Appelbaum Animal Clinic, a family-owned, rapidly growing small animal clinic in the heart of Tulsa, OK, is seeking a full time associate veterinarian to be part of our team and grow with us.
Qualifications include not only the ability to practice high quality veterinary medicine and care for dogs and cats, but to care for clients as well. Any level of experience will be considered, including new and recent graduates. Qualified candidates should have a good grasp on the management of a wide variety of medical and surgical patients, including preventive care and complex internal medicine cases. Basic surgical and dentistry skills, but no orthopedic surgical experience is required. Ultrasound experience will be strongly considered, as we intend to add this service to our clinic.
Mentorship comes easily to our doctor, and he is willing to learn new things as well. We don't expect a new or recent graduate to be highly skilled in every aspect of veterinary medicine, and we feel that a doctor who is open and receptive to learning will be the most professionally successful and satisfied.
Professional growth will be encouraged, as we are always looking to expand our services.
An interest in exotic medicine will be considered. We have full in-house lab, DR digital radiology, full anesthetic monitoring (oximetry, ECG, etc), and therapy laser, and are looking to add ultrasound and dental radiology very soon. We treat a wide variety of patients, from well patient preventive medicine (vaccine/parasite control) to complicated internal medicine, dermatologic, and surgical cases (routine spay/neuter, soft tissue, dentistry, and some orthopedic surgery). We treat most of our patients in-house, but also have a great working relationship with the referral/ER centers in Tulsa and at Oklahoma State University College of Vet Med for the most complicated cases.
4-day work week, with rotating Saturdays (8-noon). New or recent graduates will not be expected to practice alone on a Saturday until they are comfortable with it.
Excellent base salary/commission and benefits package, commensurate with experience and regionally competitive, which includes but is not limited to health insurance, dental/vision, and paid CE, among other things. Our support staff has years of experience in patient care and management, and we lean on them heavily to make the doctor workload more manageable. And, as an added bonus, we all enjoy working with each other; our staff actually like coming to work.
For the right associate, there will be opportunity for buy-in, bonuses, and/or profit-sharing.
We strive to attain a healthy work/life balance, and we understand that family/personal time is very important. Our work ethic is to get clients and patients cared for, but to enjoy what we do while we do it.
Yes, we are in the smack middle of the country, but...Tulsa is a great place to live and raise a family, if that is your desire. Tulsa is the second largest city in Oklahoma, and is approximately 110 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. We don't have any oceans immediately nearby (so we have no hurricanes), but we have tons of other things to pique a wide variety of interests. Too many lakes to count with hundreds of miles of hiking trails and plentiful outdoor activities, native American culture and history, museums, a great local music scene, and a variety of sports (college and professional) can be found within our region. The NBA is 100 miles to our southwest (OKC), and multiple pro sports are a short beautiful 3 hour drive north (KC), or south (Dallas). Tulsa is a large city with a small town feel, and very family friendly. We also have an airport that is EASY in and out, and beaches are a short 2-3 hour flight away (and Southwest flies here).
If you have a great sense of humor and can enjoy working with a wide variety of clients, provide compassionate care for patients, and work with a staff who wants to work with you, we want to hear from you. Come grow, and help us grow. We are truly a family oriented clinic. Additionally, we understand the need for privacy, and that many doctors are searching for new positions quietly, so any communications will be held strictly confidential.
