Cambridge Veterinary School

Studying at Cambridge



We have an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic and hardworking veterinary students to undergo a rotating externship in small animal clinical studies for up to 10 weeks in The Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital, University of Cambridge.

We expect our externs to become integral members of the hospital team and hope they will get actively involved with case management and the running of the hospital. We are looking for dedicated and knowledgeable students in or about to enter their final year of studies (the externships are most suited to students just before graduating). Excellent spoken and written English is a pre-requisite as you will be expected to communicate to staff and students about clinical cases throughout the programme. Ideally we are looking for 5-7 externs to join us for the entire 10 week period, but we would consider people available for between 4-8 weeks if the selected weeks are situated at the beginning and the end of the period. Basic accommodation can be provide.
