VSH Hong Kong is seeking specialists in Emergency and Critical Care

,

Veterinary Specialty Hospital (VSH)

VSH Hong Kong, open since 2014, is a world class medical facility in the heart of Hong Kong Island - the first and only dedicated specialty referral hospital in Hong Kong. Hong Kong pet owners go to remarkable lengths to treat their pets’ medical conditions. Our referral and emergency caseload is large and growing rapidly. To enhance our collaborative relationship with the referring veterinary community, we do not offer general practice services.

We are looking for a talented criticalist who is a team player and who values working in a collaborative environment, based on mutual respect and support. Specialist referral is a relatively new concept to Hong Kong, therefore, cultivating professional relationships through communication with referring veterinarians and delivering outstanding patient and client care are fundamental to the position.

Hong Kong is a culturally rich, diverse and safe city with countless opportunities to experience a variety of distinctive cultures. 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.

Please email a letter of interest, CV and references in complete confidence.
