Graduate Programme

Vet with two dogs

We understand that the first couple of years after qualifying is an exciting, yet daunting prospect. The two year Willows Veterinary Group Graduate Programme has been designed to make the transition from undergraduate to working veterinary surgeon as smooth as possible – providing training, mentoring and support in these early years of your career.

We take on a number of new graduates at once and facilitate regular ‘get-togethers’ with your peer group so that you are not facing life as a vet on your own.

Initially, you will only work a 4 day week and a phased introduction to OOH ensures you have a great work/life balance.

Our excellent CPD programme is composed of the XLVets Small Animal Development Programme and a Willows Vet Group CPD run by our team of experienced vets, support staff and specialists from our referral practice Oakwood Veterinary Referrals.

All graduates are allocated a mentor to provide one to one support and coaching and we also help you to complete your RCVS PDP.
