AdelaideVet’s intrinsic focus on continued education identifies with a real understanding of the importance and necessity for employers to provide a platform that enables education access via work placement to students who display a strong desire to enter the Veterinary Services Industry.
At AdelaideVet, we support work placement students who are undertaking graduate courses with Universities nationally and who are studying Veterinary Nursing at TAFE with placements varying between 1-13 weeks depending on course requirements, the average being 2-4 weeks duration.
After confirmation and commencement of a placement, students are introduced to our hospital team members and patients and provided with an overview of the training schedule that they will undertake and the varying procedures that they may have an opportunity to assist with. These will include observations of services in relation to treatments, consultations, surgeries, x-rays, ultrasounds, and more, to provide a broad spectrum of learning opportunity.
All work placement students are provided with a mentor and allocated a Veterinarian or Nurse buddy on each day to facilitate the appropriate training and supervision requirements. Our team members are available and willing to offer assistance and answer questions at any time to ensure that the goals and expectations of the student placement are met and that the experience is an enjoyable one.
Students considering a work placement are welcomed to make enquiries via our website or alternatively, by contacting the workplacement coordinator via firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need to include a copy of your resume, the preferred placement dates, a brief overview outlining what your expectations and requirements are that will need to be met from the placement and any further needs required by the relative University or TAFE body. We will then make contact with you to discuss future placement opportunities.
