We are keen on introducing technology and working with local shelters. We are frequently involved in feline clinical trials through VCA’s Clinical Trial Department. Our dedicated client base continues to grow.
Applicants must have a strong interest in and passion for feline internal medicine/behavior/surgery and must be team players with good communication skills. Dental skills and/or interest a plus. Interested in hospital leadership? Medical Director possible for the right F/T candidate. Great benefits. Salary/base pay commensurate with experience.
Come enjoy our gorgeous cityscape, our friendly Midwestern people, our out-of-this-world culinary diversity and our packed-full-of-fun Chicago summers! As a corporate practice, we can enjoy the tremendous benefits and perks that are associated with corporate ownership. We believe in hard work, and in the value of work-life balance. We strive to foster belonging and empowerment for all members of our team. We maintain the same small family culture that we enjoyed prior to our corporate ownership, and we remain dedicated to making sure our veterinarians, as well as our team, can fulfill and advance themselves professionally and still be able to enjoy life outside of work.
(And that’s not all! Coincidentally, 3 of our 4 veterinarians are OSU College of Vet Med grads – and our Tufts grad would welcome another Buckeye -- or even a non Buckeye!)
