Virginia Beach-Emergency and daytime positions -Our small animal practice is seeking to expand our veterinary staff, as we transition to a 24 hour practice. We are currently offering daytime and emergency veterinarian positions with flexible hours and a competitive salary and benefits package.
COMPENSATION: We offer a competitive salary (production based with guaranteed minimum-the guaranteed minimum is $100,000 for those doctors working the emergency rotation), benefits package including: health insurance, 401k, PLIT insurance, AVMA dues, Virginia Veterinary license fee, VIN membership, DEA license fee, continuing education allowance and 3 weeks off for vacation and/or CE.
SCHEDULE: The emergency doctors will be scheduled for 7 daytime and 7 overnight shifts per 28 days, providing many days off to enjoy all the outdoor activities our area provides as well as the easy ability to travel. Doctors can choose to work one week on and one week off or divide up their work days differently if it better suits their needs. If you are a doctor who really enjoys emergency medicine but do not enjoy the toll a frequently changing sleep schedule can cause, you may appreciate the ability to sleep at night 3 out of every 4 weeks.
Our daytime doctors typically work four 8 hour shifts per week plus every other Saturday. During these shifts, appointment hours are scheduled in 6- hour blocks, allowing 2 hours for completion of phone calls and charting. Saturday shifts are usually scheduled so that the veterinarian receives a three-day weekend every other week.
ABOUT US: Acredale Animal Hospital is a large general practice that is expanding to 24 hours a day to serve the needs of our clients. Our 11,500 sq. ft. hospital is patient oriented with excellent support staff and equipment. We have two dental suites each with high speed dental equipment and digital dental radiography. We also have standard digital radiography, ultrasound, in house lab equipment, anesthesia monitors, fluid pumps, etc. Essentially all of the equipment you would expect and need in a modern veterinary facility. Please see our website for more information: acredalenaimalhospital.com
Our veterinarians enjoy working and collaborating together to provide the best care for our patients. Having a large team of doctors allows us to constantly learn from each other. We hold doctors meetings twice a month and often have boarded specialists for in house continuing education seminars. New graduates are welcome to apply for the daytime position and will be mentored. We currently perform a large number of dental procedures. Those with significant dental experience and those wishing to gain significant dental experience are encouraged to apply.
If you are interested in the emergency shift, we request at least one year of experience. Multiple years of experience or completion of an internship in emergency medicine is considered a plus for applicants. While any pets in need of care are welcome at our facility, we will not be operating as a typical emergency referral facility. There are a number of other hospitals in our area that serve that need. This should allow our emergency doctors to have a less hectic pace and more time to concentrate on their cases.
If you are interested in becoming a member of our growing team, please contact Dr. Kenneth DeLorenzo at 757-523-6100 or email email@example.com
