Southwest Equine Hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona has a position available for a Board-Certified or Board-Eligible Equine Surgeon. SWEH is a well-established 100% equine practice with an expanding caseload. We pride ourselves on having a team-oriented approach to patient care; SWEH veterinarians collaborate to provide the absolute best care for the horse without exception.
The successful applicant will join a Board-Certified Surgeon, Board-Certified Internist and General Practitioner / Acupuncturist with a mind towards continued growth of the practice and commitment to providing exceptional patient care. We frequently collaborate with a Board-Certified Equine Dental Specialist and Board-Certified Ophthalmologists. Interested applicants must have a passion for emergency surgery, elective surgery, and sports medicine, as well as a sincere willingness to provide general medicine and preventive care services.
SWEH is a full-service ambulatory and referral hospital with wireless DR, portable ultrasound, portable shockwave, regenerative therapies, upper airway endoscopy / laser, gastroscopy, arthroscopy and full in-house laboratory. The OR is well equipped and anesthesia is always administered and monitored by a veterinarian. Advanced imaging (MRI, Nuclear Scintigraphy) is available at nearby equine hospitals, with patients returning to SWEH for treatment and follow-up. Emergency duty is shared on a rotational basis, and the majority of our after-hours ambulatory emergencies are attended by our interns.
Scottsdale and the surrounding Phoenix metro area is an excellent area to live, work and play with ample opportunities for culture, enrichment and fun! Arizona is an absolute mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, as we have >300 sunny, warm (or hot!) days per year... no more frozen fingers while trying to suture up a laceration! There is fantastic hiking, biking, rock climbing, and water sports within 30 minutes of the hospital, and winter fun (skiing / snowboarding) is only 2 hours away.
Salary is commensurate with experience. Benefits include PTO, Health & Liability Insurance, CE stipend, and membership dues.
