Is this your dream job? UF faculty position in shelter medicine/HQHVSN in Miami.
Love to teach but don’t want to trade in hands-on shelter practice or HQHVSN? Want to help recruit the next generation of shelter veterinarians? Love a high case load and the freedom to provide the level of care that transforms tragedy into triumph? Looking for a warmer climate and a cafecito?
If this is you, then you might be our next faculty member at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine . This position is based at one of the largest and most diverse shelters in the country: Miami-Dade Animal Services and oversees one of the most popular clinical clerkships in vet school. This clerkship is heavy on surgery (HQHVSN+more), with shelter and population medicine, a large veterinary department, TNR, and ever-expanding programs for animals and the people who care for them.
As the faculty member, you would be free to develop the rotation to emphasize the topics you are drawn to. This shelter has everything: HQHVSN, forensics, disaster response, individual animal care, population medicine, surgery, public outreach, etc.
The new shelter is beautiful. It handles 30,000 animals a year, and excellent management means is isn’t crowded and the live outcome rate is >90%. The leadership is very progressive and the veterinary team has a lot of input on operations.
Is it the job you’ve been waiting for? I am the chair of the search committee. Ask me anything!
