Vet Placement & Work Experience

Vet Placement

At Snowy Vets, we believe in supporting professional development for all roles at all stages. We currently are only offering student placement for students enrolled in veterinary medicine. We offer 2-4 week externships at our busy mixed animal practice located in Cooma. Applicants can expect a program tailored to their stage of learning with practical hands on experiences fully supervised by both our Vets and nurses. 

We offer placement only in our Cooma clinic and dates are subject to demand. Students are involved with daily maintenance, routine consultations, surgery and treatment of small and large animals. 

We have a team of four dedicated Veterinarians, as well as five qualified nurses and a fantastic team of  four client relations staff members. Students are able to shadow team members to get the most out of their time with us. 

Our facilities include a fully equipped hospital facility, with three consultation rooms, large treatment room, isolation, surgical facility, ultrasound and radiology and equine barn. 

Please note that work placement students are selected on a case by case basis, and requires students to come into the clinic for a formal interview before acceptance.
