Love your job again as an Associate Relief Vet.
We took what makes associate work stable and combined it with what makes relief work flexible to create IndeVets. That means you’ll get proper pay for all the hours you work, full benefits, and total control over your schedule — backed by a community of like-minded vets who get it and want to help you thrive in your career.
As a W2 employee with full benefits your salary will be guaranteed for both full- and part-time doctors. FT starts at just 34 hours/week and PT at 25 hours/week.Our FT Associate IndeVets start out with a base that’s over six figures before taking shifts that offer additional compensation.
For those veterinarians who just want to work now and then, picking up shifts when they have the time, we offer “Anytime” status in select markets.
Choose when, where, and how you work.
As an IndeVet, you’ll decide exactly when you work. You set your own schedule and choose shifts from our thousands of partner hospitals close to your home.
