Wilmington Animal Hospital Associate Veterinarian Position: Work-life balance and making a difference in the lives of patients and people!
Are you looking for a veterinary position where you can make a difference in your patients’ and clients’ lives? In your community? Are you looking for a good work-life balance – where work is important, but so is having time away from your job? Interested in diverse cases and continued learning?
Wilmington Animal Hospital in Wilmington, DE is looking for a full-time associate veterinarian. Our privately-owned multi-doctor hospital has been serving the community of North Wilmington since 1940 and we continue to grow by practicing thorough and thoughtful medicine. We believe in the overriding principle of what is best for the patient and best for the client is what is best for our hospital. We treat our staff with respect and strive to have a fun work atmosphere. We believe in community involvement and work closely with Delaware Humane Association.
Our doctors are long-term employees because of our thorough, individualized, high quality medicine, work-life balance, flexibility, excellent staff, and a supportive and collaborative environment (among doctors and technical staff). A typical doctor’s schedule consists of 4 to 6 hour shifts seeing appointments. We believe this allows the doctors to have personal time before or after their shift, allows them to be as attentive to their last appointment of the shift as their first appointment of the shift, and allows for them to have time for completion of medical records and messages. Appointments are 20 to 50 minutes depending on the reason for the visit.
Doctors that perform surgery have a dedicated “surgery day” to allow for complete patient care without the stress of having to finish in time to see appointments. There is no after hours on-call for patients as we have several great emergency clinics in the area. In addition to a full in-house laboratory and digital x-ray, we offer ultrasound appointments with a board-certified radiologist one day per week. We also offer procedures with a board-certified traveling surgeon.
Doctor compensation is negotiable (base + commission) and includes continuing education, VIN membership, Plumb access, and On the Floor at Dove access. Full-time positions also include health insurance, disability insurance, 401K with match, DE license, DEA license, liability insurance, and DVMA membership. Our time-off policy is generous and flexible with the overriding principles of only one doctor off on a given day and willingness to cover for others as they would cover for you.
We are willing to mentor and are looking for an associate with the following attributes:
Good people skills – we are on a first-name basis with many of our clients and value our relationships because they help our patients to receive better care.
Team player – our patient and client care is a team approach; our doctor–staff interactions should be fun, collaborative, and positive.
Reliability and Efficiency
Thorough and thoughtful medical care and excellent medical record-keeping
Surgery and Dentistry (with dental radiographs) Skills (preferred, but willing to teach!)
