Are you an ambitious Veterinarian searching for a job in a state-of-the-art hospital, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, to match your ambitions?

Prospect Health are working with a well-established, AAHA accredited busy 16 doctor hospital in one of the most up and coming cities in America. More recently known as the 'baby Atlanta' Charlotte is a busy, vibrant city just a couple of hours away from the beach and stunning mountains. So, whatever your interests outside of work there is plenty for you and your family to enjoy!

The hospital itself is a state-of-the-art facility and only in the last four years did they move to a brand-new, purpose-built site. With over 30,000 square feet the hospital offers large working spaces with plenty of toys, equipment and further room to grow! The hospital boasts some amazing facilities and equipment such as 11 spacious examination rooms, endoscopy, laparoscopy, abdominal and cardiac ultrasound, digital radiology, a fully equipped in-house lab and pharmacy, two surgical suites, two dental suites, as well as radioactive iodine treatment for hyperthyroid felines, acupuncture and a full canine rehabilitation facility.

If you are seeking an opportunity to work within a multi-doctor hospital, to be fully supported and encouraged to practice the best possible medicine, then this is the hospital and opportunity for you! Clinical interests are actively encouraged and will be supported with mentorship, exposure to the relevant cases and further education. You will be working alongside 16 likeminded doctors with a varied range of clinical interests including two certificate holders and their very own emergency team.
