Do you want to have the very BEST start to your veterinarian career?  JCUVet is the Clinical Small Animal Teaching Hospital for James Cook University in Townsville.  We operate as a Referral Centre, Emergency & Critical Care Hospital and have our own GP Practice.  Together we make up a diverse team of 90+.

We have already placed three interns for next year, however we are offering one more small animal rotating hospital veterinarian internship for a recently graduated veterinarian who wants to build their knowledge and clinical skills.   This internship commences in January 2024 for a 12-month period.

We understand the concerns that interns have as to weekly hours expectations. Our interns work an average of 38 hours per week, with access to additional learning and training opportunities within and outside of these hours.

Are you unsure what to do once you graduate?  Want to work in gold standard environment? A rotating internship offers you the ability to work through our disciplines of surgery, medicine, anaesthesia and ECC.  Unlike every other rotating internship, we also offer you GP!

We will be there every step of the way supporting, mentoring and guiding you; and being your biggest cheerleaders.   Aside from your placement in ECC, shifts are typically worked across four days per week.
