We are now hiring urgent care doctors!
Integrity Veterinary Center (IVC) is looking for veterinarians to join our urgent care service! Our urgent care service sees cases on an appointment basis that require same day or next day evaluation, but are not life-threatening emergencies. Typical cases for the urgent care service include ear infections, lameness, hematuria, wounds of unknown origin, simple lacerations, anorexia, or vomiting/diarrhea. As an urgent care veterinarian at IVC, you will work together with our hospital manager to make sure that the types of cases on your schedule are ones that you are comfortable seeing.
IVC is a specialty and urgent care hospital in Northampton, MA. We opened in October of 2022 with medical oncology, outpatient ultrasound services, urgent care, and internal medicine. You will be working with a board-certified internist, criticalist, and oncologist. Addition of a surgeon in the near future is planned. We are committed to practicing the highest standard of medicine, with the aim of helping each patient live comfortably and happily for as long as possible. We are a privately owned hospital with no plans for corporate affiliation.
High case volumes and widespread staffing shortages are leading to burnout across the field of veterinary medicine. Given this, our aim is to cultivate a healthy and sustainable working environment for our whole team.
More specifically, we prioritize work-life balance (4 day work week, benefits include 3 weeks of vacation and 1 week of CE time), competitive salary ($120,000-$150,000+, open to more for the right candidate), appropriate staffing ratios (at least 2 dedicated support staff per doctor), kindness and respect (zero tolerance for abusive behavior from clients), and honest/open communication practices. If you are a recent grad (or a newcomer to the field of urgent care) and you are looking for structured mentorship, we can offer that as well.
Other benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance, pet insurance stipend, uniform and shoe stipend, CE/discretionary stipend, liability insurance, and reimbursement for your MA, MCSR, and DEA licenses. As a full-time urgent care veterinarian at IVC, you will have the opportunity to choose a schedule of shifts that is sustainable for you. We believe non-compete and non-solicitation agreements are generally harmful to our profession, and therefore we do not use them. If there are other benefits that you have in mind, please ask!
IVC is located in Northampton, Massachusetts, about 3 hours from NYC and 1.5-2 hours from Boston. It’s hard to write a city description without it sounding unhelpfully generic, so here are some of our favorite things about Northampton:
-Cafes: The best eclairs in existence can be found at the Woodstar Cafe. We also love the coffee and matcha at Familiars, the sandwiches at the Roost, and the delicious smoothies (plus the community support/activism) at the Haymarket.
-Restaurants: Noodles makes delicious Asian noodle soups, rice bowls, and traditional Thai style salads. Both Amanouz and Mosaic have fantastic Moroccan food (plus a wide selection of crepes), and Daily Operation in nearby Easthampton has a variety of farm-centric, mostly American-style options with occasional bonus live music.
-Outdoor Adventures: There are plenty of hiking trails, a climbing gym in nearby Hadley, and a variety of running and cycling clubs. There’s a giant hill on the Smith College campus which is absolutely fantastic for sledding. Ask our doctors about their favorite kayaking spots!
-Indoor Activities: Easthampton Clay offers regular pottery classes, and we promise you’ve never been to a bigger yarn store than Webs. There are numerous new and used book shops in and around Northampton, and the Baker’s Pin hosts regular (virtual and in-person) cooking and baking classes.
