Full time job opening for a small animal veterinarian
We are looking for a small animal practitioner who wants to join our multi-doctor small animal clinic located in Chester, VT. Rockingham Veterinary Clinic has been around since the 1980s, but recently moved to a spacious, newly renovated facility in the heart of Chester. Rockingham Veterinary Clinic was purchased in late 2019 by Vermont New Hampshire Veterinary Clinic, a 9 doctor AAHA accredited mixed animal hospital located 30 minutes south in East Dummerston, VT. The two clinics support each other (we refer to them as sister clinics), and doctors frequently practice at both locations. We continue to grow and expand our clientele, yet strive to retain that small-town feel.
Why we are awesome:
We value quality of life – we strive to get our doctors out on time so they can enjoy family time. Your free time belongs to you!
We offer a friendly, supportive environment where your colleagues consider you a friend
Our staff and practice manager support you, and our front desk staff does an amazing job at booking (no double-booked appointments!).
Flexible work schedule – if you prefer evenings, great! Need ¾ days to pick up kids? Only want to work days? We can make that happen.
Weekly doctor meetings – owners and practice manager all come, and once a month everyone attends and has a voice! We are always striving to improve.
Low staff turnover – doctors come and stay until they retire.
Established and loyal client base.
Relocation bonus $5,000.
Ultrasound, as well as a DR radiograph system, and digital dental x-ray.
In-house IDEXX blood and urine machines.
24 hour emergency/specialty hospitals are available for referral in the area.
Chiropractic and acupuncture certification beneficial, but not required.
The finer details
Mentorship is encouraged, and available for those who need it, as there are 2 other doctors on during week days
Four, 8-hour days/week with 2 weekend days per month. Appointments end an hour prior to shift end (time for notes and call backs!).
Pay is salaried per diem, including 1 weekend a month on duty, plus an emergency fee for each case seen on the weekend worked.
Paid vacation, health insurance stipend, dues/licenses/DEA/liability insurance covered, CE stipend and paid CE days.
We currently only offer evening appointments on Thursday at RVC; VTNH offers them Monday through Friday.
Urgent hours are 8am-5pm Saturday (appts booked 9-12) and Sunday, with an assistant available. Urgent hours are offered at VTNH to simplify staffing.
Start-date is flexible. Our ideal candidate is experienced, but we will consider the right new graduate. An interest in surgery, including dentistry, is desired but not required as we have a great full time doctor who loves surgery.
Both locations have easy access to the highway for travel, and traffic is not an issue.
Please contact Robert Sturk (practice manager) at email@example.com, Dr Warner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the practice directly at 802-254-5422 and speak with our phenomenal front desk staff!
