We have a close collaboration amongst each other as well as with our referring veterinarians.
As a second line clinic we have a strong focus on internal medicine and surgery.

The position:

  • Follow up on hospitalised and ICU patients from the Internal medicine department, including performing necessary diagnostics and installing treatment protocols, in close cooperation with our team of interns

  • Take part in the extra- veterinarian tasks of the team e.g.

What are we looking for:

  • You have a broad interest in all facets of equine medicine, but you have a strong preference for internal diseases.
