    General Job Description

    Our Criticalists work within the Emergency/Critical Care/Urgent Care department and have primary case responsibility, receiving referrals from primary veterinarians as well as care for the department’s inpatients. Criticalists also help advise on inpatient care for other services, as well as elevate the medical care our medical teams provide by providing formal lecture, didactic, and informal clinic floor CE.
