The Elective Preparatory Clinical Placement exposes you to the veterinary profession. It is a building block that contributes to your experience within the animal industries and the roles of the para-veterinary personnel within veterinary practices. This placement provides you a learning-by-doing environment where you can utilise and consolidate previous learning that encompasses aspects of all units of studies in Year 1 and 2, and in particular allows application of clinical skills and professionalism and professional conduct. You will work with nurses and technical support staff at the practice, learning and building on basic skills in a professional environment. It will help you to utilise and extend your knowledge, skill levels and professional behaviour in speciality areas of veterinary practices. During this placement you will gain practical experience in many aspects of veterinary work including basic practice and business management, case reporting, professional communication and proficiency in routine techniques and animal handling. This placement prepares you to work effectively with veterinary staff in your final year placements.
