January 12, 2018
Santa Fe, New Mexico
350.00 - 25.00
Type & Experience Level:
Part Time - More than seven years
I am looking for an seasoned, self-directed practitioner who is looking to change life paths. I need to find someone who is willing to work anywhere from 1 to 4 days per week, and be on call those same nights and some weekends. The schedule will depend on season.
A flexible job, in large part determined by your own needs and wants. This will pay a competitive daily base salary and a high percentage of production. The days you work, you will also be on call night. You will be off and away the rest of the time.
Partnership is a possibility for the right person.
I am hiring because I have created a great referral practice but cannot do it alone. I just need a break a small percentage of the time, but still providing service to the region. I need to know that when I am away, the practice is still functioning.
Santa Fe, NM is considered an international destination for culture and art. Recently named by National Geographic Magazine as the city with the greatest "sense of place".
The region is also a mecca for anyone enjoying the outdoors. Within an hour drive, it offers landscapes from high chapparal/high deserts and canyons to alpine country and skiing. Hunting, fishing, mountain biking, equine activities, you name it.
This position is for a very experienced, skilled practitioner who is looking to only work part-time (intensely)and spend the majority of their time doing other things.
You will need the following skills.
Surgery. I will prefer someone who is proficient at colic surgery. On your few nights on call, you will need to be willing to take on a colic surgery or other surgical emergency, working with a trained staff. You might be operating alone or with an intern only.
You need to be able to confidently take on almost any equine emergency, and at least route it to an appropriate provider.
Excellent lameness and performance horse work including confidence taking and interpreting radiographs, ultrasounding, and specialized performance horse diagnostics and treatment.
Excellent interpersonal client and staff skills.
You will need to build relationships and be a rain maker for the practice, during the small periods of time that you do work. Your name and reputation alone needs to garner respect for and potentially bring business to the practice.
Additional Salary Information: $350.00/day base plus 23% production beyond $1000.00 collected. 100% emergency fees collected. $1000.00 bonus for each colic surgery performed when I am not around. AAEP reg fee, $1000 CE allowance. PLIT.
