Transition Into Clinical Practice

At the Animal Emergency Service, we have dozens of students every year coming through for practical rotations. Here are some of my tips to help your transition into practical placements.

Top Tips

Have a MiniVet Guide! This will give you a framework on which to approach any case that you see. Don’t be caught out not having a clue when asked by your supervisor what your take on a case is.
Have your own stethoscope, pen, scissors and name badge. You don’t want to look like a pre-clinical student now do you? You’re not playing dress up anymore. For all intent and purposes, you are a clinician and will be expected to conduct yourself as one.
Look professional – contact the clinic before a rotation to ask if there is any special dress requirement. Please don’t rock up on the Monday morning looking like you spent the night in the bush.
