BluePearl Pet Hospital located in Paramus, NJ is seeking a collaborative, engaged, and passionate veterinary leader with several years of clinical experience to lead our team of emergency and specialty clinicians in the role of Medical Director. The Medical Director will partner in leadership with hospital administration to create a sense of community and interact globally with the hospital and all clinicians. Using excellent communication and interpersonal skills, the Medical Director will support veterinary partner relationships and enhance an engaging work environment for all by making a positive impact on the culture while cultivating an environment where medical quality stands out. We offer a competitive salary and relocation assistance.

The primary responsibilities of the Medical Director include upholding medical quality standards (patient care, client and referral veterinarian satisfaction, and patient safety), supporting quality and operational initiatives, fostering a clinician-driven culture and one that cultivates a learning environment, and clinician recruiting, engagement, and retention.

The ideal applicant needs to be self-motivated, collaborative, and able to work harmoniously and effectively with other clinicians, staff and referring veterinarians. We have an incredible collaborative relationship with our referring veterinarians, so the right candidate must be willing to interact in a variety of ways including making personal visits to their practices, presenting CE programs, and discussing cases by phone.

There is dedicated paid administrative time off the floor to allow for success in creating a positive impact.

We are truly in this together. We work to provide exceptional specialty and emergency care for pets by supporting each other through our shared passion, knowledge, and talents.

Our BluePearl Paramus hospital is a state-of-the-art facility that opened in September 2016. All of our specialists at this 19,000 square foot hospital focus on critical care, internal medicine, surgery, oncology, cardiology, emergency medicine and dentistry. Our current equipment includes a 64- slice CT scanner, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, ultrafiltration, laparoscope, thoracoscopy tower, endoscopy imaging system, prismaflex and phoenix machines. We also provide transesophageal echocardiography, dialysis, and blood banking.

Our hospital fosters a collaborative, team-oriented environment that works together to make a difference. The staff are like family and participates in team-building events throughout the year including Veterinary Technician Week, potluck meals, birthday celebrations, Associate of the Month recognition and in-house CE programs. Over 80% of our technicians are licensed and some will be sitting for the boards in the upcoming year.
