About the hospital
ARH Brisbane, a specialist and emergency hospital at Sinnamon Park in Brisbane’s west, opened 5 years ago and has grown steadily since. Our purpose-designed, state of the art hospital offers specialist services in small animal surgery, internal medicine, neurology, and surgical and medical oncology, in conjunction with an after-hours emergency service. Facilities include 3 operating theatres, digital radiography, CT and MRI scanners, arthroscopy, fluoroscopy, endoscopy and an in-house diagnostic laboratory.
About the internship
Interns work under the guidance of our small animal surgical specialists assisted by experienced nursing staff. Interns also have close involvement with our other professional services, including specialists in diagnostic imaging and critical care.
Interns are expected to participate in daily rounds and weekly journal club or case presentations. They are encouraged to complete a published work during their internship and, if eligible, to work towards completion of the ANZCVS small animal surgery membership examination.
What we can offer
This internship offers an outstanding opportunity for a highly motivated, hardworking, experienced and professional individual to work and learn in a busy and friendly referral hospital.
