(Western Australian Veterinary Emergency & Specialty), Perth, Australia


WAVES (Western Australian Veterinary Emergency & Specialty) is currently seeking a qualified small animal surgeon (ECVS, ACVS, FANZCVS) or residency-trained surgeon to join and further promote our surgery group. Sadly, after 3 years, we are losing a surgeon who is moving back to Brisbane for family reasons, and we are left with an awfully big hole to fill!

This is a full-time position (although locum assistance is also sought), based on a 4-day working week. You would be working alongside an experienced board certified surgeon and will be supported in 2019 by both a surgical resident and an intern as well as our awesome nursing and administration staff. Like most surgeons, Aaron is sometimes grumpy, more often battered, generally opinionated…but always harmless .

Our hospital is only five years old and is constantly expanding. The facility boasts five fully fitted sterile operating theatres as well as an interventional suite. We have on-site 1.5T MRI, 16 slice CT, two C-arms, two digital radiography suites, endoscopic units etc. Surgical facilities include HD arthroscopic/laparoscopic towers, Valleylab electrosurgical units with ligasure capability, Synthes and Orthomed locking systems, Imex circular and linear fixation systems, Biomedtrix universal, micro and nano THR and intraoperative fluoro.

WAVES believes in a team orientated approach to patient care with close interaction between our other specialists in Anaesthesia, Emergency and Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Dermatology and Radiology. Our ECC clinic provides 24/7 support and care for our patients so that we can sleep well at night knowing that they are being well looked after.

Our hospital is located in Perth, on the west coast of Australia. Perth is an amazingly modern and beautiful city. The lifestyle is relaxed with beautiful beaches, the wonderful waterways of the Swan River, fantastic wineries and other getaways within a short drive of the city as well as a climate to envy. It is predicted that it will grow to be Australia’s third largest city by the end of the next decade. A 4-day working week provides a good work-life balance to enjoy all that Perth and Western Australia has to offer!

You must have a primary veterinary degree registrable in Australia and completion of examinations that would allow specialist registration in Australia is desirable. Just as importantly, you must have a personal drive for clinical excellence and be dedicated to providing awesome care for both your patients and your hospital team.

Joining WAVES will give you the opportunity to constantly grow and shine as a surgeon in a supportive environment. All enquiries should be directed to Aaron Moles at
