Southwest Equine Hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona is seeking a board-certified or board-eligible Equine Surgeon. SWEH is a well-established 100% equine practice with a rapidly expanding caseload. We pride ourselves on having a collaborative and practical approach to patient care and seek a like-minded individual to join our team.
Interested applicants must have a passion for sports medicine/lameness as well as surgery and a willingness to provide care both in hospital and ambulatory settings. The Phoenix metro area has an ample equine population to allow a motivated and talented individual with excellent communication skills to significantly expand the surgical caseload. Current sports medicine caseload is primarily sport horses and pleasure horses, but there are also very large populations of western performance horses and Arabians in the area. The successful applicant will join a board-certified internist, two general practitioners (one is acupuncture and laser certified), two interns and 5 support staff members. Emergency duty is shared on a rotational basis, and the majority of after-hours ambulatory emergencies are attended by our interns. Emergency surgery on-call is shared with local board-certified surgeons that have hospital privileges.
SWEH is a full-service ambulatory and referral hospital with wireless DR, portable ultrasound, portable shockwave, regenerative therapies, upper airway endoscopy / laser, gastroscopy, arthroscopy and in-house laboratory. The OR is well equipped and renovated in 2018. Advanced imaging (MRI, Nuclear Scintigraphy) is available at nearby equine hospitals, with patients returning to SWEH for treatment and follow-up.
Scottsdale and the surrounding Phoenix metro area is an excellent area to live, work and play with >300 sunny days per year.
