    The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine is pleased to announce an open search for two faculty positions in Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care. We are accepting applications for either tenure track or clinical track applicants at the assistant or associate level. The goal of this search is to fill one NEW and one existing faculty position, for a total of four ECC faculty. Further information is provided below regarding the history of our ECC team, the positions, and the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine as a whole.

    The Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Services at UW-Madison

    The UW Veterinary Care (UWVC) Emergency Service was established in the summer of 2008. In the past five years, the caseload has doubled to more than 5000 cases per year. In this same timeframe, critical care has developed as an inpatient care and hospital support service, which is largely separate from our emergency receiving service. Our emergency medicine and critical care teams presently include three faculty, four residents, eight rotating interns, and 22 technicians. Since beginning our residency program in 2009, we have proudly trained 8 ACVECC diplomates. With continued growth in our robust caseload, this fourth faculty position will enable the emergency medicine and critical care services to function as parallel teams under separate (yet collaborative) faculty supervision within UWVC and expand research and teaching in the School of Veterinary Medicine.

    Numerous remodeling projects have supported the hospital's growth over the past ten years. The development of an intermediate care unit is presently underway and is expected to be functional by the summer of 2020. Apart from smaller remodeling processes, UW Veterinary Care is currently working with hospital architects to develop the final plans for a newly constructed hospital, which is due to open in 2023.

    Our critical care unit, an open-concept ICU, is equipped to enable advanced care for critically ill patients with routine use of high-flow nasal oxygen, mechanical ventilation, telemetry, a well-equipped in-house blood bank, and many other related services. The ECC and Internal Medicine teams are open to re-starting a dialysis (CRRT) service in the future, based on the interest and expertise of hired and existing faculty. The emergency medicine and critical care services routinely collaborate and consult with other clinical specialties throughout the hospital. In addition, the ECC team collaborates with our Special Species service on evenings and weekends to provide emergency care for exotic pets. Previous experience with exotic animal practice is not required to succeed in this position.

    We enjoy working in a friendly and collaborative hospital environment that centers around patient care and creating a positive learning environment for students, interns, and residents.

    Faculty Positions at the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine

    Applications from finishing residents and established diplomates of ACVECC are welcomed.

    Academic experience or relevant practice experience beyond residency training is preferred but not mandatory. Aptitude and/or experience in clinical instruction of DVM students, interns, and residents are also expected.

The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work cooperatively with all sections of the hospital and department.

    Upon arrival new faculty members work with the department chair to identify both a mentoring committee and teaching committee. Teaching opportunities at the SVM have gone beyond typical classroom and laboratory teaching since the 2017 construction of the Renk Learning Center, which is comprised of the Clinical Skills Training Center and Active Learning Room. Faculty are also encouraged to develop active learning modules and selectives courses to supplement pre-clinical coursework. To enhance research and clinical advancement, many SVM faculty maintain productive research and clinical collaborations with individuals from other UW professional programs, including the School of Medicine and Public Health, School of Pharmacy, Biomedical Engineering, among many others.
