About Us:

We are looking for a 4th surgeon (DACVS Surgeon or Residency Trained Surgeon) to join our amazing team!

Puget Sound Veterinary Specialists is a new specialty hospital in the heart of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We are a progressive and inclusive practice, started with the vision of breaking the mold of veterinary medicine that is rife with burnout and compassion fatigue. Our core values of Respect, Integrity, Compassion, and Humility with the over-arching “Do The Right Thing” are the backbone and framework of how we practice medicine, care for ourselves, each other, our patients and their families. We prioritize quality of life and work-life balance to give time to enjoy everything the beautiful PNW has to offer. We work hard while we are at work and believe in NO ONCALL or WEEKENDS!!!

Our technical and support staff are highly valued and cherished as critical members of the team, this is evident in our shared bonus structure that is provided to all support staff as the hospital grows. In addition to exemplary specialty and emergency medicine, we maintain a collaborative and collegial working environment that supports continued growth and learning in our hospital at all levels.

 

The Opportunity:

PSVS has a rare and exciting opportunity for you! Come and join an established surgical practice that has ALL the bells and whistles! We have an extremely well-trained anesthesia team with a lead nurse who has a VTS in anesthesia, surgical technicians and assistants who are extraordinary in appointments, and dedicated surgical scrub nurses to help you through any procedure necessary. You will also have the support of the existing specialties at PSVS, including internal medicine, ophthalmology, and dentistry neurology and critical care! A fully operational and well established 24-hour ER service, currently located in a separate facility, will be joining our team in our new building and will provide support and care for all post-operative patients.

Life is not just about work! We recognize that to be an excellent, satisfied clinician with longevity in this career, work-life balance is imperative. Work life balance is a founding principle of our hospital. Quality of life involves loving our jobs as well as pursuing our passions outside of work.

  • Help continue to develop and grow an incredible multispecialty and ECC hospital.
  • Generous above average salary-only or pro/sal position WITHOUT negative accrual.
  • Potential yearly bonus potential as the department and hospital grows and thrives.
  • A generous relocation bonus
  • 401K with employer match

  • A potential chance to give back with World Vets trips around the globe.

If your dream work/personal life involves loving your job as well as pursuing your passions outside of work, come join us and see what working with a truly supportive, engaged team is like!
