Bay Area Pet Hospital is a privately owned emergency hospital in Traverse City, MI. With the support of local referring clinics, we see emergency and critical care cases from across Northern Michigan.
The Traverse City area is a beautiful small city located on Grand Traverse Bay (part of Lake Michigan). We are considered a vacation town by much of the state and many of the locals see no reason to ever leave. It is home to Northern Michigan College, dozens of beaches, lakes, rivers, hiking trails and both downhill and Nordic skiing. It is a huge foodie town and boasts dozens of microbreweries, many of which can be reached by water via the “Paddle for Pints” route.
The full time emergency veterinarian position is scheduled 3-4 shifts per week. This position is responsible for monitoring of hospitalized inpatients and treating incoming emergencies, including emergency surgeries and procedures.
Benefits of working with us include a flexible schedule, colleagues that help each other both with cases and with shift swaps, and an outstandingly knowledgeable and technically skilled support staff that makes coming to work fun. We also offer a competitive salary, matching 401-k, generous CE allowance and PTO, tuition reimbursement, and encourage use of vacation time PTO. Employer paid health insurance, VIN membership, state licensing, professional liability and DEA license dues.
Requirements for this position include a knowledge and passion for emergency and critical care medicine, the ability to communicate clearly and compassionately with our clients, and the ability to delegate tasks to your support staff. As this position overlaps with our other daytime and overnight positions, it would be ideal for an emergency loving new graduate looking to gain experience and confidence with emergency procedures and surgery.
