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.

The Animal Emergency Medical Center of New England is seeking a Criticalist to join our AAHA-Accredited, 24-hour emergency, multi-doctor practice in Nashua, New Hampshire - located just 35 miles north of the city of Boston and 1 mile away from the Massachusetts border.

We offer competitive compensation to include comprehensive benefits package and re-location assistance. Please inquire about our Summer Sign-On Bonus!

This position will provide a quality assurance to our hospital and oversight of our 24-Hour emergency department. Our emergency and critical care department is fully staffed and equipped to handle a busy and varied caseload. This is not a new position and, while working with 24-hour ICU and our Surgery department that was established in 2005, you will have the opportunity to create your own practice and contribute to your department and hospital at large.

Our goal is to continue to push the envelope and stay current with the best treatment options and techniques. We encourage growth, innovation, and additional training. Candidates must be willing to work with our management team in supporting our veterinary medical team, satellite practice(s), and local referring veterinarian community through effective communication, professionalism, medical leadership, and education (beyond providing continuing education opportunities).

Our 24-hour animal hospital has been a part of our local community for 33 years and an AAHA member for 25 years. The practice cares for patients from the surrounding suburban areas and is the only 24-hour animal hospital in New Hampshire to embrace a hybrid practice model that has primary care, emergency care and specialty care in one location. This model fosters a continuity of care and exceptional medicine.

Our professional management team has worked with our Emergency Clinicians and Board-Certified Surgeon to create a referral practice with a small and intimate feel for our clients but yet still offer the services found at a larger referral practice. Our gorgeous, modern facility is located in a quintessential New-England style barn and offers a relaxing, calm, home-friendly environment – ideal for healing and de-stressing. It has 13 exam rooms, a fully-equipped ICU, 3 surgical suites, and 2 special procedure rooms for digital x-ray, ultrasound, and endoscopy. While we offer customized veterinary care to our patients, we adhere to functional work-flows that are beneficial to our doctors and allow for a diverse caseload.

Our veterinarians enjoy set schedules that allow for a quality of life and a professional management team that supports them in their daily practice. We have a large dedicated support staff and a team of doctors with varied interests and skills. We believe in taking a collaborative approach to medicine which allows us to provide the best care for every patient. Our laid-back, positive work culture is ideal for creating an exceptional client experience and for encouraging doctor and staff growth and advancement.

Our Medical Directors have 30+ years of experience in practice and will offer coaching and mentoring to the right newly board-certified candidate; they provide ongoing training, support, and assistance to our medical team.

The city of Nashua, New Hampshire is 35 miles north of Boston (right next door to Dunstable, Massachusetts) and, thanks to new additional public transportation routes, an easy 4 hours away from New York City. We are a short drive to Boston International Airport and the Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, N.H. Our "Gate City" location is 1 hour away from the N.H. Lakes and Mountain Regions and Maine Seacoast. No matter your preference, there is always an abundance of activities to do in each of our four seasons in New England!
