ENJOY THE INDEPENDENCE OF A HOUSE CALL PRACTICE WITH THE FREEDOM TO SERVE YOUR COMMUNITY. NO SALARY CAP; MAY QUALIFY FOR FEDERAL LOAN FORGIVENESS PROGRAM!
Come help us create a community-centric house-call practice with a heart. We are starting several Heal Impact Practices in Reno. If you love it and stay for three years, you can expect a significant income increase.
Did you know that 75% of pets in resource deserts have never seen a vet before? You can change that and experience what it means to practice the art of medicine–your way. This is your fresh-start chance to create a legacy of individualized care, inclusion, and equity in a nature-lover’s paradise with great need and opportunity. We hope half the pets in our practice will be from families that experience insecurities, like geographical, age, financial, or language vulnerability.
Each of our veterinarians gets to choose their own assistant and controls their own schedule. Tired of financial euthanasia? Each veterinarian will also have their own fund of up to $117,000 to provide low cost services at their own discretion.
Build a future you can rely on! You’ll receive ongoing operational support from a great team to ensure the practice is profitable and sustainable in the long-term AND the support to treat the clients you love—meaning you have the power to protect your quality of life for years to come.
This full-time position with the new non-profit, Petopia, in partnership with Heal House Call Veterinarian, has flexible hours, mentoring, long-term potential, unlimited vacation, and ownership opportunity. Partnership opportunity with SPCA of Northern Nevada if you miss in-clinic services. Salary opportunities grow each year and work-life balance is emphasized. We know it sounds too good to be true (thanks to our funding partners, it really is an incredible opportunity), so please take the time to learn more and email us with any questions.
The perfect candidate will:
be positive and caring,
want to operate productive and meaningful general house call practice,
love spending one-on-one time with pets and their families,
appreciate a good challenge,
commit to spending part of their time providing subsidized care to vulnerable community members like seniors, veterans, and those with language barriers,
enjoy the opportunity to be a positive role model in the community,
demonstrate strong commitment to inclusion and equity,
and enjoy collaboration with community partners.
Don’t be cramped in a practice that doesn’t reflect your professional style—this one will! We encourage new and seasoned graduates to apply. Spanish fluency or the desire to learn Spanish is a plus.
