About the course

Over the past 30 years, interventions, for reasons of health, welfare and the conservation of free-living wild animals, have been undertaken with increasing frequency. Specialist veterinary expertise is required in order to diagnose and control diseases in wildlife.

Emerging infectious diseases are also recognised as a serious hazard, both for wild animal species and for the domestic animal and human populations that interact with them. In addition, a large number of wild animal species are kept in captivity – in zoos and in laboratories – which has led to an increased demand for specialist skills and knowledge.

Entry Requirements

We invite applications from candidates with a Veterinary degree from a recognised veterinary school and at least one year of postgraduate veterinary experience.

We are keen to see some relevant postgraduate veterinary experience - for example, perhaps working in a zoo, wildlife rehabilitation centre or wildlife hospital, or with free-living wild animals. Applicants are required to demonstrate a minimum of 12 months paid (not volunteer) clinical veterinary experience as a licensed veterinarian with primary case responsibility (i.e. not job shadowing, not being mentored, but being specifically responsible/accountable for managing cases).
