This Sheep Industry Placement is part of the Extramural Studies Program and provides you with a unique opportunity to increase your knowledge of animal industries outside of conventional clinical practice. It will help you to utilise and extend your knowledge, skill levels and professional behaviour in speciality areas of veterinary practices. The unit involves a one-week practical experience at a School approved external commercial enterprise involving sheep. Suitable enterprises include commercial studs and farms . You will be under the supervision of an external supervisor who will liaise with the School, review the aims of the placement with you, and assess your performance via a standard report form. You are expected to fully participate in agreed activities whilst attending the placement, typically taking on the role of a full-time, supervised associate. You will be required to submit a reflective diary on your experiences as a personal record of your achievements. Supervisors are required to complete a Supervisor Report at the end of the placement.
