The internship phase of an emergency career with PVE is an exciting, supported growth opportunity! This includes full-time hours where you are rostered for approximately 132 clinical hours per 4-weeks  over a 6-month period, with  approximately 20 hrs per 4 weeks set aside for you to study, reflect and develop as a vet and team member.  Grow your knowledge in an Emergency and Critical Care setting with a caring team and experienced leaders and mentors.
