VCA Animal Diagnostic Clinic ( , VCA’s leading specialty practice serving North Texas and the Dallas metroplex area, is seeking Veterinarians (non-boarded) to join our team as full-time Hospitalists .

ADC is a high-volume specialty referral practice offering Small Animal Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Medical and Radiation Oncology, and Critical Care cases for direct referrals.

Our team of hospitalist allows for 24-hour 7 day a week doctor care for inpatients. The team of three hospitalists supervises the implementation of treatment plans created by the veterinary specialist and medically manages changes with patient status during non-admitting hours. Additionally, ADC plans to further maximize our hospitalists by implementing after-hours admittance only for current ADC patients with acute illness.

  • 36-hour work weeks

  • 12-hour shifts 3 days a week (that is 4 days off a week!)

  • No Holidays
