Surgeon - North Shore Veterinary Hospital
Location – Sydney Australia:
Last year The Economist’s annual liveability index saw Sydney reaching its highest ever ranking. It’s now ranked as the world’s third most liveable city. This came as no surprise to us; we know Sydney as an amazing place to live and work! 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.
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, internal medicine, diagnostic imaging, ophthalmology, dermatology, a bustling emergency department, and progressive general practice and exotics service.
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 we are planning for an MRI installation in 2020.
Our surgical team work closely with our 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, boosting the client experience and providing optimal patient care from start to finish.
We are seeking expressions of interest from a surgeon who is looking for an Australian adventure and wants to be a part of our team. You will be working closely with two experienced specialist surgeons, both of who have been with us for several years. 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, while 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.
To be successful in this role, it is important that you are a qualified small animal specialist surgeon, having achieved diplomate 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.
Above all, however, 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.
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, Australian Veterinary Registration and provide you with tailored relocation support to suit your situation.
