Country Club Animal Clinic hopes to add team members in the following positions:
Country Club Animal Clinic is ready to add a second full time doctor! The ideal applicant will be enthusiastic and personable, have 2-5 years of experience, and is looking for a permanent home. Internship or emergency clinic experience considered a strong plus. We encourage a strong interest in one or more focus, such as dentistry, pain management, home hospice, nutrition, behavior, etc. But it’s also imperative that you can manage those cases that form the foundation of small animal practice: dermatology, dentistry, gastroenterology, urology, senior care, endocrinology and wellness care. Desire to pursue certification in ABVP or advanced skills will be encouraged and supported.
Must have strong computer and technical skills and a burning desire to continue learning and to be a guiding force in our profession. We are still “high touch” as much as “high tech,” so it’s essential that you can perform an excellent history and physical exam, and people skills to help guide the pet owner through all life stages of their beloved dog or cat. You must balance the needs of the patient, the client, and the practice.
We offer a competitive pro-sal package based on experience, skills and schedule. 3-5 days/week (flexible), with the option of expanding business hours in the near future. 2-3 Saturdays/ month required. VIN membership is automatic, along with unlimited VIN CE (including all classes offered), one major conference annually and various local and regional meetings are encouraged, with the possibility of more targeted advanced training programs (acupuncture, ultrasound, etc) open to the productive candidate.
Palm Desert is part of the Coachella Valley, an inland Southern California winter resort area within 100 miles of downtown LA, San Diego, various mountain communities, the Colorado River, and much more. There are unlimited cultural, social, and recreational activities either locally or a day trip away. We have a local airport (Palm Springs International) that connects to just about anywhere in the world. The area has excellent schools, museums, a great community college and the newest California State 4-year university. Our veterinary community is diverse and cooperative, and we are home to numerous service organizations and a world-class Chamber of Commerce. In short, the area offers all the combined benefits of a big city and a small town, but without the traffic or the isolation!
2-3 days minimum (paid) working interview required before hiring; travel expenses will be covered if needed. Signing/ moving bonus possible. Please send resume, references, professional goals and possible dates for a working interview to Email Us.
RVT/ VETERINARY TECHNICIAN
Are you a Registered Veterinary Technician, or eligible to become licensed in the near future? Are you eager to ply your skills where they will be genuinely appreciated? Did you put the “tech” in “veterinary technician?” If so, we want YOU!
We’re looking for at least one RVT to join our team on a long-term basis. The ideal candidate will have an insatiable desire to further their skills in the field by learning new skills and constantly developing their knowledge. Training in ultrasound scanning, anesthesia, and Avimark are considered a real bonus.
This person will have strong computer skills and an aptitude for all things tech, but still enjoys connecting with clients, and never loses sight of the pet patient’s well being. You will be expected to have an excellent grasp of animal anatomy, and ready to take your skills in veterinary dentistry and imaging to the next level. We have a separate cleaning staff to free you up to do what you’re trained for.
Ongoing continuing education is expected, and occasional travel may be required. Please send resume, references, salary expectations, and one or two dates you will be available for a working interview to Email Us.
