Job Description: Full-time, part-time or relief Associate Veterinarian needed for a busy small animal practice in State College, PA.  My mom has recently been diagnosed with liver cancer so I desperately need a second vet so I can help care for her! Experience preferred but will definitely consider a qualified new grad.

I will help cover relocation costs!

 

Candidate is responsible for providing the highest quality medical, surgical and dental care. Candidate should be detail oriented, provide exceptional customer service, and display care and concern for patients. Applicant must have the ability to work as a member of our team, communicate well and with respect to pet owners and staff members, and provide detailed patient medical record keeping.

 

The practice software is Avimark. The practice is mostly dogs and cats, but we do see some pocket pets and can expand there if interested. Surgical caseload is about 50% dentistry and a good range of soft tissue. If you have a special strength or area of interest let me know and I will try to support your skill! There is a local ER for after hours emergencies.

 

We offer preventative care, wellness and sick care, in-house Idexx laboratory and diagnostics, surgery, laser surgery, general dentistry with digital dental radiography, in-house pharmacy and prescription diets/treats, digital radiography,  MyLab Gold ultrasonography, Class IV laser therapy, and end of life care.

 

Candidate preference will be given to those with internship or 2+ years of experience and long term interest, including buy-in potential for the right match, but recent graduates are welcome to apply.

 

SCVH is a privately owned business looking for a genuine, enthusiastic, compassionate, caring veterinarian to add to our family-like atmosphere. We are fortunate to have a team that emphasizes care and compassion and we are proud of our excellent customer service. Three of my team members have been with me for 10 years or longer. We are looking for someone who is enthused by providing quality care for our patients and clients.

 

The current work schedule is set at 35 hours one week, and 40 hours the alternate week for FT (a 5 hour shift on Saturday every other week). On the long days we block off an hour lunch, on the short days (5 hours) we do not. I set 1/2 hour wellness and sick appointments, and 15 minute booster or brief exams, and block off 2-3 slots per 5 hour shifts for sick or same day issues.

 

Benefit package includes sick/vacation  time, liability insurance, dues and licenses, CE stipend and time, health insurance about 80% funded for primary, VIN membership, AFLAC supplemental insurances, and retirement plan match after 1 year employment.

 

SCVH is located in central Pennsylvania near Penn State University. State College is nestled in the center of the state, 2.5-3  hours from Pittsburgh, Philly, and Ithaca. State College is a college town that can attract entertainment usually seen in bigger cities (Blake Shelton played recently), but has a small town feel. You are going to see your client at the grocery store.The area boasts of four beautiful seasons and endless activities to keep you busy year round! Hiking, skiing, fishing and water activities are all close by. Do you like to bike? kayak? Fly fish? check, check, check.

 

Need good schools? check.

 

I bought the practice in 1988, and  did a major renovation/update in 2014. We include a small kennel in our operation (6 runs, a dozen cages). We currently employ 2 FT veterinarians and 12 support staff. I would love to see what you could bring to our team! Check us out on  Facebook or our webpage www.statecollegevethosp.com!

Please email me your resume or give me a call for more information. Fax  814-234-3734 and email is stonefencefarm@yahoo.com.
