Work Experience

Chine House Equine Hospital offer a limited number of work experience placements of one-week duration to school and college students, over 16 years of age, with a keen interest in equine and veterinary matters. This can be arranged independently, or through your educational institution.

At our hospital, the programme offers students the opportunity to experience life at an equine practice. This will include shadowing our staff with a varied equine caseload and helping our nurses and grooms with their duties, providing students with a useful insight into the work carried out within a busy equine veterinary practice by vets, vet nurses and support staff.
