Principal supervisor: Sam Hole (Pool House Equine Clinic) and Gayle Hallowell (University of Nottingham)
Background: The University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS) provides clinical teaching using a community-based model, whereby undergraduate and postgraduate students are taught within clinical associate practices overseen by clinical specialists. This provides clinical exposure to a large range of clinical cases appropriate to a range of training opportunities and creates an environment for clinical research using both retrospective clinical data and a significant case load that supports prospective clinical studies.
This 4-year programme is full-time and includes a taught component (120 credits) delivered through a specialist residency training programme aligned to the European Veterinary Dental Collage (EVDC) based within the clinical associate network of practices based in the East Midlands. A research project aligned to the programme specification of a Masters is integrated into the programme.
The position will be primarily based at Pool House Equine Clinic (PHEC), where the resident will participate in the diagnosis and treatment of referred equine cases and receive specialist training in equine dentistry with the aim of qualifying as a Diplomate of the EVDC*. Residency programmes require approximately 5000 hours of clinical training, which will cover all aspects of the multidisciplinary speciality that encompasses equine dentistry. Clinical training will be supervised by clinical specialists in veterinary dentistry, surgery, internal medicine, and diagnostic imaging using the large caseload and specialist clinical equipment including; CT, MRI, ultrasound, radiography and endoscopy. Clinical training will include a requirement to undertake out-of-hours clinical work and participate in the general out-of-hours rota for the clinic/practice teams.
The research project will focus on the clinical application of veterinary dentistry in horses. Candidates with existing experience in equine veterinary dentistry are sought for this program.
