The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine is seeking two veterinarians to provide full-time equine ambulatory clinical teaching and service. The successful applicants will be expected to provide exceptional patient care and excellent client service to maintain and build equine clientele in an academic clinical teaching setting.
One of the positions will be based in the Equine Ambulatory Field Service at the OSU Veterinary Medical Center in Columbus, and the successful applicant will join the faculty of the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences. The Equine Field Service unit is housed within the comprehensive Veterinary Medical Center and Galbreath Equine Center with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. This position will serve equine patients exclusively, and shared primary and backup after-hours emergency care of equine patients will be expected.
The second position will be based at the OSU Large Animal Services ambulatory clinic located in Marysville, Ohio and the successful applicant will join the faculty of the Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. The Marysville ambulatory service has over 5,000 active clients yielding more than 7,000 farm calls each year. The practice is housed in a 9,000 square foot state-of-the-art building located approximately 30 miles northwest of the Columbus campus. This position will primarily serve equine patients, but shared primary and backup after-hours emergency care of both equine and other large animal patients will be expected.
Both the Equine Field Service unit in Columbus and the Large Animal Services in Marysville support core clinical teaching rotations required for all professional DVM students during their clinical year. Future integration of the two units is planned with shared local equine caseload and teaching responsibilities expected.
Applicants should be academically oriented and have demonstrated skills and interests in clinical medicine and teaching. The successful candidates will currently be practicing high quality, progressive equine veterinarians, or large animal veterinarians with an equine emphasis, and must be dedicated to building and maintaining a satisfied clientele as well as teaching veterinary students. The successful candidates will also participate in didactic teaching in the core and elective pre-clinical veterinary professional DVM curriculum and will be encouraged to conduct or collaborate in field-oriented research relevant to the health, welfare, and productivity of the practice clientele.
Required qualifications include a DVM (or equivalent) and eligibility for Ohio licensure. Graduate training and board-certification or eligibility are highly desirable but not required. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience. The Ohio State University makes available to faculty a comprehensive benefits package.
