We're seeking additional DVMs that have a passion for ER and a desire to be a part of a practice that places a priority on the health and harmony of our entire team. We're an independently, female-owned, multi-location emergency practice on the Front Range of Colorado. Our flagship location is an AAHA-accredited, VECCS II Certified (one of only two in Colorado!), 24/7 emergency practice, within a larger specialty hospital. We have opened a 2nd location to meet the high demand in our growing community. Ideal candidates for either location will be passionate about emergency medicine, kind, compassionate, and willing to foster a positive culture while leading our strong technical team. For exceptional newer graduate candidates, with or without internship training, we are developing a comprehensive mentorship program.
Based in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado (http://www.choosecoloradosprings.com), our flagship resides within the Veterinary Specialty Center (VSC), a 24-hour small-animal specialty hospital fully equipped with endoscopy, bronchoscopy, digital radiology, multiple surgical suites with ventilators, ultrasound, high-flow oxygen, and CT scan. The patients for our new location, Central, will also be accommodated by these specialty services. Both locations maintain state-of-the-art veterinary equipment and laboratory, with blood chemistry, full differential CBC, coagulation profile, blood gas analyzers, and Sedivue urinalysis machine, sevoflurane anesthesia, telemetry and patient monitors (ECG, temperature, capnography, pulse oximetry, oscillometric, and direct arterial blood pressure), and therapeutic laser. AERC has a diverse caseload, serving over 15,000 emergent / urgent cases annually. AERC's emergency doctors practice progressive medicine, with ready access to board certified veterinary specialists.
Our full-time schedule consists of 10-13 shifts per month with an average of 36-40 scheduled hours per week. Depending on location, a combination of 8, 10, and 12 hours shifts are offered. Swing and overnight shifts are available, with a shift differential offered for overnight shifts. Our doctors rotate through weekends and holidays, which allows for desired / requested weekend and holiday time off for all doctors throughout the year. We strive to provide balance for our entire team and attempt to accommodate all reasonable schedule requests.
Required Education: Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM / VMD)
Required Licenses: State Veterinary Board required prior to start date.
We offer a very competitive salary, complemented by health, dental, and vision coverage options, a 401(k) retirement plan with matching contributions, a generous CE allowance, uniform allowance, professional dues, employee pet discounts, and a balanced schedule to enjoy all that Colorado has to offer. To ensure our associates get a chance to recharge & refresh, we currently provide a 30-day Sabbatical after every 36 consecutive months.
