The CAHC is an accredited hospital offering advanced primary opinion, emergency and critical care, specialist referral care, and professional services for small companion and native animals. It provides a high-quality clinical training environment for final year veterinary students working under the close supervision of experienced veterinary surgeons, nurses and support staff.

The Emergency and Critical Care team works through a 24/7 roster to provide emergency and critical care services for a dynamic and growing caseload of small animal patients. You will join a team that enjoys strong support from a lively group of experienced academic clinicians and pathologists, plus well-trained, hard-working nurses, client services personnel and technical services staff.

By involving final year students in clinical case management, providing students with additional learning opportunities where possible, and by demonstrating the highest standards of professional behaviour, a CAHC clinician has the opportunity to make important contributions to the clinical education of the next generation of veterinarians.

If you are an enthusiastic, team-oriented veterinarian with a strong drive to deliver the highest standards of clinical service and care we would love to hear from you.  Ideally, you have experience in first opinion, emergency and critical care.  Your communication and interpersonal skills are excellent, and you are passionate about mentoring the next generation of veterinarians by imparting knowledge and modelling the highest standards of professional behaviour.

COLLINGWOOD, INNER NORTH EAST MELBOURNE - FULL OR PART TIME SPECIALIST IN RADIOLOGY New Position

Specialist in Veterinary Radiology

The Centre for Animal Referral and Emergency (CARE) is seeking a registered specialist in veterinary radiology to join our friendly team.

About CARE

CARE is a busy, well-equipped, privately-owned, multi-specialist veterinary hospital located in Collingwood, on the fringe of Melbourne’s inner-CBD. It maintains a strong emphasis on the standard of patient and client care and is distinguished by the cooperative and complimentary involvement of specialist emergency and critical care, surgery, internal medicine, neurology, and diagnostic imaging services.  The working environment is friendly and constructive, and the caseload moderated to allow emphasis on the quality, rather than the quantity, of patient care.

Existing diagnostic imaging facilities include digital radiography, Phillips Affinity 50G ultrasound, Siemens Somatom 16-slice CT and Phillips BV29 mobile C-arm fluoroscopy with digital subtraction angiography. Beyond this, there is a strong commitment to the continued expansion and advancement of on-site imaging facilities, with PACS system and digital radiography upgrades in process and future plans for high-field MRI installation.

The position

An opportunity exists for a specialist in diagnostic imaging who enjoys and values integration and positive interaction with specialists in other clinical fields with the intention of optimising patient management. This clinical exposure has the potential to be interesting and rewarding, and the direct involvement of the diagnostic imaging specialist in clinical problem solving is well established, welcomed, and well respected among existing staff of the hospital.

The position involves performing and providing reports for diagnostic ultrasound examinations, the ad hoc provision of diagnostic imaging advice and interpretation to facilitate case management within the hospital, responding to email enquiries from bona fide referring veterinarians for assessment of diagnostic images and, when possible, the provision of written reports for CT studies performed within the hospital.

Further to the clinical aspects of the role, the diagnostic imaging specialist is central in the provision of advice on the purchase and upgrade of diagnostic imaging equipment and the ongoing expansion of existing imaging services at CARE. Active involvement in the provision of staff continuing education and contribution to the maintenance of diagnostic imaging protocols would be expected.

The working hours of the position are flexible and negotiable, being either part or full time depending on the availability of the successful applicant, and do not typically involve after-hours work.  An attractive remuneration package would be negotiated, including four weeks’ annual leave and one week of study leave annually (full time pro-rata). Relocation assistance is available for successful interstate or international candidates.

How to apply

Applications, including letter of intent and CV, or any enquiries, should be directed to Ms Kelley Johnson at kjohnson@carevet.com.au
