Equipping you for a role in ECC

Cutting Edge is a residential 10-week induction, designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you’ll need before starting a full-time role in one of our nationwide network of emergency clinics. It is an innovative and comprehensive route into an emergency and critical care (ECC) career with Vets Now.

Designed by ECC diplomate Amanda Boag, the programme combines lectures and interactive seminars with practical training and surgery, all supported by mentored work in our clinics.

If you are RCVS registered and have at least six months experience in UK general practice, you are ready to take the first steps into an emergency role with Cutting Edge. There are intakes in March and August.

How does it work?

For six weeks of the programme, our dedicated training facility within our Dunfermline support office offers a bespoke environment for interactive and practical learning.

You’ll spend the remaining four weeks at one of our out-of-hours clinics across the UK, being mentored by our experienced emergency clinicians. Following completion of the 10-week induction, you will be ready to get started in your full-time role.
