The School of Animal & Veterinary Sciences is seeking an Internal Medicine Clinician (equine or large animal, with an equine focus). The successful candidate will contribute to clinical service provision (including after hours) and teaching (clinical and didactic), with the option to contribute to research. To be considered for this position you are expected to have experience in the delivery of clinical services and tertiary teaching. You must have a veterinary degree that is registerable with the Veterinary Surgeons Board of South Australia, should have completed an equine or large animal internal medicine residency and ideally be board certified.

About the Practice:

The Roseworthy Veterinary Hospital (RVH) provides a range of first opinion, ambulatory, and specialist veterinary care across all animal species to the general public and referring veterinarians. The RVH has excellent facilities including an outstanding Large Animal Hospital, Companion Animal Hospital, and an on-site Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. We have dedicated teaching and animal handling facilities and a herd of approximately 30 teaching horses. We are continuing to develop the clinical services, including plans for commencing residency programs in the near future, and developing our research capabilities.

The large animal team consists of internal medicine specialists, surgeons, an equine sports medicine specialist, junior/ hospital veterinarians, and ambulatory clinicians. We are supported by a team of experienced nurses and anaesthetists. Whilst the bulk of our caseload is equine related, we also provide primary opinion services to the local hobby farm animal owners.

The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is located on a 1600 hectare property at the Roseworthy campus. The campus is situated on the doorstep of the Barossa Valley - an internationally renowned wine region, beaches, sporting activities, benchmark [SF1] schools, and shopping facilities.  It is South Australia's only veterinary school and constitutes a team of leading animal and veterinary science academics. 

To be successful you will need:

  • A qualification in Veterinary Science or equivalent degree that is acceptable for registration in South Australia.
  • Completion or eligibility to qualify for board certification (or ANZCVS Fellowship) in equine or large animal internal medicine.
  • Experience in delivery of specialist equine internal medicine clinical services.
  • Tertiary teaching experience in equine internal medicine.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to work within a large multi-disciplinary team.
  • Passion and drive to help build the clinical caseload within the Veterinary Teaching.

Relocation assistance may be available for the right candidate.
