At Gateway Vets we welcome veterinary students that are studying or considering studying to join us for their practical placements. At busy times of the year, we also encourage veterinary nursing and veterinary technician students to join us for placement while studying towards their qualification.
Our mixed practice clinic is based in Geraldine. Majority of our cliental are dairy based, however we also have a number of sheep, beef, deer and companion animal clients.
Our busiest time of year for large animal placements is during the spring, although the work load varies between seasons and for different client bases. At Gateway Vets we are flexible with the time of year students would choose to join us for placement, although we do encourage students to think of the season and what the vets will be busy with while they visit. Spring is a great time for placement to get hands on experiences with calving, lambing etc. For Veterinary technician placements, disbudding and teat sealing happen seasonally and are a great opportunity for practical experience.
