At our core, AEA exists to help veterinary professionals do and be their best. We invest in our team members’ work-life balance, career progression, and personal development, empowering them to excel in the field of veterinary medicine while making a meaningful impact on the lives of animals.

About the Role

We have the perfect opportunity for you with our Emergency and Critical Care New Grad Program and Fast-Track Program at our After-Hours Emergency Clinics in Perth, specifically Perth Vet Emergency (PVE) Yokine and PVE Cannington! At PVE you will learn in a highly supportive and encouraging environment where the focus is on helping you develop as a veterinarian and help you develop your ECC career!
The internship phase of an emergency career with PVE is an exciting, fully supported, growth opportunity that includes full-time hours where you are rostered for 152 clinical hours per 4-weeks, over a 6-month period. During this time you will not only gain the skills to kickstart your career in emergency vet work, but you will also get post-nominals in ECC (FCert ECC) at the end of your internship. Included in this period, we will pay you 5 hours a week to study to further your education and growth!
With an New Grad Training Package to fast track your ECC training and growth (worth over $14,000) you will engage in the below courses to cover the fundamental skills that make great emergency vets:

  • Accelerated Emergency Program designed to build vital clinical skills and knowledge
  • Emergency Surgery Program with step-by-step breakdowns of common emergency surgical conditions
  • Ultrasound Training to enhance your powerful diagnostic skills in practice
  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation– narrow down the key components of this critical emergency skill
  • Vet Success Academy– master consultations with confidence and professionalism
  • THRIVE– we help you tackle the challenges of working within this impactful yet challenging profession
  • AEA LIVE Program to focus on your career progression and fast-track your journey into new roles

Our New Grad Program provides an opportunity for vets to establish a career in ECC medicine under the guidance of experienced clinicians. The objective of this program is to train individuals to be confident ECC leaders. Upon completion, you can choose to stay on as part of our team.
The internship is facilitated by an experienced Emergency and Critical Care veterinarian holding or studying for their memberships in ECC. The start of the new grad program will see you engage in one-on-one mentorship; involving accompanying your mentor in consultations, assisting in diagnostic investigations, surgical procedures and observing communications with clients. Interns will then progress to taking primary case management under supervision, allowing them to develop the confidence and clinical skill needed. In this challenging field of veterinary medicine, you will receive regular and structured check-ins and feedback sessions with your mentor. After 6 months and upon graduation from the program you will join our consulting vet roster and transition to ECC Vet working part time, or full-time rostered hours.
