The CAHC is an accredited veterinary hospital which provides high quality primary opinion, referral, and emergency services for a dynamic and growing caseload of small animal patients. Working alongside another internist you will also enjoy strong support from a lively group of experienced academic specialists and pathologists, plus well-trained, hard-working nurses, client services personnel, and technical support staff. You will also have the opportunity to involve highly motivated final year veterinary students in clinical case management, making an important contribution to the clinical education of the next generation of veterinarians.

The CAHC is part of the Veterinary Health Centre (VHC), the University of Adelaide’s clinical teaching facility which offers a range of primary opinion, ambulatory and specialist veterinary services to the general public and referring veterinarians across all animal species while providing a clinical training environment for final year veterinary students working under the close supervision of experienced veterinary surgeons, nurses and support staff. It is situated on the University’s picturesque Roseworthy Campus, approximately 9km from the township of Gawler and on the doorstep of the world-renowned Barossa Valley wine region.

To be successful you should have:

  • Completion of speciality training (Australian Fellowship or American/European Boards) and eligibility to sit those examinations.
  • Proven ability to contribute independently to a clinical referral service in internal medicine.
  • Veterinary qualification with eligibility to be registered as a veterinarian in South Australia
