Country Valley Veterinary Clinic is a growing AAHA certified hospital not far from Albany, NY. We have a stable and friendly group of staff that excels at working as a team. We are proud to offer high quality medicine and surgery. In addition to digital X-rays (including dental), we have ultrasound (with color), Cardell monitors, tonopen, fluid pumps, in house lab options, etc. We are interested in being well equipped, keeping up with continuing education, and meeting the needs of our community. We are well staffed with five excellent and experienced licensed veterinary technicians, as well as great assistants and receptionists. We add staff members as needed to maintain quality of care. The ideal associate is a team player who appreciates the importance of the staff and other doctors, and wishes to work in a collaborative environment.
We are eager to employ and mentor a new graduate that is interested in working up cases with the support of experienced clinicians. We currently have three experienced clinicians who are all happy to help a new graduate make the transition from a university setting to a vibrant private practice. Our newest team member would be scheduled as the second (or occasionally third) doctor in the building, and would initially be scheduled 60 minutes for appointments to allow for a thorough work up and to help develop a relationship with clients and pets. Our surgical cases are cared for on an individual basis, and we would not expect a new graduate to be alone in surgery until they are competent and comfortable. Daily rounds are part of helping any new graduate learn how to manage cases of all types. Although we are within driving distance of Albany, our country setting exposes the hospital to a great variety of routine, sick, and emergency cases, and our engaged clientele is interested in working cases up thoroughly at our hospital.
Although we take our veterinary responsibilities seriously, the team members at CVVC all enjoy life outside of work. A standard fulltime schedule for a new graduate consists of an alternating 4 day and 5 day work week. Because we allow catch up time and a long lunch break in the daily schedule, we expect to leave as scheduled at least 90% of the time, as well as have a proper lunch each day. We do no on call or after hour work, instead utilizing the excellent area emergency and referral facilities.
In addition to a generous salary, we offer up to 9 paid Holidays, 2 weeks of vacation the first year (increased to 3 weeks the second year), 3 additional personal days annually, a $2000 ce allowance, and all standard dues paid. Our more experienced clinicians enjoy a guaranteed base with annual pro-sal.
At Country Valley Veterinary Clinic, we take the health and happiness of our patients, our clients, and our staff to heart. We truly strive to have a cohesive and harmonious environment, and we are looking for the right new associate to further improve our hospital as a whole.
Please send a CV and letter of intent, attention Crystal C. Murray, DVM, to either the provided email address, or to the physical address of the hospital. We hope to hear from you soon!
