Are you searching for a clinic with a supportive environment that will help you learn and grow as a veterinarian? We are looking for a new graduate that is passionate about being in the equine field and is looking for mentorship from a team of veterinarians. We are an ambulatory and hospital-based practice located near Richmond, Virginia. We see a wide range of cases across many disciplines. Whether you are passionate about history, arts, gardens, antiques, fine dining, outdoor recreation, theme parks, or NASCAR, there’s something for every taste in the Historic Richmond Region. You can’t beat the location with our proximity to the ocean, the mountains, and Washington D.C.
We are a team of 8 veterinarians, 4 licensed veterinary technicians, and a great staff of veterinary assistants, schedulers, office and barn staff. We value our collaborative environment with two surgeons, a theriogenologist, and sports medicine oriented doctors with backgrounds in ISELP, chiropractic, and acupuncture. Our ambulatory team and interns rotate through an on call schedule and have the direct support of our surgery team for any cases that need referral to the hospital. We are well equipped with digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, arthroscopy, shockwave, nuclear scintigraphy, regenerative abilities, etc. Our dedicated team of assistants and technicians provide around the clock monitoring for our hospitalized patients, allowing our interns to focus on case management experience and mentorship opportunities during hospital rotations.
When visitors come through our hospital they often comment on how great the people are that work here and how wonderful of a community we have. Our core purpose is to honor the human-horse bond. We value the people that are part of our team, without the people none of the work we do could happen. We believe in getting our boots dirty - everyone and every role matters! We all pitch in to help each other out, no matter the task. We are a steadfast partner for our clients and our staff. And we value continued learning - we call it engaging the 4x4! We are willing to try new things and venture down new paths in order to achieve the best outcomes.
If you are looking to join a well established practice with a great team of people, this could be the place for you!
Primary duties will include routine clinical and intensive care, patient management, surgical assistance. Interns are also responsible for assisting the primary clinicians with emergency, imaging, sports medicine, and lameness cases. The interns will gain invaluable hands-on experience while acquiring decision making and client communication skills. The first several months direct supervision will be provided. As the year progresses, the amount of direct supervision will decrease based on primary clinician comfort and intern experience. As skills progress our interns will handle primary ambulatory on-call responsibility and will receive 100% of any ambulatory emergency fees they generate.
