We welcome all veterinary undergraduates going us for their intramural rotation at Lingfield Equine Vets. We have four clinicians who act as Clinical Instruction Mentors and will oversee IMR - Rachel Atherton, Kate Granshaw, Imogen Burrows and Lucy Carmichael, although students may benefit from working alongside all of our experienced clinicians.
The aim of IMR is to develop day one compentences, skills and attributes through their integration and application in a work-based placement providing a safe, authentic and supervised learning environment. We provide a varied first-opinion equine case load with hospital facilities but consider ourselves to be a predominantly ambulatory practice. We have with practical and highly qualified and experienced clinicians who share a passion for personal and professional clinical development. This helps align us with the University of Surrey's mission to facilitate the transition from student to comfident, competent and compassionate veterinary surgeon.
We want to get to know the individual students during their rotation to ensure we work with you to enhance your experience and provide the best learning opportunities we can. We encourage students to share their strengths and weakness with us at the start of their rotation so we can develop the areas specific to each individual student as needed. We will regularly check in students during their rotation and ensure that relevant and constructive feedback to focus on knowledge, clinical reasoning, technical skills, communication skills, patient care and professional behaviours is given as we go. We also welcome feedback to us as a placement centre to ensure we are able to help you get the best from your IMR.
