The Animal Diagnostic Clinic , a leading Dallas VCA specialty practice serving the North Texas and Dallas metroplex areas, is seeking to a board -certified or residency/fellowship-trained Surgical Oncologist or Soft Tissue Surgeon to join our talented team.

As a VCA hospital, ADC is part of the nation's largest and most experienced network of veterinary specialty medicine hospitals. ADC is a leader in the fields of Small Animal Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Critical Care, and Medical and Radiation Oncology in North Texas and it is time to expand our specialty offerings to surgery. ADC is the oldest and most established internal medicine practice in the DFW Metroplex. We are known for our collaborative culture, strong sense of teamwork, and emphasis on communication and inclusion of our referring primary care veterinarians.

ADC currently employees 5 boarded veterinary oncologists with a cancer specific surgical caseload that generally exceeds 300 cases/year. This does not include additional soft tissue surgeries from our ECC, IM and Cardiology departments. This is one of the rare opportunities to have a complete surgical caseload based solely on in-house referrals.

Our success has led to growth that requires a new facility. We have purchased and are currently in the beginning architecture phase of a large state of the art 23,000 sq ft facility located within walking distance to the original ADC. Completion is scheduled for the beginning of 2025. This is your opportunity to help influence and design a surgical department the way you want it. Complete with equipment needs. The anticipated growth of the future surgical department will include equipment needed for orthopedic case management as well.

The Animal Diagnostic Clinic is proud to be one of a select few private practices' sites for Varian True Beam Radiation Therapy with Rapid Arc capabilities making it a destination site for owners wanting access to advanced radiation therapy (SRT,IMRT, IGRT, and VMAT) for their pets. This technology is utilized frequently for both pre and post-operative patients. We also offer conventional and advanced chemotherapy, electrochemotherapy and ongoing participation in national clinical trials in both oncology and internal medicine.

Our team operates with an elevated sense of professionalism and collaboration to create an atmosphere of support for one another. We also have a profound sense of responsibility and compassion for both our primary care colleagues and our shared patients. We place high value in quality of life outside of the hospital setting. We are looking for a Neurology candidate that shares these qualities and who desires to blend their clinical skills with a culture of caring responsibility.

The Dallas/Ft Worth metroplex is the nation's 4th most populous metropolitan area and The Animal Diagnostic Clinic enjoys a generous caseload in terms of volume (annually exceeding over 1500 new cases/year) variety, scope, and complexity. ​The long standing caseload provides an excellent opportunity for both new and seasoned internists alike. The city of Dallas is considered a gem of the southwest United States with many area attractions including multiple professional sports teams, the Downtown Arts District, and numerous opportunities for outdoor activities at our many large lakes and nearby state parks. Of course, being the heart of the Southwest, Dallas embraces its heritage: Barbecue, Tex-Mex cuisine, and cowboy history is evident wherever you go. These aspects enhance a modern-day cultural hub and lend a distinctive feel and flavor to life here in the DFW area. Our city is comprised of all walks of life, lifestyles, and cultural identities. Whatever your passions may be, you are certain to find the opportunity to explore them to the fullest.
