Job Description:

VCA Encina Veterinary Medical Center is seeking a board certified or residency trained Oncologist to join our 12 doctor hybrid GP/Specialty/Emergency team in beautiful Walnut Creek, CA. Located just 30 minutes east of the San Francisco Bay, we are proud to be the veterinary referral center of choice in our community for nearly 200 local veterinarians.

Check out this video tour of VCA Encina:

Our oncology service will have all of the latest updated equipment and will be USP 800 compliant once our remodel is complete. Our RVTs are exceptionally well-trained with 15+ years of combined experience and with some focusing in oncology. With our 24-hour staffed facility, your patients will have supportive care available without the need to refer to an outside hospital. Located within the 9,000 sq. ft. hospital is a CT unit, scoping equipment and a dedicated ultrasound suite.

At VCA Encina Veterinary Medical Center, you will be supported by our experienced Hospital Manager and our Medical Director, a collaborative and collegial group of doctors (including a board-certified internist, oncologist, and surgeon), and additional support staff who assist and guide clients through their pet's medical journey. VCA Encina also has a thriving intern program that trains an average of 6 interns per year and provides opportunities to participate in VCA's Clinical Studies Program.

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.

The Walnut Creek region has an ideal year-round climate with numerous recreational options, including hiking, mountain biking, water sports, skiing, wine tasting, and camping. We are within a half day's travel to Lake Tahoe, Sonoma, or the Napa Valley. Walnut Creek is a large, metropolitan city with several surrounding bustling neighborhoods. There are many world-class restaurants, fun outdoor cafes, microbreweries and theaters to visit.
