Are you tired of constantly battling why you became a vet and the unrealistic expectations of the business of veterinary medicine?
Are you ready to be a healer of animals and less like a used car salesperson?
We at The Cooke Veterinary Medical Centerbelieve that you, in fact, can have it all.You can be a great veterinarian that heals the fur babies AND have a great quality of life!By providing the best care for your patients and clients with the best diagnostic tools, the bottom line takes care of itself.
By treating the patients, clients, and staff with respect, and mutual care and concern, the bottom line takes care of its self.
By having you work less crazy hours and only 1 soccer Saturday a month, the bottom line takes care of itself.At ‘The Place for Healing’, we mean healing for everyone, not just the patients.
We have used this ‘business model’ for 20+ years and it works well.Our staff are happy, our clients are happy,ANDwe are able to help our cherished patients with advanced diagnostics, alternative therapies, and the best western medicine.However, we need YOU to help us grow further.
We seek a full time veterinarian who likes to teach us as well as learn from us.We believe every team member is vital to learning.The ideal person would be interested in acupuncture, chiropractic, cats as well as traditional medicine and modalities.
The Cooke Veterinary Medical Center is not a corporation, but is a local, woman owned business.Dr. Denette Cooke opened the center in 2002 and plans to convert her practice to an employee owned business.She believes in order to ‘fix’ veterinary medicine, the ownership of the practice should reflect the employees of the practice.Those members who have skin in the game and have been on the front line of healing, deserve to be a part of the rewards of ownership, as well as the rewards of healing. At The Cooke Veterinary Medical Center, we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage candidates of all backgrounds to apply.Dr. Cooke ferventlybelieves that we are currently on an unsustainable path in the profession. Veterinarians must own and lead the business of healing and not ‘the investors’ with no experience in what we do. We can change the profession and this is a start.
