Jane Axon Scholarship: Scone Equine Hospital’s Clovelly Intensive Care Unit

The Jane Axon Scholarship, sponsored by Scone Equine Hospital, was established in 2015 and provides equine residents in training and equine veterinarians in practice with an opportunity to gain equine emergency and critical care experience by participating in a 4-week externship at Scone Equine Hospital’s Clovelly Intensive Care Unit from mid-September to the end of October each year. This period coincides with our highest neonatal caseload giving the successful applicant the chance to develop and expand their clinical and diagnostic skills in equine neonatology. The veterinarian will be involved in case admissions and management under the direction of our senior medicine specialists. The scholarship is to the value of AUD $5,000 and can be used to cover the cost of accommodation, car hire and transport to Scone on production of valid receipts.

The scholarship aims to recognise Jane Axon’s considerable contribution to the education and training of veterinary students, visiting residents and veterinarians during her position as director of the Scone Equine Hospital’s Clovelly ICU. Jane is a specialist in equine medicine and a recognised expert in equine neonatology. Her dedication and patience has shaped the careers of many equine veterinarians. She has played a major role in the development and expansion of the Scone Equine Hospital’s Clovelly ICU and continues to contribute to the ICU in her role as a consultant.

Only one scholarship is available each year. Applications for the 2017 Scholarship open on the 1st December 2016 and close on the 1st February 2017. Applications should include a curriculum vitae and letter of application and should be addressed to Cecilia Gavin.
