We are seeking a full time associate veterinarian for our emergency care/urgent care hospital near Colorado Springs on the north side of the city in Monument, CO. This clinic is a satellite clinic to our well established and respected Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty hospital. Monument Pet Emergency is an urgent care clinic; our planned hours are Monday through Friday 4pm-12am and Saturday and Sunday 24 hours. We are looking for a candidate interested in working the weekend overnight shifts (8pm-8am). Appropriate, above competition compensation is offered for working both Saturday and Sunday overnight shifts. This is a brand new clinic that will be opening this summer (2019). We are looking for a confident, easy going, ambitious candidate who enjoys working with clients and appreciates the importance of the client-doctor relationship. Previous ER experience is required for this overnight position. We offer a very desirable work schedule with abundant time off to facilitate a healthy work-life balance.
Colorado Springs is home to our very own "14-er" mountain, Pikes Peak; Garden of the Gods, US Olympic Training Center, Space Foundation Headquarters and Discovery Center, US Air Force Academy, and so many more special places making it a spectacular place to call home – not just vacation. In fact, US News ranked it as the #1 “Most Desired Places To Live.” Being on the front range puts us right at the door step of an outdoor mecca. Our view of Pikes Peak is breathtaking! A short thirty minute drive to Denver allows easy access to "big city life". Other easy access amenities include Manitou Springs, home of the famous Manitou Incline (for exercise junkies); abundant mountain biking and hiking trails, and easy access to world class skiing at Breckenridge Ski Resort as well as numerous smaller (and much less crowded) ski hills. Our scheduling is based on balance of life and work. This would be a full time position with a base salary and a very competitive monthly percentage bonus without negative calculations. Signing bonus for the right candidate and assistance with moving expenses are offered. If you have interest in working and living in one of the best places in the country, then please respond to this ad with your CV and a cover letter. For direct contact, please contact Dr. Jennifer Price: phone 719-314-8974 (cell); 719-473-0482 (work). Thank you for your interest.
