VCA Northview Animal Hospital Specialty Referral Center is seeking a board certified or residency trained Oncologist to complement our AAHA-accredited, multi-specialty referral and general medicine practice in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

We know that doctors are in demand, and therefore you have a wonderful opportunity to select the best hospital - and we would like you to see why VCA Northview is the one!

We offer the best of everything - including specialty, emergency care, and general practice. We are large enough to offer state of the art services such as CT, laparoscopy, ultrasound, endoscopy, bronchoscopy, therapeutic laser, and canine rehabilitation, yet still small enough to offer personalized care to both our patients and our referral community. Our well established specialties include Internal Medicine, Surgery, Avian & Exotics, Critical Care, and Integrative Medicine. The successful candidate will thrive in a supportive structure, as this service does not need to be built from scratch. In addition to the caseload our own busy general medicine practice would provide, we have many hospitals that actively refer to our other specialists, so building a loyal following will pose no problems for the right candidate.
