Positions at Greater Staten Island Veterinary Services
Licensed Veterinary Technicians:
Responsibilities include everything outside of prescribing/diagnosing/and performing surgery. Our veterinary technicians are expected to be the front line of nursing care, providing appropriate medical care and treatments as ordered by the veterinarian. They will handle the administration and monitoring of anesthetics, laboratory testing, radiographs, triage, assessment of pain and patient advocacy, etc. They ensure their patients are clean and taken care of. They will have responsibilities in the mentoring and training of less experienced technicians and assistants. LVTs should be knowledgeable in anatomy & physiology, disease processes, drug calculations, patient protocols, CPR, etc. Continuing education is mandatory as well as on-going in-hospital training to expand their skills and knowledgebase.
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, and flexible team members with exceptional time management and communication skills. New graduates and current students are welcomed! Internship agreements are in place with some of the veterinary technology programs in the region. We are a NY state approved provider of continuing education, and offer in-hospital CE events for our team members. On-going training, mentorship, and continued development of your skills and knowledge are important to us.
The veterinary assistant is intended for those who have not attended school for veterinary technology and/or are early in their career in veterinary medicine. The primary role for the assistant is to help facilitate the treatment and examination of patients by LVTs and doctors. This is achieved by learning proper handling and restraint methods, preparing and running laboratory tests, performing radiographs, and providing for the general welfare of our patients. Basic husbandry such as walking, feeding, and cleaning is essential to ensuring successful hospital stays. Cleaning and maintaining inventory at workstations/throughout the hospital is vital to successful operations. Assistants are expected to learn about anatomy and physiology, normal vitals, disease processes, etc., to enable them to take on more responsibilities and become better advocates for their patients. Veterinary Technician students and those considering a career in veterinary medicine are encouraged to apply for the veterinary assistant position. This is a great stepping stone in achieving your goals.
Client Service Representatives:
Primary representative and liaison between our clients and the rest of the team. Common responsibilities include answering the phones, greeting clients and patients when they enter the building, creation of charts/accounts, financial transactions, etc. They will request records from other hospitals, as well as facilitate requests for records/medications for clients and other hospitals. The ability to multi-task and thrive in a fast paced environment is crucial.
We are looking for experienced, enthusiastic, motivated veterinarians comfortable with a busy caseload to join our growing emergency service family. Our emergency doctors are responsible for incoming emergency cases, managing hospitalized cases, and play an integral role in establishing and maintaining communications and relationships with our referring veterinarians, clients and the general public. Strong communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. Our emergency doctors will be expected to help oversee the intern and the support staff on the emergency service and participate in their learning. They may also work as the sole emergency doctor at some times and must be able to triage and multitask. The ideal candidate would have completed an internship or have a few years of emergency experience. An interest in performing emergency abdominal surgery would be a bonus! Our emergency doctors are trained in performing abdominal ultrasound.
