Linnaeus and Vets: Stay, Go, Diversify are hosting 'Internships Explained: Unleash Your Potential', a virtual open day on Tuesday 23rd May (9:00am-8:00pm) in which more than 20 speakers will take part in 12 presentations, live demonstrations and panel discussions. 

Speakers at the event include Toby Trimble, founder of Trimble Productions and a Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia, who will be advising on public speaking, Jonny Hughes, Diagnostic Imaging Specialist at Davies Veterinary Specialists, who will lead an interactive session reviewing radiographs from four real-life cases, and Emily Thomas, Specialist in Emergency and Critical Care at Dick White Referrals, who will appraise recent cases she has seen with her intern team.

Career experiences and advice will be shared by a live panel of current rotating interns.

In another session, residency programme directors from Linnaeus hospitals will offer their tips for successfully applying to a residency post. 

Attendees will also be able to watch live sessions with interns and specialists performing diagnostics and procedures, including a laparoscopic spay at Eastcott and an echocardiographic exam at Anderson Moores.

Natasha Hetzel, Internship and Residency Manager at Linnaeus (pictured right), said: “This is the perfect opportunity to hear from peers who have completed a rotating internship, and watch live sessions showcasing the teaching that interns receive. Attendees will also receive support from experts on the internship application process, including a chance to book 1.1 sessions with internship directors for further advice.

“The event will also consider routes into residencies and becoming a specialist, as these are popular career routes for interns. However, an internship is also an excellent way to develop the skills and knowledge for a career in primary care.”

Attendees unable to join on the day can still register to watch the recorded sessions.
