Fish Vet work experience available.

Georgia Aquarium Veterinary Student Preceptorship/Externship Program

The Georgia Aquarium provides veterinary students the unique opportunity to gain experience in the field of aquatic animal medicine at one of the largest aquariums in the world. We are fortunate to have a nutritionist, full commissary staff, a water chemist, and team of veterinary and laboratory technicians.

There are three full-time clinical veterinarians and a veterinary resident. Through a partnership with the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine, we have an established aquatic veterinary pathology program as well as a growing clinical partnership with the zoological medicine service. The Georgia Aquarium has a state of the art veterinary hospital with equipment comparable to that found at a teaching hospital or specialty practice.

Preceptorships/externships lasting a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 6 weeks are available. Preference will be given to 3rd and 4th-year students, but all students may apply. Work hours are typically 7:30 – 5:00 but may vary depending on the medical needs of the collection. The work week will be Monday to Friday. However, students should be flexible if asked to work on their weekend days.

Low-cost housing may be available but should not be expected. Students should provide their own transportation to and from the aquarium. There is limited public transportation. A current tetanus vaccination and health insurance are required.

Students will spend time working in the commissary, water quality laboratory, diagnostic laboratory, quarantine, and will assist in performing necropsies as well as assisting with clinical cases. Individuals are expected to complete a research or special project and give a PowerPoint presentation during the last week of the preceptorship. We will provide both required and recommended reading lists intended to broaden the student’s knowledge base in aquatic animal husbandry and clinical care.

Our externship program runs September through June similar to the academic year. All materials must be submitted by October 1st of the preceding academic year, with decisions being made by October 31st. Applications for the academic year Fall 2018 through Spring 2019 are due by October 1, 2017.

There are some dates externships may not be available so please provide 3 different sets of dates.

Required application materials

  • Letter of intent
  • Curriculum vitae/resume
  • Veterinary School transcript, electronic copy (unofficial is acceptable)
  • 3 letters of recommendation
  • 3 sets of available dates in order of preference

Submit to:

clinical@georgiaaquarium.org with “Vet Extern Program” in the subject line.

 

Incomplete applications will not be considered. It is the student’s responsibility to check that their information packet is complete. Your application will be reviewed by Dr. Alexa McDermott, Dr. Chelsea Anderson, and Dr. Tonya Clauss.

The largest team of aquatic veterinarians at your service.

The Fish Vet’s team is arguably the largest conglomerate of aquatic veterinarians in the southern hemisphere.

Together, we assist fish farmers to find correct diagnosis.

Our team has experience working overseas in Brazil, Scotland, Thailand, UAE, Singapore and Tasmania (so OK, the latter is part of Australia).

Our team of qualified veterinarians are committed to assisting farmers to find the causes of conditions that affect the health of their farmed fish and shrimp. A confirmed diagnosis helps to ensure correct management or treatment, and this in turn leads to increased profits for farmers.

We don’t just do fish.
We ONLY do fish.

We’ve registered Fish Veterinarians in Perth (WA), Melbourne/Brunswick (Victoria), and Sydney/Gosford (NSW); and Aquatic Animal Health Specialists in Townsville & Bribie Island (Qld). We can come to you.
If you’re not in these locations, you can still access our services from remote locations. Ask us how.

The Fish Vets can be contacted at thefishvet@gmail.com or on +61 421 822 383 for all fish health related work.

Together, our team of aquatic veterinarians and fish health specialists services crustacea (prawns/shrimp), finfish aquaculture (salmonids, barramundi, silver perch, and more), molluscs (abalone, oysters), ornamental pet fishes (koi, goldfish, Cichlids, marines), public aquaria (sharks, rays, Syngnathids), educational institutions (zebrafish), and more.

Free Lecture: Fisheries and Global Warming – Impacts on marine ecosystems – Prof. Dan Pauly.

PUBLIC LECTURE:
Fisheries and Global Warming: Impacts on marine ecosystems
– Professor Daniel Pauly takes a historical look at fisheries, and comments on the current challenges of global food security

Thu, 25 May 2017 18:00 – Theatre Auditorium, The University Club of Western Australia

Professor Daniel Pauly
The period following the Second World War saw a massive increase in fishing effort, particularly in the 1960s. However, crashes due to this overfishing began to be reflected in global catch trends in the 1970s, and intensified in the 1980s and 1990s. In response, the industrialised countries of the Northern Hemisphere (where over fishing-induced catch declines appeared first) moved their effort toward deeper waters, and toward the south, i.e., to the coasts of developing countries, and beyond into the southern hemisphere, all the way to Antarctica. Now, in the second decade of the 21st century, the global expansion of fisheries is completed, and the real global catch, which is much higher than officially reported, peaked in the late 1980s and is now rapidly declining. In parallel, the collateral damage to marine ecosystems and biodiversity continues to increase. Several factors act to prevent the public in developed countries from realising the depth of the crisis fisheries are in, notably the increased imports by developed countries, of seafood from developing countries. Also, the misleading perception that aquaculture can substitute for declining catches is widespread. In some countries, notably the U.S., stocks are being rebuilt, but elsewhere, the failure to respond creatively to these clear trends bode ill for the next decades. Indeed, the effects of global warming (productivity declines in the tropics, widespread disruptions at high latitudes), which have been increasingly felt in the last decades, will strongly impact fisheries and global seafood supply.
