A position for an associate veterinarian is available at our five doctor small animal practice.
Live and work in St. Augustine, Florida, near the beautiful old town and beaches. The hospital is architecturally distinct and is a very pleasant place to work. You will be welcomed and assisted by capable veterinary technicians and a professional support staff. SJVH offers full in-house laboratory diagnostic capabilities, color Doppler ultrasound, and complete anesthetic monitors. We also have digital radiology equipment for both dental and whole body radiology. Video endoscopy is an additional diagnostic capability. SJVH is an AAFP certified cat friendly practice and offers a separate waiting room and exam room for our feline patients.
Our caseload is varied and interesting. It includes soft tissue surgery and intensive medicine cases. Doctor's rounds are scheduled on a weekly basis for case presentation and to review the recent literature. We work with several wildlife rehabilitation groups and see about 500 avian species and wild mammals each year. These range from bald eagles to otters, with lots of seagulls and an occasional sea turtle in between. If you have a special interest in wildlife medicine, this area will provide many rewards.
Successful candidates will show a commitment to quality care with a focus on building client relationships for life. Surgical experience is a plus but not required. SJVH requires a focus on quality and depth of medicine. We are a highly collaborative group, so team players are encouraged to apply. St. Johns believes in quality of life for our doctors and staff, and committed to providing scheduling, compensation and benefit packages that allow our staff to enjoy professional balance.
