Are you apprehensive about seeing certain types of cases? Do you wish you could do more in a small animal practice setting? Do you have more knowledge than experience/confidence - or do you have lots of experience and want to be challenged with procedures and cases that are often lost to referral? We are seeking one such passionate and enthusiastic veterinarian to join our team.
Lake Forest Animal Hospital is an AAHA accredited, recently renovated, state-of-the-art, three doctor hospital in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Our highly capable and well trained staff are comfortable handling complex cases, surgeries, and emergencies. We routinely perform in-house abdominal and cardiac ultrasounds, intra-abdominal and intra-thoracic surgeries, orthopedic procedures including CCL and fracture repairs; and competently tackle in-patient cases that many small animal practices prefer to refer.
Our head veterinarian, Dr. Liberto, has been practicing high-quality, standard of care medicine for over thirty years. Through experience and continuing education, he constantly tests the limits of what can be done in small animal practice. Throughout his career he has pushed many associate veterinarians of all experience levels to do the same and has given them the tools, knowledge, and confidence to treat complicated medical and surgical cases safely and successfully.
We are family friendly and flexible; but none of us "call it in;" we all share the load. You will not be worked to death, but will be expected to work hard as part of a dynamic team that loves this work. Regardless of your level of experience, Dr. Liberto will give you as much instruction or autonomy as you would like and will back you up 100%.
Apply only if you are an enthusiastic, outgoing, flexible doctor who is great with people AND animals.
