Associate Veterinarian (FT or PT) for a progressive & fun-loving team in Springfield, IL
Laketown Animal Hospital is looking to add a PT or FT associate veterinarian to our growing, four-doctor, AAHA accredited small animal practice.
We are looking for someone who is hardworking, motivated, and who wants to practice excellent medicine as part of a team. Experienced veterinarians or new grads are welcome. We offer a mentorship for new grads, including consultation on cases, assistance/guidance in surgery, weekly rounds, and an introduction of the new team member to clients to help them build their own client base.

Each doctor has a dedicated technician/assistant for their entire shift, then there are several additional CVTs to help out where needed so you can maximize your time actually practicing medicine. We provide a supportive environment to allow our vets to practice in all areas of clinical medicine and surgery. Pursuing additional training in an area of interest is encouraged.
