Graduate programme

With compassion, teamwork, and close relationships with our clients, we provide the highest level of pet healthcare, all day, everyday – that’s the Inglis Way!

Inglis Vets are delighted to announce we’re once again running our bespoke graduate programme ‘new.graduatevet 2018’ in conjunction with our friends at Pets ‘n’ Vets Glasgow.

As two independent Scottish practices, we believe this is the most well-rounded and best- supported graduate programme available in Scotland, but that doesn’t stop us making continual improvements!

This year’s programme will see our new graduates undertake advanced training and extra practice on surgery, consultations and general practice, furthering surgical skills and confidence.

Graduates will initially be based at our highly-regarded Care and Save branch, based in Cowdenbeath for the first month of intensive training before joining the hospital team in Dunfermline. As well as working with our senior veterinary surgeons, graduates will also have the chance to work with visiting specialists, providing a wealth of experience.

Other key aspects of the programme include:

  • Consulting and surgical shadowing at our award-winning pet hospital in Dunfermline
  • An experienced vet designated as a ‘Mentor’ within the practice
  • Supported exposure to out-of-hours ECC: we provide our own weekend and night service but you’ll never work consecutive day and night, won’t be alone and you’ll get decent time off after working nights
  • Monthly Mentor meetings and case reviews
  • A digest of monthly seminars, case discussions and reviews
  • Day release for monthly seminars at the Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital in Glasgow
  • Experience of complex cases and work ups including the use of ultrasonography, endoscopy, dentistry and dental imaging, orthopaedics, cardiology, dermatology and more


A few words from our most recent graduate Charlotte…

Hi I’m Charlotte and I am currently on the Inglis vets new graduate programme. I was drawn to the programme by the amount of support available for their new graduates and it has not disappointed.

When you start the programme, you are assigned a veterinary mentor, and the whole team at Inglis Vets are incredibly friendly and more than happy to help you, any support you could need is only an ask away!

At the beginning I had designated time at a branch to focus on my basic surgical skills and to become familiar with the computer system. Since then I have continued to develop my surgical skills and learn more advanced procedures in our hospital.

One of the best parts about being a new graduate at Inglis is that you are encouraged to follow your cases from start to finish, you are involved in all aspects from initial consults to diagnostics to surgery. This means that at only three months qualified, I have been heavily involved in more unusual cases such as intussusceptions and pericardial effusions alongside routine consults.

This has given me a great foundation across all general practice areas. I’m also encouraged to pursue areas of my own interest both in practice and through on-going CPD.
