The city serves as the major transport hub in Southeast Asia, allowing for convenient regional and international travel. Known as “Asia’s World City,” English is an official language in Hong Kong, along with Cantonese. With a large and thriving expat population, Hong Kong has everything from easy-to-access beaches, hiking trails and nature reserves, to all the amenities of one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Hong Kong is truly an extraordinary place to live!

We currently offer Surgery, Ophthalmology, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, and Anesthesiology and are seeking specialists in other fields. Equipment in our 15,000 sq ft facility includes digital radiography, ultrasound and echocardiography, fluoroscopy, rigid and flexible endoscopy, and a 16-slice Siemens CT. In-house pharmaceutical compounding has just been launched, and planning is underway to add MRI. The possibilities are endless! The VSH team is paving the way for specialized medicine, elevating veterinary medicine in Hong Kong and throughout Asia.

There is a generous compensation and benefits package, including allowance for cost of living and relocation.

Candidates must be board-certified or have completed an ACVECC/ECVECC approved residency training program in emergency and critical care medicine.
