Most weeks doctors will work four days and have three days off. If you prefer to work 5 shorter days each week, we can make that happen as well. We are flexible with the doctor scheduling. We are open weekends, but weekend shifts are optional. Because we have several emergency practices in our area, our doctors are not on call.
We’ve worked in corporate medicine and have been frustrated with all the hoops we were made to jump through and the time it takes to effect even small changes such as stocking a new drug. You won’t have to deal with that here. We typically have quarterly doctors’ dinner meetings that allow us to discuss requested changes. We appreciate our doctors making suggestions to improve our practice.
Many practices say they are a family. At CAMC, we really are family. We have departmental managers in place to allow our doctors to focus on medicine instead of dealing with administrative duties. You went to school to practice medicine, so we want you concentrate on that.
CAMC has many long-term team members, both doctors and para staff. Our current team consists of 5 experienced veterinarians who are eager to offer their mentorship and collaboration. We average 3 doctors on schedule on weekdays and 2 on weekends, so young doctors aren’t left on their own without mentorship. Multiple area veterinary specialists are a phone call away for consultation.
While we like to chat and joke around during our workday, we don’t tolerate cliques or drama to bring negativity to our team. Due to the demographics of our area, our client compliance is above average which allows our doctors to recommend and perform high-quality medicine.
