An onsite veterinary diagnostic laboratory enables direct contact with pathologists for case discussion and best outcomes for patients. As part of the ECC team you will enjoy the strong support of a lively group of experienced academic specialists for managing challenging cases, and case discussion daily with input from all staff. 

The CAHC provides a clinical training environment for final year veterinary students working under the close supervision of experienced veterinary surgeons, nurses and support staff. You will have the opportunity to involve highly motivated final year veterinary students in clinical case management and by providing students with additional learning opportunities where appropriate, and demonstrating the highest standard of clinical and professional behaviour, you will be making an important contribution to the clinical education of the next generation of veterinarians. 

To be successful you will need:

  • Veterinary qualification with eligibility to be registered as a veterinarian in South Australia.
  • Demonstrated veterinary experience in first opinion or emergency services.
  • Demonstrated high level communication and interpersonal skills including the ability to work effectively with a diverse range of clients and team members.
