Careers at VETdispatch


Careers

Welcome! We are seeking great veterinarians in all states. Don’t let our current size and locations fool you-we are currently growing in Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., but looking for opportunities for expansion of our careers at VETDispatch into other states.

This isn’t your average veterinary business. Here, we have an organization where everyone is passionate about providing great medical care; not seeing one patient every 15 minutes on an assembly line. This is a place where having outside interests and a life make us better providers for our patients. This is where the lion’s share of the economic benefits goes to the real producers of value: our doctors.

VETdispatch is a new kind of organization inspired by a simple and novel idea: to be the first real alternative for the owner-associate system that has been so prevalent for so long. We realized that everyone wins when the doctors are given freedom and allowed to practice the best medicine as they see fit. Doctors win because they are liberated from the unnecessary overhead, pressures and management issues that are typically associated with animal hospitals. Clients win because they get the best possible healthcare in the most convenient and affordable form. And animals win because they treat the house call veterinarian as another houseguest, not as someone who appears threatening in an unfamiliar exam room.

We are building a team of experienced veterinarians and great staff. In essence, we are offering the doctors a chance to start their own practices in their local areas without the usual risks, administrative headaches and the large investments generally required to own a hospital. We advertise, maintain records, manage appointments, staff, inventory and other resources. Our doctors get to choose their own schedules and practice great medicine without intervention by a traditional practice owner.

Clients come to us to reduce their dependence on veterinary office visits and to form lasting relationships with great family veterinarians. Doctors come to us for a challenging, yet in many ways more satisfying practice rooted in the principle of self-determination.

Also, we must admit that we really hate paper! In addition to saving lots of trees, our approach to electronic communications and record keeping maximizes the efficiency of our doctors and staff in a mobile environment. If you can use a cell phone and a laptop, you will love our always-connected system.

We are without drama, fun to work with, generous and currently expanding. Come work with us.

How to Apply

Send your resume via e-mail to careers@vetdispatch.com. Please be sure to indicate the states in which you are licensed and anything else you think we should know in the body of the email.

Our evaluation process is similar to what you’re used to seeing at hospitals and other work environments. After reviewing your resume, we’ll typically follow up with an introductory call. If all goes well, we’ll invite you to an in-person interview. As a final step, we’ll perform some due diligence by following up with some of your references. All of this helps to make sure that you’re right for us and we’re right for you.
