We are a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) approved equine hospital.
The extern programme has been running since we opened purpose built, on site residential accommodation for visiting students and vets in 2008. The extern scheme caters for final year veterinary students, who wish to focus their veterinary studies on equine surgery and medicine. Our externs work alongside the established intern programme and will be given responsibilities for in-patient care under the supervision of our clinicians and interns. Externs are invited to spend two weeks with us for any one booking.
Practical details for externs:
The programme has become very popular and the waiting list can be long as these opportunities are a very beneficial part of equine veterinary training. We have specific links with certain universities who send their final year students to Bell Equine as part of their specialist equine training. These students have priority. If you would like to apply for an externship, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org giving a list of the dates that you are available. Your application should be supported by one referee, who should be a veterinary surgeon and we would ask that this reference is sent with your application, together with two up to date photographs.
