VCA Animal Hospitals has an exciting medical leadership opportunity for a highly experienced veterinarian with a client centric attitude to join our team in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Virginia as Regional Medical Director.
The Regional Medical Director (RMD) will be responsible for guiding the medical direction of both GP and Specialty hospitals. The bulk of the RMD’s time is spent traveling to the various hospital locations and working with their hospital medical teams. 75% overnight travel can be expected. Primary residence is required to be in the Atlanta, Georgia area.
If you have been thinking about shifting gears from full-time clinical practice to a more global role in leadership, mentoring, and medical education, this could represent the opportunity you have been looking for. We have an outstanding group of RMDs on our VCA team.
Candidates must have a passion for veterinary medicine and the desire to continuously improve the quality of medical care delivered in our hospitals. The RMD is an integral part of the regional management team, which includes a Group Vice President and Regional Operations Directors. Responsibilities will include working with Dr. Todd Tams (VCA’s Chief Medical Officer) and the regional management team to help set and implement standards of medical practice and patient care, support a positive client experience in every hospital, deliver medical staff training, evaluate medical equipment needs, and participate in performance reviews.
Key qualifications include board certification, excellent communication skills, self-motivation and experience in training veterinarians in either a private practice or academic environment. This is an opportunity to positively impact medical quality and patient care in multiple locations, through mentorship and education.
