Veterinary Surgeon

Surgery Information / Job Description

We are looking for someone who has a keen interest for Neurology and would like to further their skills and knowledge whilst working in a fast paced referral practice. If this sounds like you then we would love to hear from you!
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.

We have just opened a Neurology/Neurosurgery Intern position for 1 year. The intern will be supervised and work in daily contact with four neurologists supported by RCVS, European and American Specialist clinicians in a wide range of disciplines (anaesthesia, cardiology, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, internal medicine, orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery and physiotherapy).

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. 

Person Specification

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 and with some exposure to neurology, and also has an interest in pursuing a residency in neurology and neurosurgery. The internship will mainly provide training in clinical neurology, neurosurgery, electrodiagnostic, and neuroimaging.


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, reimbursement of pet insurance, Pets at Home discount and a company pension scheme.

Anderson Moores is located in a rural setting but 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 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 be expected to start in November 2020.

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

Please submit your CV together with a short covering letter and the name and contact details of 2 references to Zoe Karimi at recruitment@andersonmoores.com.
