Life as an Intern: Luis Garcia Roldán

Luis Garcia Roldán is a Spanish rotating intern based at here at Eastcott Veterinary Referrals in Swindon. He joined us in July 2021 and is aiming to become a specialist in internal medicine.

“Day to day, I assist clinicians with duties of care including physical examinations, taking clinical histories of our patients and liaising with their owners. I also provide out of hours care with the support of the team. Communication is so important – interns work very closely with clinicians and nurses to ensure that our patients receive the very best care.”

His internship has enabled Luis to learn from a range of experienced colleagues across Eastcott. 

“By working with a multidisciplinary team, I’ve been able to discuss a variety of clinical cases and approaches with different specialists. It’s very rewarding to learn from a highly skilled veterinary and nursing team.

“Being non-native, I’m also working in a language that isn’t my mother tongue but my colleagues at Eastcott have been very supportive.”

In his spare time, Luis enjoys walking, swimming and travelling.
