To quote a current emergency doctor “In comparison to previous experiences, this place is like a warm family hug!” 

The Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center (VREC) is currently seeking additional Internist(s) to join our great family and well established Internal Medicine service; new graduates strongly encouraged to apply.  An ideal candidate is a motivated, good humored, compassionate clinician with excellent communication skills, and the desire to practice advanced medicine. 

Veterinarians should neither feel they need to be a superhero, nor a complete failure.  We provide our doctors a steady and secure schedule and environment so you do what is important, meaningful, and allows you to take care of yourself too!  

As an example of our diligence and care, we have remained functioning during COVID and elected to close the doors to our emergency service when needed, as opposed to overextending our staff.  As a collective we care for one another as colleagues and family, and the community knows we intend to participate in a marathon, not a sprint - we are an established and well-known facility with wonderful referring veterinary and community support.  

We are hiring those who view their career as more than just a "job".  We believe in work flexibility and understand that life happens, change is everywhere, and it is important to always grow as a whole.  You will be a part of a diverse team that is more like a family and works as one cohesive unit to ensure a better life for all staff, patients, and clients.  We are a hospital who wants individuals to be themselves, and allow them to do their best every day!  We have staff who have been with us since the hospital opening, and some who came to work with us because of previous work experiences together - this says a lot about us as a family and team!  Call and talk to any staff member about what it's like to be part of VREC!

We currently want to hire additional Internists to create a well-rounded team, allowing for an even more enhanced quality life, balanced with high compensation.  Yes, the more the merrier, because every staff member is family and an integral part of the team! 

While there is an immense amount we can't list, we would be more than pleased to discuss our culture, philosophy and position.
