‘Associate’ means a co-worker, partner, ally and that is exactly what we are looking for. Sandbank Veterinary Hospital is a small animal practice located 30 minutes south of Hartford, CT. We are seeking a full- or part-time DVM to round out our three-doctor team. We are looking forward to mentoring and sharing our knowledge of general practice with a new graduate or a seasoned veterinarian.
In addition to digital radiographs and dental radiography, we also have access to a boarded radiologist and surgeon. We are open during the week from 8am to 6pm with half days on Saturdays from 8am to 12pm. Our new veterinarian would ideally have a four-day work week with alternating Saturdays. The ideal candidate would also be friendly, compassionate, and motivated to care for pets and people. A good sense of humor with a high level of professionalism would be optimal. Good communication skills are important and surgical skills are a plus, but the freedom to pursue your niche in veterinary medicine is encouraged. New graduates are welcome to apply and will be considered.
