Internship-trained or experienced emergency doctors wanted at Ocean State Veterinary Specialists (OSVS). OSVS is a large and busy 24 hour emergency and specialty referral center located in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, in the heart of southern New England. We offer referral and emergency services to RI, eastern CT and southern MA. There is no general practice associated with the hospital. Equipment includes digital radiography, ultrasound, CT, MRI, laparoscopy, mechanical ventilation, telemetry, fluoroscopy, and state-of-the-art monitoring equipment. The staff includes specialists in internal medicine, surgery, radiology, emergency/critical care, cardiology, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, clinical pathology and avian/exotics, as well as a large group of experienced emergency clinicians.

The hospital places a premium on continuing education. Daily case rounds provide an opportunity for continuous learning. We have in-house education for doctors and technicians, and host referring veterinarians for continuing education forums several times a year. We have a very well-respected internship as well as emergency/critical care and surgery residencies, which help to promote a didactic atmosphere and gives the emergency clinicians and specialists ample opportunity to teach others. The support staff is highly trained and enthusiastic about continuing education as well. 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 a large group of specialists. The emergency doctors do not just work evenings and weekends, they work many daytime 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! The opportunity to split time between the RI hospital and our sister facility in Massachusetts is also available. The clinics are only 25 minutes apart. The MA hospital will be moving into a newly renovated 36,000sf building in the summer of 2024.

The environment at OSVS is very supportive. Inpatient shifts start with sit-down rounds, where we discuss all of the patients on the emergency service. ER clinicians who have been with us for 10 years tell us that they still learn every day that they work here. Despite having grown to a staff of over 50 doctors, the hospital still has a family feel, and our people know that we care about them.

This is a tremendous environment to continue learning and growing. Compensation is a base salary plus production, and benefits include health insurance, 401K, CE, and all licenses and professional memberships required to practice here. Relocation and signing bonus available. OSVS has the resources and staff of a University teaching hospital, with the family environment of a private practice. Many of our emergency doctors stayed on after their internship, or have been here for years, because they love the medicine, and the culture. Come meet your new work family and make a difference to a lot of pets and their people.
