Veterinary leaders, movers and shakers – still vets! Opportunities outside of clinical practice.

15 Nov 2019
BVA Careers Development - Gallery Suite 23/24

As a child I had always wanted to be a vet in practice, but I was unaware of the opportunities that exist outside a conventional 'practice job'. Making a decision to change track in a career can be daunting, especially when life cannot be planned. I have made changes in my career both as needed but also through deliberate choices. I will talk honestly about my decisions, what worked, what didn't and how I plan to work towards retirement. The jobs covered will be in farm animal practice, research (veterinary and medical), academia, pharmaceutical industry, pathology and my current role at AHDB.

  • Encourage attendees to think wider about their careers and to be able make more informed choices
  • Understand that you can teach old dogs new tricks
