In a world where COVID has disrupted the norm, a veterinarian is given the opportunity to join a team of Mavericks and emerge a Top Gun!
We are a well-established 6-doctor practice located in the charming Portage Park neighborhood that has been providing exceptional care to the furry inhabitants since 1975. We are looking for a hard-working and motivated associate veterinarian to join our highly-skilled and dedicated team. We are a pillar of the community with a loyal clientele and pride ourselves on being available to help that pet that just threw up on the white rug or get you in for those last-minute vaccines so that you can visit Aunt Trudy in Arkansas. This is a dynamic, growing practice where you will not be bored; even though we’re appointment-based, you never know what will walk through the door!
We stay abreast of the latest medical and tech advancements and take time to explain treatment protocols to our fur parents. This is not a Rabies-only, shot-and-pill kind of place. Our clients rave about the personal service and attention to detail. We are committed to thorough workups and maintain a collaborative atmosphere. Our clinic offers an exceptional mentoring environment perfect for new grads in addition opportunities for experienced veterinarians to further their skills. We encourage all employees to pursue areas of personal growth. No one is held back by pre-determined treatment protocols or performance quotas. Micro-managing is not our style, we let you be you!
Our facility is light and airy, we have the latest equipment and are willing to invest more if you have special skills. Nestled in the northwest side of Chicago, we’re easily accessible from the suburbs or anywhere in the city.
We offer a competitive benefits package:
• Competitive compensation
• Health, dental, vision, disability and life insurance available
• 401k with company match
• Generous CE allowance
• Flexible schedule with plenty of opportunity to take time off (If you want to see the cherry blossoms in Japan in spring or go to Disney World in the fall, this is the place for you!)
• No on-call/after-hours shifts
About Portage Park Animal Hospital
The veterinary profession isn’t like any other—it’s the only field predicated on the love of a patient who can’t tell you what’s hurting and can only look to you for help. It takes a special kind of person to do that job, or the jobs supporting that job. NVA doesn’t create those special people—we find them, cultivate them, and give them resources and opportunities to do what only they can do. Whether treating patients, managing a pet resort, or serving hospitals from NVA’s Support Center, NVA’s animal professionals are caring people, united by a love of animals. NVA is proud to honor that connection and is committed to serving our team members by providing them with the tools, support, and freedom to be the professionals they’ve always wanted to be.
