VetnCare offers an innovative 12-month graduate program for veterinary graduates. Participants emerge from our program as capable, confident Associate Veterinarians!
VetnCare is a collective of AAHA-accredited, independent veterinary hospitals in Northern California. All of our hospitals are veterinary-owned and veterinary-led, which enables us to provide the highest standard of patient care. We place a strong emphasis on continuing education, including developing clinical capability to perform advanced procedures. Our hospitals offer state-of-the-art equipment including digital X-ray, digital dental X-ray, comprehensive in-house lab equipment, and ultrasonography equipment.
We do things a bit differently:
We’re veterinary-led. Our business goal is to provide the highest standard of patient care. We offer our clients comprehensive solutions that are best for their pets. We sustain a strong reputation in our local communities by providing top-level care for our patients, and business results flow from there.
We do more interesting work in-house (and refer less). We believe in training our clinical teams in advanced procedures so that more can be done in-house. We believe in having state-of-the-art equipment including digital dental X-rays and ultrasounds in each of our practices. Not only does this mean our teams have greater job satisfaction through more interesting work, but our patients and clients also reap the benefits of having most things done under one roof.
We mentor our people. Our Clinical Directors spend at least one day per week purely training and mentoring their teams. From informal group demonstrations to more intensive one-on-one observation sessions, and advancement of their own skills under the leadership of our Clinical Coordinators, everyone who works here is continuously learning.
We are veterinarian-owned. We offer a pathway to partnership that enables our Veterinarians and technicians to have shares in their own practice. This enables our people to generate substantial wealth over time for themselves and their families. It means we’ve also been able to keep seven (and counting!) local practices in the hands of Veterinarians which may otherwise have been dissolved or sold to corporates.
We focus on what you do best. We do manage multiple hospitals. This enables us to achieve economies of scale when it comes to acquiring items like equipment and medication. It also lets us do stuff stand-alone practices can’t do (like fly in exotics specialists, dermatologists, and ophthalmologists for in-house wet labs). We provide management support in non-clinical areas (finance, HR, IT, etc). But we’re not at the whim of a Board, shareholders or a VC firm - providing the highest standard of patient care remains our bottom line.
We offer a competitive and progressive compensation and benefits package, including:
quality production bonus (20% of revenue and 10% of products)
annual continuing education credit and in-house CE events
substantial discounts on your own pets’ care and pet insurance
flexible paid time off
401k with 4% employer match
100% employer-paid medical, dental, vision and long-term disability insurance
flexible spending account, health savings account, and dependent care account
an entrepreneurial, collaborative culture that supports your personal growth and aspirations
To excel in our program, you'll need:
a veterinary degree
an interest in becoming a confident small animal general practitioner (interest in exotics and shelter work also preferred!)
California veterinary license or ability to get one
broad knowledge in medicine, surgery, imaging (including ultrasonography) and/or willingness to learn
advanced communication skills
exceptional bedside manner
Additional Salary Information: Plus quality production bonus
