Tropical Vet Services Graduate Program


Tropical Vet Services is excited to introduce our Graduate Program to 5th year vet students.


Our Graduate program offers new and recent graduates an awesome opportunity to delve into your career as a mixed-animal rural veterinarian working closely with a dedicated mentor and supported by a team of experienced vets and nurses.


From July 2018, we will be accepting applications for several Graduate positions – for each of our main clinics (start dates are negotiable).



We are looking for a new vet…..

What we have……

Great staff – our nurses love coming to work, so much so that they even tell us this. Some of our vets even have the audacity to leave us after a few years and then want to come back! (we let them)

Great equipment – idexx machines, digital xrays, ultrasounds, endoscopes and many other expensive machines that go ping.

Great environment – Tropical North Queensland. Cairns to the north and Ayr to the south. Brisbane is 2 hours away by plane. Rainforest out our window, Great Barrier Reef on our door step, bushwalking, mountain biking, fishing, cultural events, sporting clubs and groups a plenty.

Great bosses – We will give you $4000 per year to spend on your own continuing education. If you are a new graduate we will put you into our mentoring program where we have regular catch ups, where we monitor your progress and so do you. We will let you have a go at anything and be ready to guide you along when you need it.

Great conditions – We offer well above the award wage. You will work a 4 day week (most of the time) and do on call every 3 weeks. (For new grads we let you settle in for a month or so first before we give you the afterhours phone) Our after-hours payments are very generous. We have 3 nurses for every 2 vets so there is always somebody around to give you a helping hand.

Options to refer those nasty cases – We have the ability to refer those things we can’t sort out. There are travelling specialists (surgery, ophthalmology, dermatology) that come past every month or so. However we also get to manage a lot of these things within our clinics because amongst our staff we have a lot of vets with special interests – Avian, Equine Repro, Cattle Repro, Wildlife and exotics just to name a few.

What you should do Give Jaci a call at our North Shore clinic on 07 47748764 or send her an email at
