Graduate Support

The Graduate Support Programme - offered to all first and second year post graduation employees of Veterinary Enterprises was developed in 2002 as a result of recognizing that as an employer, Veterinary Enterprises had the responsibility to protect and develop their investment" the new graduate employee".

The objective is to offer new graduates a professional support structure which will provide them with the skills and confidence to excel.

For six full days per year, graduates are taken out of the day to day work environment and participate as a group in a structured programme designed to address many of the issues where Veterinary Enterprises have identified new graduates need support.

Facilitated by a small but diverse team of senior experienced veterinary practitioners within Veterinary Enterprises, first year graduates are exposed to case studies and interactive sessions covering topics such as certification, supersession, communication, and health and safety.

Professional development components include "talk the talk" or learning about farm business as well as "the approach" to many of the routine, seasonal clinical situations which graduates will face in their first year of clinical practice.

External, professional support is contributed by health specialists, and financial experts, and veterinary specialists are involved at the combined first and second year sessions to cover detailed veterinary professional development topics such as ophthalmology, dermatology, endocrinology and orthopaedic surgery.

Second year graduates have to present a case study or literature review and offer support by way of sharing their experiences and ideas learnt from their first year in clinical practice.
