Professional Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (Residency) in Veterinary Dermatology

Applications are invited from veterinary graduates for a Professional Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (DVetMed) following a Veterinary Dermatology track, based within the Hospital for Small Animals at the Easter Bush campus.

The clinical training allows completion of the credentials for the European College of Veterinary Dermatology Diploma. The Dermatology Service is registered for training by the ECVD, and has a very successful programme with previous residents achieving two PhDs and twelve diplomas. The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies offers world-class clinical, teaching and research facilities at the Easter Bush Campus. Edinburgh is also consistently ranked as one of the world’s most desirable cities to live in.

At least two year’s general practice or one year internship experience is required. Clinical experience in dermatology would be preferred but is not essential. You must be, or be eligible to become, a member of the RCVS.

The scholarship will commence on the 6th March 2023 and will run for a four-year fixed-term, renewable annually subject to completion of required DVetMed components.

 The residency attracts an annual tax-free stipend of £27,026.37 and an additional allowance of £1,500 per annum available for approved travel, examination fees and CPD. Postgraduate fees will be paid by the University of Edinburgh at UK level.
