VCA Family & Oahu Veterinary Specialty Center —one of our premier 24-hour Emergency, GP and Specialty practices, located on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu in Pearl City—is currently seeking a board certified or residency trained Oncologist to join our team. We have a busy and thriving hospital and are looking for the perfect candidate to help us continue delivering excellent veterinary services to the surrounding community. 

The hospital started off as a GP, then a 24-hour emergency practice, which has since grown into a well-respected specialty and referral center over the last few years. Our hospital includes 14 exam rooms, 3 surgical suites, separate dental suite and a designated ICU. There is also an ultrasound room and endoscopy suite. Today, we are a team of 19 doctors (including specialists in surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology and soon to be critical care), who pride ourselves on our collaborative approach to patient care. The hospital is equipped with a 64-slice CT scanner, digital radiography, endoscopic and laparoscopic/arthroscopic equipment, Logic 10 ultrasound machine for the internists, O2 cage, telemetry, C-arm, along with in-house lab equipment and plenty of multi-parameter monitors. The hospital is currently in the process of building a USP800 compliant work area for the oncology team.

With the creation of VCA’s Pet CancerCare Alliance™, you can be a part of a unique brain trust of over 65 veterinary oncologists and a network of over 35 Pet CancerCare Centers across North America. Our Medical, Radiation and Surgical Oncologists work together to bring advanced treatments, technology and education to all veterinarians by providing collaborative care, research, clinical trials and leadership to help ensure that pets are living their best possible lives.

You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful part of the country. Just minutes from Honolulu, Pearl City has easy access to secluded tropical beaches, snorkeling at the well-known Hanauma Bay, world-renowned golfing, deep-sea fishing, and stunning hiking and mountain biking. On Oahu, you are guaranteed unsurpassed beauty, tropical views and cultural infusion. The historic and cultural attractions are plentiful and unmatched by the other islands. 

This is a specialist’s dream job: an established reputable hospital with a strong, loyal referral base in a beautiful building with state-of-the-art equipment. It has multiple specialties, a 24-hour ER service, complimented by a large, dedicated and highly skilled technical support team. We provide a comprehensive benefits package, support in building and growing your service, and the stability that is inherent in a company like VCA. 

As a member of the VCA family, your love for medicine and compassion for pets and people is matched with a commitment to your professional growth. Eligible full-time employees will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package, including:
