You: A friendly and outgoing veterinary associate who is looking to provide excellent patient care in a small clinic environment to a growing client base. Excellent client communication skills that are practiced with a smile, willingness to embrace change and technology as well as a willingness to lead the patient care team members working with you on a daily basis are a must. We are a busy practice that wants to leverage our team to the max so our associates are doing the things they went to school for. A moderate level of computer skills are required for all positions (Windows based programs, internet, email etc.). Interest in learning new technology is a must. If you enjoy doing something different every day, having regular challenges and new things to learn, then you are who we are looking for! We are happy to consider new graduates looking for mentorship options both as a doctor and as a leader. We have standard medical equipment in our practice (in-house labs, digital radiography, digital dental, simple ultrasound for cystocentesis etc.) and are excited to be building our dental suite. If we don't have the equipment you're dreaming of, we have a wish list we can add it to - we like to dream as a team.
