BluePearl Part Time Veterinarian - Pet Hospice in Houston, Texas
Part Time Veterinarian - Pet Hospice
Are you looking to regain that elusive work-life balance? Does flexibility in your day sound like an appealing change of pace? How about getting back to the art of medicine, connecting with your clients and patients in a meaningful way instead of rushing from one exam room to the next? If this resonates with you, BluePearl Pet Hospice, a member of BluePearl's Ancillary Medical Services, wants to meet you!
Veterinary hospice & palliative care is a rapidly emerging field within veterinary medicine. Pet Hospice is not only dedicated to being at the forefront of care, we’re the team leading the charge. Our expansion within BluePearl specialty hospitals positions us to set the bar for hospice and end-of-life services nationwide.
As a member of Ancillary Medical Services, we function independently, and our structure allows us the advantages of a large organization while keeping that home-grown, small practice feel. We do not take the place of the primary care veterinarian or specialist, but rather work collaboratively with them to provide adjunctive in-home options for palliative care and end-of-life services.
Summary of the role:
Our veterinarians provide both home-based and telehealth consultations, supporting families in accessing palliative care services with a focus on pain management, symptom control and quality of life guidance in addition to compassionate, skilled euthanasia.
You will not be practicing alone in a silo. We take an interdisciplinary approach to care, and you will work alongside a highly skilled team of Veterinarians, RVTs, Care Coordinators, and Pet Loss Specialists to provide superior in-home care. We utilize our nursing team and telehealth for ongoing management, allowing a remote approach to patient care. You will experience a light-hearted, team-oriented environment big on work-life balance and self-preservation. We don’t like stress and our goal is to provide flexibility around family and everyday life (this is not just lip service, we mean it). We want to put the joy back into medicine, which is why we offer extended appointment times, allowing an in-depth approach to patient care and fostering client relationships. Hospice and palliative care is a growing field with incredible opportunities for education and professional development, which we are excited to support.
Who we need:
We are looking for veterinarians who are natural communicators and who wish to advance their skills in pain and symptom management and end-of-life care. We want someone who shares in our desire to make a lasting contribution in the field of veterinary palliative care within our industry. A high level of organization and follow through will ensure success. Emergency experience is a plus, but not required. Must be able to lift a minimum of 50 pounds and have a clean, reliable vehicle. Part-time and full-time positions available.
Our passion is pets. We offer Trupanion pet insurance and discounts to our associates for pet treatments, procedures, and food.
We encourage you to grow with us. Our technicians are leveled by their skillset and move up in level as they gain more skills and experience. We are focused on developing our associates into leaders through talent development programs and leadership workshops. As a member of Mars Veterinary Health, our associates have endless opportunities to advance in his/her career.
In order to transform and lead the industry through innovative quality medicine and care, we understand the importance of continuous learning. We offer annual continuing education allowance, free continuing education sessions, our own BluePearl University for training, and our clinicians have access to over 2,000 medical journals.
We value your health and well-being as an associate by providing you with the following:
Health, dental, vision, and life insurance options.
Annual company store allowance.
Flexible work schedules.
Time to reset, rewind, and reflect through our paid time off, parental leave, and floating holiday plans.
A regional licensed social worker who can provide guidance, advice, and tips/tricks on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle while working in a fast-paced emergency and specialty care environment.
