The University of Surrey, School of Veterinary Medicine follows a distributed model for final year teaching and we are actively partnered with leading veterinary practices and local research institutes whose clinicians and scientists participate in teaching throughout the undergraduate curriculum.

The post holder will join the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and our supportive, multidisciplinary teaching team, who are dedicated to equipping the next generation of veterinarians to engage with the challenges of the 21 st Century. They will work closely with technical team, and especially the clinical skills lab managers to ensure the effective and sustainable delivery of clinical skills teaching and the development of new models and supporting resources across species. Supporting and coordinating the development of new clinical skills resources to take account of the evolving needs of the curriculum will be a key aspect of the role, in order to ensure a consistent approach across all disciplines. They would also have the opportunity to contribute to other teaching activities across the programme and institution.

The successful candidate will bring a strong understanding and experience of first opinion practice, appreciation of the range of clinical skills that are essential for new veterinary graduates, and the scope of the RCVS day 1 competencies.
