VCA Animal Diagnostic Clinic, VCA’s leading specialty practice serving North Texas and the Dallas metroplex area, is seeking Veterinarians (non-boarded) to join our team as full-time Hospitalists.
ADC is a high-volume specialty referral practice offering Small Animal Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Medical and Radiation Oncology, and Critical Care cases for direct referrals.
Our team of hospitalist allows for 24-hour 7 day a week doctor care for inpatients. The team of three hospitalists supervises the implementation of treatment plans created by the veterinary specialist and medically manages changes with patient status during non-admitting hours. Additionally, ADC plans to further maximize our hospitalists by implementing after-hours admittance only for current ADC patients with acute illness. At this time, we are not a 24-hour walk-in emergency center.
We believe the best candidates for this position are those with an interest in critical care case management and those who wish to participate in the evolution of a rapidly growing hospital and future ER service. Those with an interest and ideas in growing a critical care department should strongly consider this position.
This is a unique, opportunity for an emergency veterinarian or primary care veterinarian to bypass the more stressful aspects of client-centric veterinary medicine while working alongside specialists to grow their skills in intensive case management.
At the ADC our hospitalists enjoy a respectful, inclusive environment, as well as a short workweek, which allows for an improved quality of life. Our typical hospitalist schedule can be seen below:
36-hour work weeks
12-hour shifts 3 days a week (that is 4 days off a week!)
In addition to flexible employment opportunities, our hospital offers a strongly competitive salary that lacks production goals, provides access to high caliber equipment, and fosters an inclusive and respectful hospital culture.
As a member of the VCA family, eligible full-time employees will have access to a comprehensive benefits package, including:
Health & Wellness
Innovative associate health and wellbeing department (Headspace app subscriptions, Vault financial wellness tool, and access to additional mental health resources)
Continuing Education Allowance and paid Continuing Education Days
WOOF University – offering abundant CE for Doctors and Staff
VCA Academy’s Mentorship Program – participate as a mentee or mentor in a GP or ER setting
Opportunities to participate in ADC’s growing Clinical Studies department
Up to 100% Pet Care Discount for your own pets
100% paid professional liability coverage
100% paid life insurance
100% paid short-term disability insurance
Access to a network of 5,000 doctors, including more than 600 specialists
At the Animal Diagnostic Clinic, we insist upon a high standard of veterinary care and strive to cultivate a healthy working environment to ensure a strong quality of life for our employees.
Benefits: We offer competitive compensation along with a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental, vision and paid vacation/sick days, 401(k), generous employee pet discounts and more!
