Are you burnt out by the hustle and bustle of traditional clinical practice? Do you long for a deeper connection with the clients that you serve?
Hampton Roads Veterinary Hospice (HRVH) is a member of the Caring Pathways family of End-of-Life Care, AAHA-Accredited Veterinary Practices. Our supportive team enables veterinarians to deliver excellent end-of-life medical care while serving all involved with compassion. Our veterinarians appreciate focusing on the quality of heartfelt connections with families and their pets without being rushed. And our industry-leading training and one-on-one mentoring processes ensure new team members are supported to succeed and excel in their roles, including those with limited experience in providing veterinary hospice and palliative care and/or in-home euthanasia.
HRVH ensures veterinarians thrive in their roles and provides opportunities for growth into additional areas of the business including: management, training, research, community relations, and expansion team participation. There are opportunities for a variety of schedules including full-time (4 days/week), part-time (1-2 days a week), and a range of day/night/weekend shifts. Work-life balance, professional satisfaction, and strong teamwork are at the center of our culture. This position is ideal for doctors who like to work independently and create a weekly schedule that works for them, but also appreciate the backing of a highly trained client care and nursing team, along with veterinarian colleagues to support one another.
Compensation and benefits are dependent on the schedule desired, but our full-time doctors average $110,000-$130,000.
