We are looking for a full time veterinarian to join our organization’s growing veterinary team. With our medical team of 9 veterinarians having a wide range of experience in medicine and surgery and a large support staff, we work as independently as we like and as collaboratively as we need to provide high quality care for the pets we see. As a progressive, non-profit organization, we strive to provide the highest quality of medical care to our patients while also providing subsidized prices for those who qualify so that we can offer help to every needy pet.
Our Springfield Community Vet Hospital sees scheduled 30 minute appointments and 15 minute follow-ups on weekdays during daytime hours and half-day on Saturdays. Our clinic is equipped with a full dental and surgical suite including digital dental x-ray and a Cardell veterinary monitoring system as well as digital x-ray, ultrasound and in-house blood analyzers. We see daytime emergencies as we are able but no evening or after-hours emergencies to allow our staff more time for their life outside of work.
We offer a wide range of veterinary services at our 3 Massachusetts community hospitals and our veterinarians are supported in developing their abilities and interests. We especially encourage areas that will add to our ability to help patients or will support the services that we currently offer and we are eager to offer extra training for veterinary diagnostics and treatments such as ultrasound, cardiology and dentistry for those with an interest in these fields.
At our hospitals, choose between practicing general medicine and general surgery or medicine alone depending on your interests. Vaccine clinics and offsite community outreach veterinary work are also occasionally available. We need a resourceful team player with good communication skills who desires to work for a non-corporate community practice and can meet the challenges of a work day with a positive attitude and compassion.
We offer a competitive salary based on each veterinarian’s experience level and abilities as well as a benefits package including health and dental insurance, 403b plan (non-profit equivalent of 401k), professional licenses reimbursement, VIN membership, CE allowances and discounted pet services. Our veterinarians may also qualify for the PSLF program.
We can also offer hours at our main clinic in North Brookfield. For new or recent graduates we offer a mentoring program at our North Brookfield clinic and exposure to a diversity of surgical and medical cases that is rarely seen in community practice.
We need a resourceful team player with good communication skills who desires to work for a non-corporate community practice and can meet the challenges of a work day with a positive attitude and compassion. Any experience level will be considered for employment. Our Springfield location requires a minimum of 1 year of experience.
