Veterinarians: Must hold a veterinary science qualification recognised by the Australian Veterinary Boards Council or the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and be registered to practise in the jurisdiction of usual residence.
Veterinary Nurses: Awarded a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing or Bachelor of Veterinary Technology/Nursing, or equivalent.
Veterinarians with between 1 and 2 years relevant clinical experience are considered on a case-by-case basis. New graduates and final year veterinary students are encouraged to volunteer as veterinary aides. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
VBB VetMatch programs are beginning to reopen following the pandemics forced suspension of our deployments. The initial stages of our program reactivations will not include any veterinary student deployments, however we hope to resume this is the near future.
When veterinary students are deployed, they are only authorised to perform the duties of veterinary nurses. They are not permitted to perform acts of veterinary science. They must be supervised by a registered veterinarian or other senior staff member of the Program's staff, to ensure that their duties are restricted to those of a veterinary nurse
