The position

The Small Animal Teaching Hospital of VetAgro Sup is seeking a part-time or full-time clinician in companion animal internal medicine to join the existing Small Animal Internal Medicine Service.  Professional rank and salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience.
