University of Pennsylvania - New Bolton Center
Location: New Bolton, Pennsylvania
Type: Full Time
The Department of Clinical Studies-New Bolton Center at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine invites applications for a faculty position in the Academic Clinician track in Large Animal Medicine. The successful candidate will be a DVM/VMD or equivalent and will be Board-certified in the American or European Colleges of Veterinary Internal Medicine with demonstrated expertise in large animal medicine. Experience in both equine and farm animal internal medicine is essential. Advanced research training is not required.
New Bolton Center has a robust and diverse medicine caseload, with many sport horses and an increasing number of pet small ruminants. The medicine caseload is currently managed by 4 faculty members and 2 lecturers (all ACVIM diplomates), 7 medicine residents, and 6 rotating interns. Current clinical strengths and areas of research focus in medicine include equine neurology, equine endocrinology, laminitis, and neonatology. The medicine service at New Bolton Center is supported by an equine ophthalmologist (ACVO diplomate), farm animal specialist (ACVIM diplomate), cardiology and ultrasonography specialists (2 ACVIM diplomates), large animal radiologists (2 ACVR-LA diplomates), emergency and critical care specialists (3 ACVECC diplomates), and numerous clinicians in other specialty services. The medicine caseload consists of approximately 2000 cases per year, with approximately 70% horses and 30% farm animals (goats, cattle, sheep, camelids, and pigs).
The successful candidate will become part of a team of enthusiastic clinicians, house officers, students, and support staff that participate in the clinical activities of the Large Animal Medicine service. Responsibilities will include patient care, clinical teaching and supervision of veterinary students and house officers, and didactic and laboratory teaching of pre-clinical students. The Academic Clinician track at NBC does not carry an expectation for research, although participation in collaborative research projects is valued. Priority will be given to candidates with a proven record of teaching excellence and the ability to provide high quality patient care while fostering relationships with clients and referring veterinarians. Preference will be given to candidates whose clinical interests will complement or expand existing strengths at New Bolton Center. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. A generous benefits package including tuition support is provided.
