August 2016. Further details are available upon request.
