The Ann Arbor Animal Hospital is seeking an experienced full-time or part-time daytime veterinarian who desires both general practice and emergency outpatients. Hospitalized patients are managed by our critical care team. We are a 24-hour AAHA accredited hospital that has been serving Ann Arbor and the surrounding area for approximately 90 years. We are primarily a “walk-in” hospital and day time practice including many wellness visits as well as sick patients. Our General Practice model could be best described as an Urgent Care and Primary Care hospital. This position offers the opportunity to see established general practice clients, emergency outpatients, and practice soft-tissue surgery. The schedule consists largely of weekday shifts with rotating weekends and holidays. Weekend shifts include “walk-in hours” as well as emergency outpatient support for sick patients. Our facility is state of the art with all the tools needed to practice excellent medicine including highly skilled licensed veterinary technicians, an expanded, newly updated state-of-the-art ICU, advanced anesthetic monitoring, anesthetic ventilator, ultrasound, Ligasure, and visiting internists and cardiologists. This is a unique opportunity to practice both general and emergency medicine while working directly alongside other veterinarians - shifts are never solo. Our ideal candidate has completed a rotating internship, is experienced with general practice patients, or has two year’s of emergency medicine experience. Compensation package is competitive including CE, health insurance, SIMPLE IRA, license fees, national/local association dues, etc. Our unique standing in the metro Ann Arbor area makes our hospital a personally and professionally rewarding opportunity.
