Equine Emergency Clinician Role - Seasonal

Due to our continued growth, Matamata Veterinary Services is seeking an enthusiastic equine veterinarian to help cater for our after-hours emergency and intensive care caseload. The position is ideally suited either to a surgeon or an internist who is comfortable working up routine surgical emergencies, including those who have completed their residency and are studying for Boards.

MVS is a large practice with a purpose-built equine referral hospital located in the heart of New Zealand Thoroughbred country. The majority of our caseload is Thoroughbred racing and breeding with a smaller sport/pleasure horse and Standardbred racing component. The annual hospital in-patient caseload exceeds 1400 horses per year. Emergency work consists of colics, dystocias, lacerations, and septic joints as well as a robust neonatal ICU caseload.

The hospital is fully equipped including surgical facilities, digital radiography, digital ultrasonography, nuclear scintigraphy, in house laboratory, gastroscopy and video-endoscopy. You will have the support of a team of 18 other veterinarians (including board-certified specialists in surgery, theriogenology and sports medicine), 4 interns and 12 nurses/support-staff.

Our practice culture is one of quality service to the client, dedicated care of the patient and teamwork. Achieving job satisfaction in combination with work-life balance is a key goal of our practice. This after-hours role will be shaped in collaboration with our interviewees in effort to attain that.

Applications (including CV and the names of 2 referees) are invited from veterinarians who are keen to join a progressive team.
