Why come and work with us
The health & wellbeing of the pets under our care is engrained in everything we do. We even started out providing rehabilitative care, pain management and sports medicine services at STAR Rehab.
Providing the best level of care means continually investing in our people, and our facilities. Joining the STAR Vets family will give you access to plenty of training and development opportunities, as well as state-of-the-art equipment, like digital radiography.
Being one of only a handful of UK vet-led referral centres for rehabilitation and canine sports medicine, and a practice that also provide general veterinary care, we can make a huge difference in our patients’ lives.
Veterinary Nurse Training Practice
STAR Vets in Appleby Magna offers training placements and apprenticeships to Trainee Veterinary Nurses. This is in association with Warwickshire College, Solihull College and Bottle Green Nurse Training College.
Vet Student Work Placements (EMS) in Derbyshire
All Vet Students have to complete a total of 38 weeks of Extra-Mural Studies (work placements). These placements are an essential part of the Veterinary Degree course. They provide students with the opportunity to practice the animal handling and basic clinical skills they are taught at their respective Universities.
This important part of their education allows new graduates to ‘hit the ground running’ when they qualify, having already developed their DAY One Competences whilst on EMS placements during their degree course.
