The Hernas Veterinary Clinic of Schenectady, New York seeks one or more associate veterinarians to join our growing, busy, small animal practice. We practice a team-centered approach to care, with efficiency and flexibility as key elements. The clinic has digital x-ray, digital dental x-ray, cold laser therapy, a complete surgical suite, and full lab capability. The clinic has a well-deserved reputation for diagnostic excellence, and the successful applicant will have good-to-excellent diagnostic skills. Surgeries range from simple spay/neuters to procedures such as bowel obstructions, tumor removal, and pinning broken bones. While each veterinarian has complete responsibility for their cases, collaboration and consultation with the senior veterinarian is always available.

Appointments are seen mornings and late afternoons, with surgeries scheduled for the late morning. The clinic makes referrals to regional specialists when appropriate. There are two emergency clinics in the area nearby to which we refer emergencies that call-in after hours or on weekends, therefore there are no late-night emergencies. The clinic is open Monday through Friday with one late day (7PM on Wednesday). We are open Saturday mornings with the doctors covering on a rotating basis.

Successful applicants will be licensed to practice in New York State and possess good diagnostic, surgical, and client skills. Must be willing to learn and adapt to the practice’s system of operation. Experience is preferred but required. Medical insurance, vacation, 401K, paid sick leave, year-end (or monthly) bonus. There is a sign-on bonus as well.

Schenectady, New York along with nearby Albany and Troy is at the heart of New York’s Capitol Region. With Proctors, Schenectady boasts the area’s premiere venue for the performing arts. Downtown has seen a successful redevelopment in recent years and now features a mix of commercial, new residential, and many small businesses to explore including restaurants, brewpubs, retail, and a brand-new casino/resort alongside the historic Mohawk River. The city of Saratoga Springs, with the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Spa State Park, and the world-famous Saratoga Race Course (thoroughbreds) is but a short drive away. The Adirondack Park’s nearly 6 million acres (larger than the entire state of Connecticut) and Lake George, the Queen of America’s Lakes, beckon the outdoors enthusiast and are just an hour’s drive away. It’s a 3 hour drive to New York or Boston and an hour more will see you to downtown Montreal.

I would love to have a conversation with you about joining our practice, either via email or a brief chat. I look forward to hearing from you.
