Veterinary Officer – Falkland Islands

Embark on a veterinary adventure in the Falkland Islands, where the rugged beauty of the winter landscape is punctuated by the presence of penguins.

From August to the Middle of September, a clinical veterinary locum opportunity awaits, ideally suited for a versatile practitioner comfortable with both small and large animals, including equine care.

Despite the remote location, the clinic boasts modern equipment including dental machines, digital x-ray, ultrasound, and laboratory analyzers.

Experienced candidates, with at least five years in the field, will thrive in this independent environment, supported by telemedicine links and a collaborative team within the broader Natural Resources Department.

All travel and accommodation will be arranged on yoru behlaf and costs covered

Discover the unique blend of veterinary practice and island life in the Falklands, where every day promises new challenges and the occasional encounter with nature’s majestic inhabitants.
