Type of Work: Small Animal Associate Veterinarian
Job Details: This experienced, friendly and progressive team is seeking a full-time licensed Veterinarian to join their growing clinic in the city of Grande Prairie, Alberta.
Their team of experienced Veterinarians is supported by 6 awesome RVTs & an incredible support staff roster. They are looking to nurture the establishment of an additional full-time Veterinarian. They celebrate best practices, and support one another. They work collaboratively, and have regular doctor’s meetings to ensure consistency and open communication. Together, they run a busy clinic, and it is this togetherness and commitment to each other that has led to success and such a loyal client base. In support of your medicine, you will have an in-house lab coupled with Cornerstone, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, laser therapy, and ultrasound available.
You will be scheduled for 32 – 40 hours over 4 or 5 days based on personal preference and business need, and while they do require on-call shifts, the service is shared with another veterinary clinic.
Experienced veterinarians are welcome, and we will most definitely consider a new graduate as their team is highly skilled and passionate about mentoring. The opportunities for professional growth in this modern small animal practice are limited only by your imagination! You will be able to independently provide clients with a comprehensive plan from start to finish.
