Open Veterinary Positions – Waltham

Angell West in Waltham, MA, outside historic Boston, is seeking applicants for various Staff Veterinarian positions. Take a look inside Angell below.

 

Current Open Veterinary Positions


Staff Veterinarian- Cardiologist

The Position

We are looking for a part time or full time cardiologist to join Angell West. Our previous cardiology service operated at capacity, with a significant wait time for appointments, since opening.  We expect that a new cardiologist joining our practice will quickly build a caseload.

This position provides a unique opportunity to join a well-known and respected practice at a non-corporate, non-profit, referral hospital.  Our veterinarians are able to practice in an intimate client-focused setting, but with numerous amenities from the larger Angell Boston hospital as support. This would be an ideal position for an individual who is seeking a smaller hospital-based setting with a busy clinical cardiology practice. The caseload will be generated through appointments, in-house referral, the emergency service, and referrals from our community practices.

The Equipment

Cardiology equipment includes a Philips Affiniti echo unit, Dextronix electronic VET-ECG system, in-house telemetric monitoring, ambulatory ECG systems (holter and event monitoring), petMAP and Doppler blood pressure systems, and a portable GE Vivid i echo unit.

Angell Boston has a fully equipped cardiac catheterization lab including c-arm fluoroscopy with power injection for angiography. The cardiology service at Angell West has the opportunity to take cases to Boston for cardiac catheterization and pacemaker implantation (with the assistance of the Boston team).

Requirements

Qualified applicants must have a DVM or equivalent and have board certification. Board eligible candidates or those having completed a residency will be considered. We are looking for applicants who demonstrate aptitude for multi-tasking and work successfully in a team environment. The successful candidate should be able to communicate effectively, both in writing and verbally, to the veterinary and technical staff as well as clients and referring veterinarians.

Staff Veterinarian- Urgent Care

The Position

This is a newly created position at our growing Angell West practice! Our urgent care service has been open since the summer of 2021 and has been functioning at capacity, with demand beyond what we can provide.  We are looking to expand the urgent care service to additional days and times.  The urgent care service sees scheduled appointments and manages the majority of them with outpatient treatment.  Our staff and facilities allow for consultation with specialists, advanced workup of cases, professional growth, and ongoing learning opportunities with support and mentoring.  Surgical practice can be incorporated into the position if desired by the applicant.

Requirements

We are seeking applicants that are veterinarians (DVM or equivalent) and have completed a rotating internship or have been working in general practice for 3 years or more. We encourage applicants that have recently finished a rotating internship to apply, as we can provide mentorship, support, and ongoing growth and learning opportunities.

Candidates must demonstrate aptitude for multi-tasking and working successfully in a team environment. The successful candidate should be able to communicate effectively, both in writing and verbally, to the veterinary and technical staff as well as clients and referring veterinarians.

Our emergency veterinarians work closely with our specialists, encouraging continued professional growth. The qualified individual will be responsible for managing inpatients and overseeing the CCU, receiving patients through our emergency list, and participating in mentorship and training of our interns.
