TESA is seeking a motivated veterinarian to join our team on a full-time 12-month Ophthalmology internship

About the role

The successful candidate is expected to work Monday to Thursday, as well as shared on-call duties as needed. During the course of the internship, at least one paper is expected to be written and submitted for publication into a suitable peer reviewed journal.

Interns participate in consultations, surgery setups, anaesthesia and monitoring of patients, treatment of ophthalmology inpatients, discharging patients, preparing patients for surgeries and postoperative care and recovery, client communication and engage in self-learning such as attending continuing development lectures and reading of books and journals.

This 12-month internship commencing Jan 2023 offers an outstanding opportunity for a highly motivated, hardworking, experienced and professional individual to work and learn in a busy and friendly referral ophthalmology team. It provides the perfect springboard for individuals wishing to pursue future specialist training in ophthalmology.

What TESA offers

We are a very busy practice but also strive to support our staff tremendously. We provide gold standard practice and specialist procedures that are not available anywhere else in Singapore. This position has the potential to evolve into a residency training program in veterinary ophthalmology at the end of the internship, for the right candidate. This is not a guaranteed progression, and will depend on multiple factors, including some of the qualities mentioned above.
