Chicago Equine Medical Center in the Northwest Chicagoland area, is seeking an experienced equine veterinarian interested in making a long-term impact on a varied horse population in Northeastern Illinois. Our team includes a board-certified surgeon who values education. Our ideal associates are committed and motivated to providing the best care possible for our hospitalized, outpatient, and ambulatory patients. Veterinarians with an interest in acupuncture or VSMT are encouraged to apply, and mentorship-focused Jr. Associate roles are available for new or recent graduates.
Our practice offers the opportunity to work in a full-service outpatient facility and surgical center with modern diagnostic and treatment options. Chicago Equine provides clients with 24 hour emergency and critical care availability. Because our team’s quality of life is a top priority, emergency coverage is shared among Chicago Equine veterinarians and a select group of referring equine veterinarians, resulting in a minimal on-call commitment consisting of one weekend every 6 weeks for a 12-18 week time period (and typically one or maybe two weekday ERs during that same time period). Our team approach makes us uniquely able to serve all of our client’s needs and provide advanced diagnostics, hospitalization and surgery services to the patients of local referring veterinarians.
Qualified candidates can expect a compensation package including, but not limited to:
- Minimum base salary of $110k plus production
- Three weeks PTO
- $3000 annual CE stipend with additional PTO days for CE purposes
- Paid relocation assistance or a travel stipend for non-local candidates looking to explore the area prior to making a permanent move
