DVM or equivalent
Internal Number: 1
The position we are looking to looking to fill is available now. We currently have 1 employed veterinarian who also happens to be the founder of the practice in 1970. At this point he also assumes the responsibilities of any after-hours emergencies as well as overnight care of any hospitalized patients. We currently have 1 other veterinarian who functions as an independent contractor. Between the 2 veterinarians we service the community 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday. Currently, on Wednesdays the office is open but with no veterinarian. The only appointments scheduled would be for the technicians only. Ultimately, we are looking for a full time candidate, but can be flexible with how we get to that point. We would like to be able to offer appointments 6 days/week again, with surgeries/procedures being admitted and performed in the early morning prior to AM appointments. AM appointments usually are scheduled from 10 am until 12 or so, and afternoon appointments begin between 2 and 3 per doctor's preference. While we would certainly consider another independent contract scenario, ultimately we are looking for a candidate who would like to become an employee with aspirations of becoming more involved in practice operations in the future.
