WebsiteVeterinary Specialists & Emergency Services

Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Services (VSES) is seeking a full-time, board-certified radiologist to join our thriving radiology service. We are a very busy practice and the only 24/7/365 emergency and specialty referral veterinary hospital in Rochester, NY serving over 1.2 million people and their pets.

Our radiology department has been a busy service for more than 10 years.  Currently, the service is supported by consultant radiologists as our full-time radiologist left in the beginning of 2018.  Our existing patient load and referral base will support a full-time radiologist service.

VSES is a part of Monroe Veterinary Associates, a group of locally owned veterinary practices that also includes 14 general practices, a spay/neuter clinic and a pet rehabilitation center. These practices, along with 30+ other veterinary practices in the region, provide a solid referral base upon which to continue the growth we have seen in the past several years. An expansion of our building to 28,000 square-feet was recently completed and will accommodate, amongst other patient and client service enhancements, a telemetry-equipped ICU, negative pressure isolation ward, and a dedicated feline ward. Our latest diagnostic imaging upgrades include the addition of a 16-slice Toshiba Aquilion CT machine and a Siemens Avanto 1.5 Tesla MRI.  These enhancements will support growth not only in diagnostic imaging but also in surgery, critical care and emergency.  Our emergency service consists of 13 attending clinicians and outstanding licensed veterinary technicians and assistants.  In addition, we collaborate with consultants in ophthalmology and anesthesiology.  VSES also supports well-established rotating internships, specialty internships and surgical residency programs, thus providing the opportunity to teach and influence recently graduated veterinarians.

Our ideal candidate should have a desire for a collaborative approach to healthcare, strong communications skills, excellent work ethic, an ability to serve as a mentor and coach to interns, and a dedication to lifelong learning. Our organization’s core values of teamwork, quality, compassion, honesty, trust, and education contribute to our hospital culture of collaboration and camaraderie.

Rochester is known for its exceptional quality of life, reasonable cost of living and excellent education at all levels. The Finger Lakes region provides opportunities for outdoor activities including hiking, boating, camping, fishing and many vineyards and wineries.

We provide a supportive mentoring environment and offer a generous salary, sign-on bonus and benefits including relocation assistance, health insurance, CE opportunities, 401k plan, association dues, and professional liability insurance.
