I entered my internship programme with the desire to improve professionally and the hope that it would provide the next step in my career path and I have been overwhelmed with the opportunity that I have discovered in working within such an accomplished and welcoming veterinary team. The infectious enthusiasm for the veterinary profession and fantastic patient care at SCVS has been the most rewarding experience in my career so far.
