Emergency/Urgent Care Veterinarian for our Exotics and Companion Animals
Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital
Midwest Bird & Exotic Animal Hospital, located in a suburb of Chicago, IL, is looking for an Associate Veterinarian (DVM) interested or with experience in Emergency/Urgent Care to join our team!
We are a 5 doctor, full-service veterinary general practice and emergency facility that is open 24 hours per day and treats a wide array of pets. Exotics are our exclusive specialty by day, but our after-hours emergency practice (7pm-8am) is additionally open for dogs and cats. While we have long been rooted in Elmwood Park, we are undergoing a complete remodel of our facilities to further enable our top of the line medicine, and is soon to be completed by September 2020!
In this role, you would be the Veterinarian responsible for our urgent care hours, which are from 7pm until 8am, three days a week (3 on/4 off!).
Exotic experience is not necessary, but is a plus. Mentorship is available.
New graduates are welcome to apply and will be supported and mentored by our Veterinarians on days, before transitioning to nights.
What do we offer? Lots of things, including:

As an added reward, pick one bonus from each category!
What makes someone a good fit?
If you’re an enthusiastic, team-player who enjoys emergency veterinary work and doesn’t mind winter-weather in a fantastic city, you’d be a great fit for our hospital. A DVM degree is required, but again exotic experience is not and mentorship can be provided.

Plus, we are located in fantastic Elmwood Park, directly adjacent to Chicago and Oak Park, with endless restaurants and nightlife. Parks, forest preserves, rivers, and Lake Michigan for beach and watersport activities at your fingertips. All the benefits of downtown Chicago are just a 20 minute drive east including world class dining, shopping, music, museums, theaters, art galleries, sporting events, and sightseeing.
