We have a fantastic opportunity for a dedicated veterinary professional looking to advance in the field of neurology and eager to contribute to a collaborative team!

You'll become a part of a team comprised of three ECVN neurology specialists, three ECVN residents, and one neurology intern. In your role as a Neurology Referral Clinician, you'll offer expert consultations and advanced care for a variety of cases.

Advanced Facilities

Imaging capabilities boast a 64-slice Siemens Somatom Perspective Cardiac-Gated CT scanner and a 1.5T Hallmarq PetVet MRI. Ongoing expansion includes the upcoming replacement of the Hallmarq PetVet with a 1.5T High field Siemens Altea MRI in mid/late 2024. To enhance our imaging capabilities, we have incorporated a SonoCure ultrasonic aspirator, a Lifeline R40 EEG system, and a Nicolet Viking Quest EMG system.
