Deadline for applications: 25th February 2022 Interviewing: week starting 7th March 2022

Term: 3-year fixed term

Hours: Full time, plus participation in the ‘out of hours’ rota

Deadline for applications: 25th February 2022

Residency start date: 1st April 2022


Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists Ltd is a busy, multi-disciplinary, referral-only small animal hospital in Hampshire, UK committed to providing the highest standards of patient care and has an established programme of post-graduate training (internships and residencies). We have a varied caseload of unusual and challenging cases and a close-knit team. We continue to expand our clinical services and believe in a team approach to challenging cases.


We have just opened a Neurology/Neurosurgery Residency position for a 3-year fixed term and are looking for an enthusiastic person, with a good sense of humour, to join our team. The neurology team consists of three ECVN diplomates, one board-eligible clinician, an ECVN resident and a neurology intern, supported by RCVS, European and American Specialist clinicians in a wide range of disciplines (anaesthesia, cardiology, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, internal medicine, orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery and dentistry). We also have an on-site physiotherapy team.

Our hospital contains all the facilities expected of an advanced referral hospital including 1.5T MRI, 64 Slice CT, electrophysiology equipment, a full range of neurosurgical equipment, fluoroscopy, video-endoscopy, minimally-invasive and orthopaedic surgical equipment.


The position is a three-year programme that satisfies the training requirements of the European College of Veterinary Neurology. It will include structured time off clinics for study and research, daily clinical rounds, a weekly journal club and resident seminars. The neurology resident will work under the supervision of the neurologists and will be involved in the daily care of patients, consultations, diagnostic procedures, and neurosurgeries. This opportunity is ideal for someone who has previous experience in neurology, has a genuine passion for the discipline and who is looking to pursue a career in this field.


We strongly support ongoing training and CPD, and as a member of our team you will receive a competitive salary and a benefits package which includes private health care and a company pension scheme.


Anderson Moores is located in a rural setting but close to national and international transport links (Heathrow, Southampton and Bournemouth airports, direct train links to London and the Midlands), and with easy access to the beautiful south coast for recreational activities.


Candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • have excellent English language skills
  • be registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS) or be eligible to register  
  • have a minimum of two years of clinical experience since graduation and/or have completed a rotating or neurology internship in a multidisciplinary referral centre. Experience in small animal practice in the UK is desirable.

All applicants must be eligible to work in the UK.

Please note that due to the location of our practice and the ‘on call’ responsibilities, having your own transport would be an advantage.


The successful candidate would ideally start in April 2022.
