The Rotating Internship Program
The Rotating Internship Program consists of two scholars per academic year and involves spending equal amount of time at the RVC's the Welsh Regional Veterinary Centre in Carmarthenshire and in the RVC/Northpoint Joint Venture Practice.
Welsh Regional Veterinary Centre, Carmarthenshire
The Welsh Regional Veterinary Centre provides a farm health investigation service to vets and farmers in Wales.
The main remit of the WRVC is to educate final year veterinary students, to prepare them to solve a population centred problem. This problem could be of infectious nature or a production disease, or a combination of both. A key aspect of the investigations is the mutual benefit received by farmer, vet and vet students
During these investigations the Centre's team work with the farmers' own vets to identify problems that might impair the productivity, health or welfare of animals in the herd or flock. The inquiry usually involves a series of farm visits for individual animal examination, production evaluation, and an analysis of any relevant management processes.
