MAKE A DIFFERENCE
ASPCA Community Medicine provides access to high quality spay/neuter and primary veterinary care via our mobile clinics right in the communities that need it most. By providing accessible and fully subsidized medical care, Community Medicine Veterinarians play a crucial role in keeping pets where they belong: safe at home with the person who loves them. Community Medicine provides fully subsidized preventive and primary medical services to NYCs most underserved communities with little to no access to veterinary clinics or other essential pet resources, and also to animals in the care of NYC animal welfare organizations. Community Medicine is a radically unique approach to animal welfare, as our medical staff is encouraged to spend time building trusting relationships with clients and provide referral information for concerns that cannot be addressed in a mobile environment.
BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF ANIMAL WELFARE
This role offers an unparalleled opportunity to be part of a brand new approach to medicine, where so often pet care is dictated by zip code and access is variable depending on where pets and their people live. As we bring our state-of-the-art mobile clinics to neighborhoods with limited access to traditional brick & mortar veterinary practices, the veterinarian in this role is part of changing that paradigm: bringing high quality outpatient medical services where theyre needed and actively creating healthier, more humane communities where animals are well cared for by the people who love them. If being part of something new excites you, if it fills you with enthusiasm to discover and capitalize on the potential of a new program and approach - read on!
LOVE YOUR WORK AND YOUR LIFE
The work of the Community Medicine Veterinarian is on the leading edge of animal welfare and goes beyond the standard practice. In addition to opportunities to engage with communities in a meaningful way, this dual role enables those looking to build upon solid surgical skills to achieve excellence as a spay/neuter surgeon. As a Community Medicine Veterinarian, work time is focused around genuine care of the animal and the client to help both to live better lives. This is a 40 hours/week position (5 days/week) that does not require on-call shifts, nights, or Sunday hours. Some flexibility is required to occasionally work beyond the end of the day. Join the ASPCA and become part of a dynamic organization that puts the welfare of animals and their humans first.
