SINGAPORE - SMALL ANIMALS New Graduates welcome

Singapore - Small Animal Practice

The practice is seeking the services of a doctor with practical knowledge and skills. What’s needed is someone able to look after the Patients well, and provide a good service to the Clients. The medical standard offered to Clients is high, and less expensive alternatives are provided as options.

Support includes an experienced Team (so flexibility is important), and modern facilities and a high level of equipment.

From the doctors’ viewpoint, if you are able to operate with at least a little independence, the practice provides a fantastic opportunity to develop skills, being equipped well for imaging in radiology, ultrasound, and endoscopy; surgery in soft tissue and orthopaedics; dermatology; ophthalmology; and TCVM; and supports and encourages high level internal medicine. Additionally, it supports continuing education in whatever relevant field you choose, with flexible leave and financial support packages and equipment purchasing. You can potentially grow faster here than at a large referral practice. You do not need to be an expert to begin.

Remuneration is better than competitive, and Singapore is similar in many ways to London or Sydney – a big, fast, air-conditioned, well fed, english-speaking city.

If you believe you may be a candidate and are interested in our position, please contact us ( / +65 91465265) and we’ll help you decide.

About Us:

Long term Vets wanted.

 We have realized that we really need to have long term Vet volunteers.  

We are looking for a vet (and spouse if you have) who would appreciate the opportunity to take a sabbatical period, 6, 9 even 12 months off.  

Someone who is looking to sink deep into Thai culture, food, language, and island life.  And who is give back to a population that up until recently had no choice for the care of their animals.

Koh Mak is an incredible place to live that has so much to offer on many different levels.

So to that end we are building a small studio bungalow just across the yard from the clinic.

This self contained "doctor's studio" will have a private bath, small kitchenette, closet, work area, dinette table and front terrace, and designed to give privacy and space for the occupants.

Here is a short movie that shows what we do and who we are looking for.

And here is the full 11 minute film:
