Due to flourishing demand for our services, we would like to meet another enthusiastic, personable and talented veterinary anatomic pathologist that wants to work alongside our fantastic administrative and technical laboratory teams.

Bridge Pathology, is moving into the next phase of its development as part of Synlab-VPG group. VPG Histology is a veterinary diagnostic histopathology and immunohistochemistry company set in a pleasant part of Bristol, UK, dedicated to providing the very highest quality diagnostic surgical pathology services to our veterinary community. While the name has changed you will still find a highly collegial and friendly atmosphere alongside an international group of ten enthusiastic and hugely talented anatomic pathologists. Our caseload is mostly composed of companion animal species, with increasing numbers of exotic animal submissions also being received. A large proportion of our clients are in referral veterinary practice, which attests to the quality of our reporting and the exacting standards that we expect of all our pathologists and laboratory staff. Despite the parliamentary impasse the number of cases from our European neighbours is increasing, with recent doubling of our case load from Germany. We also provide the diagnostic anatomic pathology services for two of the UK veterinary schools.

We work ever more closely with our clinical pathology colleagues throughout the rest of Synlab-VPG, and have regular case discussions with them. Many of our pathologists also act as external examiners and visiting lecturers at UK veterinary schools. One of our pathologists is an examiner for the ECVP and another is an examiner for the Royal College of Pathologists.

We are keen to use our case material for clinical research. The aim is to collaborate in clinically-driven studies to add to an evidence base for diagnosis, prognostication and treatment of veterinary patients. We have excellent links with the veterinary schools and other research institutes throughout the UK and are currently participating in a number of different research projects. We also supervise and assist with undergraduate and postgraduate research projects for universities throughout the UK. You are encouraged to spend up to 10% of your time on research or business development activities within the diagnostic pathology rota.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. CPD is encouraged and supported. Everyone in the building stops to have coffee, tea and biscuits each morning, with a hallowed tradition of Friday cakes.

Applicants should ideally be board certified by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists, European College of Veterinary Pathologists or Royal College of Pathologists, although experienced applicants who are about to sit their postgraduate examinations will also be considered. Applicants with additional research training in veterinary pathology or a related subject would be desirable and due to our European caseload, fluency in German or another European language would be fantastic. As ever, baking skills would be an advantage, but the ability to make a decent cup of tea/coffee is essential.
