Veterinary graduate? Get ahead in your career - apply for the VetX Graduate Program Scholarship

VetX Graduate Community director, Dr Dave Nicol, has announced the launch of a funded place in the VetX accelerated learning, development and mentoring community under the VetX Scholarship.

The Program, set up in response to calls for more support and better teaching on the essential non-clinical skills veterinary graduates needed for success in veterinary practice, begins in March/April 2018 and is open to any vets who are up to five years post-graduation. 

VetX features 12 months of intensive teaching, mentoring and peer support for up to fifty graduates. The class of 2018 will be will receive teaching from some of the best UK, USA and Australian tutors.

Speaking about the VetX Graduate program Dr Nicol said: “I've been running 'in practice' mentoring and training schemes for vets for almost a decade, VetX Graduate takes this experience and brings the content online so we can reach, support and help more graduates than ever before."

Adding, “Our young vets are crying out for better support and training in the non-clinical skills. They want to learn better communication skills. They want to know how to make dealing with clients and people easier and they want to know how to handle life as a vet so they enjoy it, not get burned out. VetX Graduate provides all of these things and more.”

An important way to give back

According to Dr Nicol, the VetX scholarship is an important way of giving back, because he was fortunate to have received help from many amazing mentors and who gave freely of their time and expertise.

“Opening up a fully funded place for vet graduates on the program is my way of saying thanks - of paying it forward."

The class is open to grads from Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

If you are a veterinary surgeon who has graduated in 2013 or later and are interested in applying for a fully funded scholarship in the VetX Australia class of 2018, (saving you $2000) then you should go online to to learn more about the course and apply for a scholarship place.

Demand is likely to be high so don’t delay.
