Graduate Development Program

AEC Moorabbin is excited to announce we have an additional place for our next intake of our Graduate Development Program.   This is a 24 month immersion program in small animal emergency and critical care medicine paving the way for a residency, graduate degree study or entry into a high quality small animal veterinary practice.  The program will provide you with the training and the clinical case exposure to acquire advanced knowledge and skills in small animal emergency and critical care. The position is suitable for a recent graduate or a new graduate of exceptional standards and will commence early 2021.


The centre is equipped with gold star equipment including; digital radiographs, in house bloods (CBC, biochemistry, EPOC, PT/APTT), a MyLAB30 gold ultrasound and a VIVID3 cardiac ultrasound, three ventilators including a Puritan Bennet, humidicribs, an oxygen generator, a spacious surgery, a defibrillator and Sugivet, DASH and Cardell monitors.  Our patients are frequently insured and willing to pursue the gold standard of treatment. We have an extensive library of protocols to support you, however critical & lateral thinking and treating each case individually is highly encouraged. We have visiting cardiologists, internal medicine ultrasonographers and a close relationship with both surgical and internal medicine specialists.


We will provide you with five weeks annual leave, one week CE leave, 10 days personal leave, financial CE support, VIN & Plumb on line membership.  Clinical shifts are a combination of days, nights, weekdays, weekends and public holidays.


If you would like to advance your skills and prepare for a career in emergency medicine, or would like a prospectus, please send your CV and a one page cover letter to Veterinary Director Dr Bronwyn Oke BVSc(hons) MVS (cons. med.) MANZCVS(ECC) at



“The GDP program at AEC has made the transition from vet student to graduate vet seamless. I was provided with an immense amount of support from the moment I started with gradual steps to working on my own- all determined by what pace I felt comfortable going at. The continuing education has been a big part of the program ranging from wet pracs, ultrasound tutorials, case studies and more. I would highly recommend this program to anyone- not just those interested in emergency but also those keen at developing and learning gold standard of care.” Dr Charlotte Wells – 2020


“The Graduate Development Program has been invaluable in providing direction for me as I began my veterinary career. The assignments have helped equip me with up-to-date knowledge of common cases, and the support provided both inside and outside the clinic has meant I’ve never felt stranded when a difficult situation has arisen. The ability to access data from clinics across Australia is an incredible opportunity and has driven my desire to research in order to improve what we consider best practice medicine.” Dr Amelia Oh – 2020
