Veterinary Internship
Adelaide SA

If you are a Veterinarian with a particular interest in anaesthesia and dentistry an exciting and unique opportunity exists for you to develop skills in these sectors.

The Adelaide Animal Emergency & Referral Centre (AAERC) is offering an internship in the referral dental department designed to prepare a veterinarian for high-quality service in practice or to progress into advanced training. The primary purpose of an internship is to provide a sound educational program for the intern.

The successful applicant would be prepared to undertake a 12-month commitment to working in the dentistry department in close association with the resident in veterinary dentistry and will play a pivotal role in progressing the department with anaesthesia and dentistry being the key areas of focus.

The position is a full-time position and the working week will be 4 days, working alongside highly skilled nurses and a dental resident. The case load is very varied and ranges from orthodontics, prosthodontics, periodontal surgery and oromaxillofacial surgery.

Previous training in dentistry is not specifically required but may be advantageous. A keen eye for detail, an ability to work independently and as part of a close-knit team, self-motivation and good communication skills are all integral to success in this area.

The successful applicant will hold or be able to hold full qualifications and ability to be fully registered in the state of South Australia. You will also be able to hold a radiation licence in the state of South Australia. You will have been in general practice for at least 2 years prior to undertaking the role.

You can expect to progress your dental knowledge to a level where you can confidently apply the knowledge to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the oral cavity at a high level. You will have access to an extensive range of equipment including a wide range of dental instruments, intraoral radiography, cone beam tomography, piezoelectric surgical instruments, extensive anaesthetic management and monitoring equipment.

You will have close contact with the dental resident, the medicine resident and two specialist surgeons, as well as access to a 24/7 emergency service.

Patient care is pivotal to our success and ongoing education of our professionals is key to achieving this.
