    Mission Veterinary Emergency and Specialty (MVES) is seeking a Criticalist or individual who has completed an ACVECC approved residency training program in emergency and critical care.

    Mission is a well-known Specialty hospital founded in 1993. We started the practice with a commitment to our RDVM’s, their clients and pets.  We have not varied from that commitment.  Daily communication with RDVM’s and clients is the norm for our practice.  We work diligently to reinforce those interpersonal relationships that provide the cornerstone to our success. Our growth and success can be attributed to our commitment to our clients and referring veterinarians, collaboration and education.

    Collaboration: Our ECC, internal medicine, and surgery departments work to create seamless transition for case management.  The top priority is best care for each patient.  That translates to cooperation between specialists to provide top quality care.  Our criticalists have cage side rounds each morning with interns and nursing staff.  These rounds provide a direct interaction with the Criticalist, keeping them in direct contact with cases.  Case transfers occur daily with direct communication between our specialists.

    Education: Mission offers a rotating internship, and a surgical internship.  We provide radiology rounds weekly for our interns, and our interns experience daily ICU rounds in the morning prior to specialists’ appointments.  In addition, our interns have 4 formal presentations during the year. Our interns have successfully transitioned to private practice and residencies.  Most recently our 3 interns placed into ECC residency (Milwaukee), dentistry residency (KC), and surgical internship (here at MVES).  We work hard to provide opportunity for each intern to reach their professional aspirations.

    Make a Thriving Practice Stronger

    Mission has grown into one of the most respected hospitals in the state. As we look to continue to strive for excellence, we need a Criticalist to help us achieve our goals. You will be a catalyst for Mission’s growth and influence the development of the Critical Care team. If you are looking for a hospital with a great culture where people genuinely like each other and practices a high level of medicine, join Mission and become the reason why we become an even better practice.

    How your impact will be felt at Mission

    Catalyst for MVES growth – We have developed our ECC department into an integral part of the business.  The impact that criticalists have in our patient care has resulted in substantial growth in the hospital.  The expertise and innovation brought to our practice through Criticalist intervention is good for patients, clients, RDVM’s, and other specialists in our hospital.  The collaborative effort between our specialists affords this substantial benefit.

    Training and Development – You’ll have the opportunity to oversee both interns and to train new ER doctors. You need to be passionate about the development of others in order to make Mission a better practice.

We ventilate approximately 30-40 cases per year.

     

    The ideal candidate will have a supportive and positive outlook, be a strong multitasker, a great communicator, and will not be easily overwhelmed. We have a young faculty, work extremely well as a team, and work together to try to allow for a balance between work and personal life.
