Surgical Specialist

North Shore Veterinary Specialist Centre, Artarmon, Australia

Location – Sydney Australia:

Sydney is a city that arguably offers the best balance of environment and cultural delights, and it has a wonderful climate. With some stunning beaches and sea pools, plus surrounding bushland, it’s heaven on earth for outdoor types.

Culture is also well catered for, where venues including the globally renowned Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Theatre Company and the Art Gallery of NSW offer a huge choice of entertainment. The city’s many multicultural and arts festivals and open-air events complement these established institutions.

Then, of course, there’s the food. Sydney dwellers can enjoy a different cuisine every night. From feasting in Chinatown to fabulous Italian eateries, modern Australian cuisine and everything in between.

About us:

North Shore Veterinary Specialist Centre was established in 2001 and is co-located with North Shore Veterinary Hospital. NSVH was started in 1935 and is the oldest veterinary hospital on the North Shore of Sydney. We are a 24/7, 365 day a year facility with specialists in surgery, emergency & critical care, internal medicine, diagnostic imaging, ophthalmology, dermatology, a bustling emergency department and a progressive general practice.

In early 2019 we moved to a brand new state-of-the-art facility, offering four custom designed theatres, one of which is dedicated to orthopaedic surgery and another to soft tissue surgery. We can perform fluoroscopic studies either in our theatres or within our radiology suite. We have full in-house laboratory facilities, comprehensive diagnostic imaging including two ultrasound rooms, digital X-ray, a 128 Slice GE CT scanner, and an MRI being installed later this year.

Our surgical team work closely with our ECC, internal medicine and imaging services to ensure the best quality of care is provided to our patients. We also offer a veterinary rehabilitation service as an adjunct to the surgical service, providing optimal patient care from start to finish.

The Opportunity:

We are seeking expressions of interest from a surgeon who wants to be a part of our team. You will be working closely with two experienced specialist surgeons, both of whom have been with us long term. We also have two surgical interns, and a team of specialist trained surgical nurses who have many years of experience in anaesthesia nursing, as surgical assistants and radiology nurses, and providing a very high standard of in-patient care.

In this role, you will provide a specialist referral surgical service to our referring clinics from across Sydney and NSW. We aim for clinical excellence within a working environment that promotes and encourages collegiality and communication. While this is a permanent opportunity for employment, we are open to conversations about short or long-term contracts.

About you:

To be successful in this role, it is important that you are a qualified small animal specialist surgeon, having achieved diplomate or equivalent status (ACVS / ECVS / FANZCVS), and that your qualification will be eligible for Specialist Registration with the Australian Veterinary Board Council. You are welcome to email us for more information about this, or you can refer directly to the guidelines of the Veterinary Practitioners Board of NSW. Applications from residency trained candidates will also be considered.

Above all, we value someone who is a team player, committed to our clients, patients and referring veterinary clinics, and is keen to be a part of our specialist team.

The Benefits:

You will be rewarded with a generous salary & benefits that are reflective of the experience you bring to the position. We will support you with visa application and Australian Veterinary Registration, and provide you with tailored relocation support to suit your situation.

Applications and further information can be sought from Melissa Bicanic on 0431 186 825 or at melissa.bicanic@vet.partners
