Students page

At Wright and Morten we have been providing veterinary students with high quality EMS for many years and are keen to demonstrate modern, proactive livestock practice to enthusiastic students.

We try and encourage our students to think progressively and give them opportunities to take responsibility, under suitable guidance, to undertake farm investigative tasks such as mobility scoring and associated risk factor investigations, condition scoring and teat scoring. We also, where possible, undertake follow up tutorials and investigations with students to reinforce what they have seen.

We have 3 DBR holding vets and a Fellow of the RCVS in the farm animal division so students can be assured of receiving top quality experience with specialised professionals. We undertake a full range of fertility, infectious disease, husbandry and emergency work.

We will do our best to give students a broad experience but it is best if you put some thought into what you would like to get out of your experience with us before you come. If we know what you want to see we can better direct you to the most suitable vet to shadow.

The day starts at The Barn from 8am and usually finishes around 5:30pm. We have a student flat at our small animal hospital which is free for students to use subject to prior arrangement; we ask that students staying in the flat make themselves available for on call duties.

We ask that students come prepared with suitable protective clothing, basic diagnostic equipment (stethoscope & thermometer), a willing attitude and a professional appearance.

We are generally booked up for standard vacation times about a year in advance so it is wise to get in touch with us as soon as you know your dates to increase the likelihood of being able to come at the most suitable time for you.
