About the Position
Our Senior Clinical Training Scholarship (SCTS) provides an outstanding opportunity to study for a postgraduate qualification in Medical Oncology. We have one scholarship available to start in January 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter, and one scholarship available to start in July 2022. The Scholarship will provide a solid foundation in all aspects of small animal medical oncology, including experience in radiation therapy, internal medicine, cardiology, soft tissue surgery, neurology, clinical pathology and gross pathology. The Queens Veterinary School Hospital is an approved training centre for both medical and radiation oncology. The main aim is to prepare the candidate for the examination for the European Diploma in Small Animal Oncology.
The Scholarship is for one year in the first instance, renewable for periods of one year up to a total of three years. It is subject to an initial monitoring period of six months, and to review on an annual basis.
The training programme requires participation in the Department’s clinical service, including the out-of-hours rota and first opinion practice, in addition to small-group teaching of veterinary students.
The ability to take up this Scholarship is contingent upon you being able to evidence your right to work in the UK, or through gaining the right to work via the UK immigration system. Evidence will need to be provided before an offer can be made. Regrettably, this Scholarship is not suitable for sponsorship via the Skilled Worker or Temporary Worker visa routes as the minimum requirements cannot be met.
Applicants must be a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, or hold a veterinary degree qualifying them for membership. Completion of a recognised internship or a minimum of two years’ experience in small animal practice is essential.
