How to Transition to Emergency as a New Grad

How to Transition to Emergency as a New Grad

Are you currently in vet school, about to finish your final year of vet science, or have recently just graduated in the last 12 months and have an interest in emergency but don’t know if you should pursue it? It can be challenging to know exactly where to go next after vet school. Many people think that going into GP is like dipping your toe in, and going into emergency is like jumping straight in the deep end. But is this actually the case?

Join Dr Gerardo Poli in this enlightening webinar to find out what going straight into emergency is really like and how it compares to going into general practice. Gerardo and a panel of vets who have made that step will share their experience, important points to consider, and some valuable strategies on how to swim instead of sink.

Dive Into Your Veterinary Journey

AEA have been leading the pack in the emergency field – with hospitals all over Australia we know all about what it’s like to achieve your veterinary goals in emergency. As a vet science student or new graduate, the thought of going directly into veterinary emergency can be daunting. Even the word “emergency” gives many students a massive spike of adrenaline and excitement, but then almost as quickly elicits feelings of doubts and concerns.

We know this because we felt it too when we started.

Emergency work can be the perfect way to give your veterinary skills the valuable kick-start they need. Every shift is action-packed, interesting, and you learn so much, plus you have a massive impact and the opportunity to save lives. Vet school has given you the theory, and now it’s time to get hands on and learn by putting that into practice.

That’s why we’re here to help veterinarians to do and be their best.

In our upcoming webinar, we’ll discuss whether emergency really is diving in the deep end, and how this can be the best way to start your veterinary career. As the experts in emergency, it’s our responsibility to provide you with everything we’ve learned over the years to ensure you not only swim, but lead the pack as a high-performing veterinarian with a focus on clinical excellence and obtain all the support and guidance you need to succeed along the way.
