Do you have to find your own Vet Clinic for placement or is there set places to send students?
Would anyone have an estimated cost of the Gurteen College placement?
Thanks for any help with these
Hey Missymiss22, I graduated from this course in 2010 so I think I can help you out.
1. Dentistry is done on the course. The subjects have changed slightly since I studied but it's usually done in year one probably in Anatomy & Physiology and/or Animal Husbandry.
2. As far as I remember you do have to find your own place but the clinic has to be registered to take students. Don't worry though, you're not totally on your own, whoever is in charge of your placement will help you out if you're stuck.
3. The cost of the Gurteen placement is about €200 for the two weeks as far as I remember, it could have increased slightly since I was there though.
Hope this was of help. Good luck.
