Unforgettable Experience For Esther

Unforgettable Experience For Esther

The Jane Axon Scholarship is sponsored by Scone Equine Hospital and provides a unique opportunity for a medicine resident in training to spend four weeks at Scone Equine Hospital's Intensive Care Unit during the busiest period of the foal season. Esther Siegers was the successful winner of the scholarship this year. Esther graduated in 2011 from the University of Utrecht in Holland and did an internship followed by a medicine residency at the University of Utrecht. She is currently in her third (and final) year of her residency and she is taking her specialist board examinations in February 2018. She has a special interest in neonatal medicine.

Esther had the following comments on her scholarship and time at Scone Equine Hospital:

'I am very thankful to have received the Jane Axon Scholarship. It was an unforgettable and wonderful experience to spend 4 weeks at Scone Equine Hospital with the Clovelly team. The high case load, efficiency and immense experience of the team offered me the opportunity to expand and develop my critical care and foal medicine knowledge and skills in a short time. The dedication and enthusiasm of the team was very inspiring. I am looking forward to the next foaling season in the northern hemisphere to apply the acquired knowledge and experience!'
