February 27, 2018
Type & Experience Level:
Full Time - One to seven years
DVM or equivalent
We are looking for additional skilled, caring, and friendly Surgeons to join our team at our privately-owned hospital in Torrance, California.
We’re different. We don’t do corporate red tape. Instead, we do pumpkin carving contests, potlucks, staff support, and innovation in our medical care and management. We are here to support YOU! Does this sound like something you might like? Read on to learn about what we value.
Our surgery department is in a newly opened 24-hour Specialty Hospital which is well-staffed and equipped to handle a busy and varied caseload including a number of soft tissue, oncologic, and interventional procedures in addition to orthopedic cases. We encourage growth, innovation, and additional training (through in-house RACE approved continuing education courses as well as a competitive conference compensation package). Each specialist is given a full support team of assistants and technicians to ensure the success of their practice.
ACCESS - South Bay is currently comprised of emergency/critical care, cardiology, internal medicine, , neurology, oncology, radiology, and dermatology on site with many other specialties at our sister hospitals in Culver City and Woodland Hills. There are 6 surgeons at the other hospitals to help with cases. We are one of the only centers in the Western United States with a complete joint replacement center (Hip, Knee, Elbow). We have a 3D printer which is used to print out bones, perform virtual surgeries, as well as produce patient specific instrumentation and guides!! We practice in a rich and rewarding environment where patient care can be optimized and learning is continuous. This type of collaborative medicine is rare outside of a university setting.
To provide the best care possible, we stay apprised of new innovations, and utilize an extensive array of cutting-edge diagnostic, therapeutic, and monitoring equipment. These include a complete laboratory (CBC/Chemistry/Istat/Coagulation testing, SnapDx, VetTest), monitoring devices (Cardell Max 12/Telemetry/NIBP/ Invasive BP/telemetry), digital radiography, multiple ultrasound and echocardiogram units, OEC 9800 fluoroscopy with neuro vascular package, and 1.5T MRI. We have Pulmonetics critical care ventilators at each hospital. We are also equipped with complete endoscopic, laparoscopic, arthroscopic and thoracoscopic instrumentation. We are always willing to expand in different directions and explore new therapies.
An ideal candidate will exemplify our guiding principles of Quality, Integrity, Compassion, and Service. They will have strong communication skills, an energetic attitude, empathy, and enthusiasm for helping both clients and patients. They will be committed to furthering their education, thereby providing the most advanced care to their patients. Additionally, they will excel at collaborating with their co-workers, our referring veterinarians, and our clients.
Essential job functions will be provided during the selection process. We offer an excellent salary and benefits package and travel compensation for your interview will be provided by ACCESS.
Please send your CV attention to our Chief of Staff, Richard Mills, DVM, DACVECC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
