Emergency Veterinarian – Moorabbin
- “When you hear medical hoof beats do you think horses first, but get a secret thrill when you find a zebra?
- Are you secretly (or not so secretly) a little bit of an adrenaline junky? Would you like to learn to orchestrate a successful CPR, perform a gastropexy and off handedly comment to your friends about the dog who’s heart you tapped last night as if it’s all in a days work because it is?
- Would you like to work with educated and experienced nurses with advanced diplomas who are capable of becoming your extra right hand?
AEC Moorabbin is busier than ever and an exciting new position has opened up for a permanent full-time Emergency Veterinarian. An attractive salary package including five weeks annual leave, one week CE leave, financial CE support, access to Plumbs on line & a VIN membership will be offered to the right candidate and although the position is for a full time employee, for the right person part time hours may be negotiable. We have a strong focus on mental health, work – life balance and team culture.
We have all the machines that go PING including; digital radiographs, in house bloods (CBC, biochemistry, blood gases, PT/APTT), a MyLAB30 gold ultrasound and a VIVID3 cardiac ultrasound, 3 ventilators (a Puritan Bennet and 2 iVent life support) humidicribs, an oxygen generator, a spacious surgery, a defibrillator and both Surgivet and DASH cage side monitors.
Our patients are frequently insured and owners are willing to pursue the gold standard of treatment. We have an extensive library of protocols to support you, however critical & lateral thinking and treating each case individually is highly encouraged. We have visiting cardiologists, internal medicine ultra sonographers and a close relationship with both ECC, surgical and internal medicine specialists.
You will be encouraged to develop an interest in ultrasound, trauma, toxicology and surgery. Practical and theoretical education is strongly encouraged through in house tutorials, webinars, mentoring programs memberships and fellowships.
If you would like to work in a large emergency centre, with a low staff turn-over AEC Moorabbin might be the right fit for you!
Applicants should have a minimum of 2yrs veterinary experience and while emergency experience/willingness to obtain memberships is desired, we will provide training and mentorship for the right fit.
