Veterinary Policy Research Foundation

The Parliamentary Veterinary Internship

In addition to providing research and administrative support to Lord Trees, it is intended that the internship provides a career development opportunity for young vets. Therefore the VPRF funds the role of a veterinary parliamentary intern who works alongside Lord Trees for up to 2 years.

Through the work of the intern and of Lord Trees, the VPRF aims to inform, advise, and influence UK government in matters related to Lord Trees' areas of expertise and interest. 

The Parliamentary Veterinary Internship offers the chance to work at the House of Lords alongside a veterinarian in parliament. It offers insight into veterinary policy and the parliamentary process and is a chance, for those interested in policy making and the varied roles veterinarians contribute to society, to develop new skills during a unique career development opportunity. The position is open to veterinary graduates (who are MRCVS).  Candidates must demonstrate a commitment to the advancement of the veterinary profession in the UK.
