Hi!

This is my first post here! I am starting at Liverpool Vet School in September, and I was just wondering how much EMS/work experience type stuff you have to do in your first year? What kind of thing do you have to do?

Thank you!

They have changed the course a little so I'm not sure about specifics.

As for all vet schools you will need to do:

12 weeks preclinical EMS (which is farm work including pigs, lambing, dairy and poultry, stables, catteries/kennels, etc. where you are learning about basic husbandry and handling)
2 weeks public health (abattoir/diagnostic lab/butchers)
24 weeks clinical EMS (equine, farm and small animal vet practices)

Liverpool encourage you to do a mix of clinical and preclinical from 1st year. You will need to do around ~8 weeks per academic year.

Liverpool have a database of placements where previous students have gone to, but it is down to you to organise everything yourself; they will chase you up if you're not doing enough placements etc.

Hope this gives you a rough idea!
