Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists Ltd. is a busy, multi-disciplinary, referral-only small animal hospital in Hampshire, UK committed to providing the highest standards of patient care and has an expanding programme of post-graduate training (internships and residencies). We have a varied caseload of unusual and challenging cases and a close-knit enthusiastic team. We continue to expand our clinical services and believe in a team approach to challenging cases.

A vacancy has just become available for a 1-year Neurology/Neurosurgery Intern position. The intern will be supervised and work in daily contact with a neurology team of four ECVN diplomates and two ECVN residents, supported by RCVS, European and American Specialist clinicians in a wide range of disciplines (anaesthesia, cardiology, dermatology, dentistry, oncology, diagnostic imaging, internal medicine, orthopaedics, and soft tissue surgery).

Our hospital contains all the facilities expected of an advanced referral hospital including 1.5T MRI, 64 Slice CT, electrophysiology equipment, a full range of neurosurgical equipment, fluoroscopy, video-endoscopy, and minimally-invasive and orthopaedic surgical equipment. We also have an on-site physiotherapy team.

The neurology intern will work under the supervision of the neurologists and will be involved in the daily care of patients, consultations, diagnostic procedures, and neurosurgeries. The neurology intern will also be encouraged to be involved in clinical research. This internship opportunity is ideal for someone who has previous experience in general practice, with some exposure to neurology, and who also has an interest in pursuing a residency in neurology and neurosurgery.

We strongly support ongoing training and CPD, and as a member of our team you will receive a competitive salary and a benefits package which includes private health care, and a company pension scheme.

Anderson Moores is located in a rural setting in beautiful Hampshire and is close to national and international transport links (Heathrow, Southampton and Bournemouth airports, direct train links to London and the Midlands) and easy access to the south coast for recreational activities.

Candidates must fulfil the following criteria:
  • MRCVS or hold a veterinary degree registrable with the RCVS
  • Successfully completed a 12-month rotating internship and/or have experience in small animal practice in the UK (desirable)
  • Be eligible to work in the United Kingdom.

Applicants to the neurology internship will be selected on the basis of their written application, an interview and satisfactory referee reports.

The successful candidate will ideally start as soon as possible after 7th June 2021.

Please note that due to the location of our practice and the ‘on call’ responsibilities, having your own transport would be an advantage.
