We’re searching for a doctor who enjoys surgery (GP, urgent care, and/or specialty) and would find fulfillment elevating the services we provide our clients. This summer, we’re welcoming our new Medical Director, who also enjoys surgery and will be a great colleague for mentorship, collaboration, and thought partnership.
This is a full-time role, comprised of four-day work weeks. We currently have 1-doctor and 2-doctor surgery days and see urgent cases and appointments as needed. Our doctors primarily work from 8am-5pm and are provided flexible scheduling + ample PTO so they can truly vacation and have time to enjoy life outside of work. We also have established long-term relationships with relief doctors in the area, so our DVM team can vacation with confidence, knowing their clients and patients are being consulted by a familiar face. We’re also happy to accommodate NO on-call or after-hour emergency responsibilities in this role.
Desired skillset and experience:
Confident small animal doctor with at least 3 years of clinical and surgical experience
Veterinarian who has excellent communication skills (with clients, colleagues, and staff)
Practitioner who is growth-focused and determined to continually expand their medical knowledge/skillset
DVM who is laser focused yet adaptable in urgent care situations
Doctor who leads with compassion and finds fulfillment encouraging others to reach their goals
Additional benefits include:
Generous six-figure base plus quarterly production (no negative accrual)
Exciting bonus program / relocation assistance
NO weekend, on-call, or after-hour emergencies
120 hours of PTO (with rollover)
AVMA PLIT coverage
Professional development assistance
$2,500 annual CE allowance
Paid licensing fees and membership dues
Medical, dental, and vision for you and your dependents (with HSA option)
Collaboration with a talented Medical Advisory Board
Medical freedom to practice skills you’re proficient in or explore areas you’d like to learn
Dental mentorship with hands-on training and development with a boarded medical advisor
Investment in your personal interests (charity donation, gym membership, National Park pass, etc.)
Get to know our practice:
Our full-service hospital provides quality veterinary care for small animals Monday-Friday. Lower Columbia is well-equipped with digital radiology, a hand-held digital dental x-ray, in-house lab, a large dental suite, butterfly ultrasound, a new therapy laser, and a fully equipped surgical suite, just to name a few. Our small, yet mighty team is comprised of 2 technicians, 1 receptionist, 3 experienced assistants, and a proactive hospital manager. Our culture is collaborative, open, and transparent, and our goal is to provide the gold-standard of care. We encourage communication, celebrate each other’s successes, and take active measures to develop each team members’ hard and soft skills. We’re currently working toward our AAHA accreditation and are one of the few practices that see same-day urgent cases in the area. We exclusively treat small animals (mainly large dogs and barn cats) and are lucky to have a client base that is dedicated to their pets and has excellent compliance.
Longview is ideally situated between Seattle, WA, and Portland, OR, offering residents a rural lifestyle with year-round opportunities for outdoor recreation. From fishing in Glenoma to exploring lava tubes and Mount Rainier National Park, there's no shortage of things to do in Southwest Washington. Longview is also less than an hour away from beautiful lakes and only an hour and a half away from epic hiking and camping adventures.
Located in the shadow of Mount St. Helens volcano, Longview residents and visitors are entertained at one of the many parks, museums, and natural wonders in the area. Test your skills at the Mint Valley Golf Course, run through the trails of Lake Sacajawea Park, stroll through the local farmer’s market, or find your new favorite meal at one of Longview's incredible restaurants. Longview may be small, but it’s the kind of place where there’s always something going on, community members lend a helping hand, and even the squirrels are cared for (courtesy of 8 squirrel bridges and the annual Squirrel Fest).
