Pay & Benefits

The Most Important Individual

FAIR PAY

When a veterinarian comes to work each day, they are the most important person in the building, because without them, there is no business.

The revenue generated through the vet’s activities each hour, pays every employee in the building.

That’s the case, no matter what hospital you work in.

A Doctor’s Value

A doctor once said, “It doesn’t matter how hard I work, I still get paid the same.”  As smart as that doctor was about medicine, they were not very bright about business.

That doctor didn’t realize how important they were to the entire hospital staff.  That doctor didn’t seem to understand that the everyone in the hospital relied on their production for their very livelihoods.

The technicians listening didn’t appear to understand it either, because if they did, they might be more eager to support the doctor to be more productive.

There are 2 types of money that every hospital administrator is concerned with – expenses & revenue.  Veterinary clients provide revenue that is used to pay the hospital’s expenses.

And who’s driving the bus?  The DVM.

Vet-Med vs…

Veterinary medicine is a little different than, say, manufacturing.  In manufacturing, there are a number of key entities that need to work for the entire operation to produce revenue and be profitable.  If the assembly line stops, there are no products to sell.  If the sales & marketing team stops, money stops coming in to pay the employees.  If the fulfillment team stops, then orders fail to get delivered, thereby destroying consumer confidence, resulting in refund requests and killing brand loyalty.

As a veterinary doctor at one of our hospitals, you’ll have up to 4 technicians working with you, plus 1-2 Client Services Specialists (receptionists).  You’re job duties will be a combination of medicine & delegation of tasks & responsibilities to the technicians and CSSs.

The goal is to maximize the efficiency of your day, to ensure that you can practice medicine to the best of your abilities.

Many hospitals have a 1.5-to-1 or a 2-to-1 technician-to-doctor ratio.  Fewer technicians means that the doctor has to perform more technician tasks and less medicine, ultimately seeing fewer patients, because more time is spent with the pets.  This type of environment can leave a vet feeling rushed all day, and exhausted at the end of it.

With more qualified support staff helping the doctor, the doctor is able to physically see more patients, generating enough revenue to pay everyone in the building.

Get Paid What You’re Worth

Being a doctor in one of our hospitals means that you get to practice medicine without feeling overwhelmed.

It also means that you’ll get paid a little more than the industry standard, while working in paradise.
