Internal Medicine Veterinary Internship

Are you a veterinary surgeon with a keen interest in and passion for Internal Medicine?

We are looking for a dedicated, enthusiastic person like you to start a one-year specialist internship at The Ralph in early 2024. The Ralph is an independent multidisciplinary specialist referral centre for dogs and cats in beautiful Marlow, Bucks, west of London (just off the A404 with easy access from the M4 and M40 motorways).

The successful candidate will join our thriving Internal Medicine team. The team comprises six Board-certified Diplomates (two currently on maternity leave), one resident and two other interns. They work closely with our Senior Internal Medicine Nurse (VTS-holder) and other Internal Medicine nurses.

At The Ralph, you will be exposed to a full and varied Internal Medicine caseload. You will have access to various equipment, including all types of endoscopy, fluoroscopy, and CT/MRI. The team ensures opportunities to be fully immersed in all aspects of medical case management, including consultations, diagnostics, hands-on involvement in procedures and inpatient care. We are an enthusiastic and progressive team who thrive when teaching and evolving our clinical practice. Clinical research is actively encouraged and supported.

During the internship, you will participate in our Acute Medicine service and work in close contact with Diplomates in many disciplines. These include Anaesthesia and Analgesia, Cardiology, Dentistry, Diagnostic Imaging, Neurology, Oncology, Ophthalmology and Surgery (Soft Tissue and Orthopaedics) as well as our excellent Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation team. We have a busy Diplomate-led Emergency and Critical Care service from which we receive regular patient transfers.

The Ralph workplace focuses on core values, culture, vision and mission. We emphasise kindness, compassion and empathy for all our communities. As an independent hospital, we have the freedom and flexibility to chart our course. You will be supported by and have regular check-ins with our Resident/Intern Support Officers. If you want to know more, we would love to hear from you.
