Wanted: Part-Time/Full-time Associate Veterinarian for busy small animal general practice northwest of Boston. We are looking for an anchor position due to career change + tiered retirement.
We are a busy, long-established small animal hospital fortunate to have experienced staff and a dedicated client base, generally allowing advanced work-ups in-house. We're located near several specialty/ER hospitals, so attending doctors have the freedom to refer when in the best interest of the patient. Most appointments are 30 min, often with urgent care drop-offs. No overnight hours, but limited on-call (mostly phone consultation) 1-2 weekday evenings and rotating weekends.
Our Assets: Mobile boarded DACVS for advanced surgical cases available q4-6wk, and mobile boarded DACVIM(Cardio) for AUS/echos q2wk. In-house small US unit for AFAST/TFAST/cysto (with plans to upgrade), Tonovet, Doppler BP, SurgiVet, Idexx Sedivue/Catalyst/Procyte, digital radiology with teleradiology consults on demand, digital dental radiology. Currently docs read own cytologies (with option for path review via Idexx), and occasionally double-check UAs, platelet counts, blood smear cell morphology.
We currently have paper records, but have Cornerstone EMR software, and are in the process of transitioning to “paper-light” over the next year. We are also considering options for physical expansion in the next couple years to meet the needs of our growing clientele. As such, candidates must be flexible for upcoming changes in protocols and workflow as needed.
Our hospital is located near the intersection of Routes 93 and 95, with easy access to Boston, North Shore, Cape Cod Ferry. The Berkshires, White Mountains, and Maine coast are within a couple hours by car, for those who enjoy boating, skiing, hiking, etc.
Seeking candidate with at least two years' experience, available for some weekdays (flexible scheduling; appointments generally run 9am-12pm, and 2pm-5:30pm; add-ons may be authorized by doctor on duty) plus 1-2 Saturdays (appointments 9am-1pm) per month. We do not offer overnight care. Docs rotate through on-call schedule between the hours of 6am and 10pm; this typically amounts to phone consultation for one weekday each week, and one to two weekends per month. Production bonus is offered if you see a patient outside of clinic hours. Soft tissue surgery experience and advanced dentistry training/CE is required. Excellent communication skills and bedside manner are a must. Previous Cornerstone EMR software experience is favorable. Generally will be working alongside established associate doc at all times; collegial case discussion is strongly encouraged and supported. Candidates must be licensed to practice in MA, with DEA and MA controlled substances registration.
Additional Salary Information: All FT employees are eligible for tiered PTO (dependent on number of years with the practice), 401K plans, health insurance. Optional leveraged-pricing benefits include vision, dental, life, and disability. Allowances for CE, professional registration and associations, and uniform are included.
