Burwash Equine Services is in an exciting stage of growth and transition, and we are looking for the right person to join us. We are open to veterinarians with a variety of skill sets that would allow us to add a new associate to our team this winter. Our ideal candidate will have a minimum of an internship, with 3-5 years of clinical experience a major asset. If you can see yourself as part of our team, let’s talk.
This well established practice is independently owned and managed by two women who share a strong focus on operating our practice as one of the most well respected in Canada, always doing what we feel is best for the patient. Our goal is to pass this trait on when training and mentoring our new associates, interns, and students. We are passionate about creating a practice that allows an equal focus on raising our kids, spending time with our families, and pursuing the hobbies that we are passionate about outside of veterinary medicine.
We feel there is an alarming industry trend of equine veterinarians leaving clinical practice, and we intend to be a part of the solution. We have seen how moving to a 4 day work week can increase both job satisfaction and productivity, and we feel this is the right time for our practice to take that step. After hours responsibilities are usually shared among four senior veterinarians, providing backup for our interns who see most emergencies independently after their first two months. When not on call, you are not working; the on call veterinarian takes over case responsibility.
We pay salary rather than production, and we feel it has always contributed to our collaborative team approach that both clients and staff consistently comment on. We have a loyal client base that includes everyone from high level English and Western athletes to hardworking ranch horses to backyard pets. In August, we opened a brand new >12,000 sq ft hospital facility, and were blown away with over 500 clients attending the grand opening celebration and dance. The new hospital features a state of the art surgical suite and client viewing area, induction and recovery with walkways that allow rope recoveries that are truly as safe as possible for both patient and staff, innovative isolation stalls, three private exam rooms, and a separate lameness and reproduction center. We are proud to be the University of Calgary's Distributed Veterinary Learning Community's Practice of the Year in 2018.
If you want to be a part of a team that will support your goals and your family, and help you to practice the best medicine possible, this is the time to join us. Please send a letter of interest, CV, and contact info for 2-3 references to Dr. Crystal Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
