We are interested in speaking with experienced ER DVMs, internship trained DVMs, and new grads or GP DVMs who have an interest in emergency medicine. ER Mentorship is available! While experience in emergency medicine is an incredible plus, we are most interested in a candidate’s work ethic and focus on our core philosophies (client service and patient care). Dependability and willingness to learn/accept feedback will always be more important to us than any specific experience. If you are looking to practice high quality, progressive medicine in a collaborative team environment that provides exceptional patient care and client service we want to hear from you!
