Internship-trained or experienced emergency doctors wanted for Bay State Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Services (BSVESS) in Swansea, MA. BSVESS is currently a small 24 hour emergency and specialty hospital with full time internal medicine, emergency/critical care, and surgery. In the summer of 2024 we will be moving into a newly renovated 36,000 sf. building with a large and modern ICU, and a dedicated specialty center. We will be expanding our specialty services to include oncology (medical and radiation), dermatology, ophthalmology, cardiology, exotics and radiology. Equipment will include digital radiography, ultrasound, CT, laparoscopy, mechanical ventilation, telemetry, linear accelerator, and state-of-the-art monitoring equipment. BSVESS is only 25 minutes from our Rhode Island facility – Ocean State Veterinary Specialists – and there is the opportunity to work at both locations if preferred. That facility is also undergoing expansion with a new, large ICU opening in the summer of 2024 as well.

The hospitals place a premium on continuing education. Daily case rounds ensure excellence in case management through collaborative discussion and provide an opportunity for continuous learning. There is in-house education for staff doctors, technicians, and referring veterinarians. We have a highly respected internship at OSVS as well as emergency/critical care and surgical residencies, which helps to promote a didactic atmosphere and gives the emergency clinicians and specialists ample opportunity for teaching as well as personal professional growth. The BSVESS facility will likely begin to offer advanced training programs as well. The support staff is highly trained and enthusiastic about continuing education. The technicians working in the intensive care unit are capable of managing most nursing cases, including those on mechanical ventilation, peritoneal dialysis, continuous thoracic drainage, etc.

This position offers emergency clinicians a unique opportunity to work in a well-equipped, state-of-the-art facility, side-by-side with criticalists and a large group of other specialists. The emergency doctors do not just work evenings and weekends, they work weekday inpatient shifts as well, giving them the opportunity to manage critical care patients and benefit from the referral hospital environment. The desire to continue learning and to participate in the teaching of interns and student externs is very important, and a good sense of humor is essential!
Swansea, MA is only an hour south of Boston, 15 minutes from Providence, and less than an hour from Cape Cod. Rhode Island offers a vibrant city, extensive beaches and great outdoor space, as well as ready access to NYC and Boston, New England skiing, and all that New England has to offer. Both areas provide options for urban or rural living, with plenty of activities for any interests.

Our hospitals have a reputation for high quality medicine and a positive and fun working environment. These positions offer a unique opportunity for someone who wants the efficiency, independence, and support of a private practice with the teaching opportunities, interaction with multiple specialists, and advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options most typical of a university. We offer a generous compensation package with signing bonus, production-based bonus potential and excellent benefits including a 401K program. We are part of the United Veterinary Care family of hospitals.
