Job Description: VCA Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center
, one of the largest private specialty referral practices in Northern California,
is seeking a board certified or residency trained Oncologist
to join our amazing team.
VCA SVRC opened in 2007 in a newly built, custom-designed 23,000 square foot building. In 2012 the hospital grew by 4,000 square feet with the addition of a linear accelerator vault. The facility includes 15 exam rooms, 6 surgical suites with an additional ER surgical room, a 64 slice Toshiba CT with automatic injector and a 1.5 Tesla MRI. The hospital is equipped with complete endoscopic, laparoscopic and thorascopic instrumentation, multiple ultrasounds including a color flow Doppler, O2 cages, two digital radiology suites and a C-arm. In addition to the complete in-house lab which includes Abaxis CBC, PT/PTT and chemistry machines, Heska EPOC, I-stat and a colloid osmometer. An Antech lab is within a 10 minute driving distance.
VCA SVRC has a full complement of experienced, well trained and compassionate staff including over 20 full time RVTs and over 25 experienced Technician Assistants. A new oncologist will have access to an existing referral base committed to these services. The successful candidate will participate in community outreach in a supportive structure but this is not a situation where the service needs to be built from scratch. With over 450 hospitals that actively refer and cases continuously coming through the door, building a loyal following will not pose a problem for the right candidate.
The hospital has boarded specialists in the following disciplines: Internal Medicine, Radiology, Surgery, Neurology, Cardiology, Medical & Radiation Oncology, and Emergency/Critical Care. Sit down rounds are conducted every morning with all the doctors to discuss hospitalized cases with our intern class as a learning opportunity. This type of collaborative medicine is somewhat rare outside of a university setting and makes for a rich and rewarding environment. It optimizes patient care while ensuring continuous learning. Since opening in 2007, VCA SVRC has had a strong internship program with many advancing to residencies. Teaching, mentoring and participating in the interns' professional development would be expected from any candidate.
Sacramento is a wonderful city with lots of options based on lifestyle. It has an ideal year round climate with incredible outdoor opportunities including hiking, mountain biking, water sports, skiing, wine tasting, and camping. It is only an hour and a half drive from San Francisco, Lake Tahoe or Napa Valley with all their accompanying activities. It is also a large metropolitan city with a small town feel.

How many places in the world can you have access to both the beach and mountains in less than a 2-hour drive? VCA SVRC is a great place to work with incredible people and in a city with a very high quality of life.
