We are seeking a second full or part-time veterinary radiologist to join the diagnostic imaging practice at Chicago Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center (CVESC) on the north side of Chicago, Illinois. Candidates must hold a DVM or equivalent degree. Specialty board certified or residency-trained board qualified (ACVR) applicants will be considered.

Northeast Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging provides diagnostic imaging support for CVESC, which is rapidly expanding, and is the largest and most comprehensive emergency and specialty veterinary hospital in Chicago. CVESC is a privately owned, collaborative, 28,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility, offering specialty practices in diagnostic imaging, internal medicine, oncology, surgery, cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, dentistry, and dermatology, as well as a busy and well-established 24-hour emergency practice. In addition to two DR radiology suites and a dual ultrasound suite, there is an on-site 1.5 T MRI and a 4-slice helical CT with a contrast injector. Also, in the summer of 2013, a 9,000 square-foot facility directly across the street is scheduled to open with radiation oncology and veterinary rehabilitation specialties, and will house a linear accelerator.

In addition to working closely with the specialists and the ER doctors in a friendly and team-oriented atmosphere, the imaging service also has a strong radiographic and ultrasound referral base from local referring veterinarians. Candidates should be confident with strong interpersonal and communicative skills. A sense of humor is a plus!

Chicago winters are cold, but the summers are fantastic! There is an abundance of activities in the Chicagoland area, including museums, performing arts, sporting events, Lake Michigan, and some of the best food and restaurants in the country (just to name a few).

A generous compensation and benefit package commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience will be offered. If you are interested in joining a dynamic, fun and growing practice, please send a cover letter and CV with references to Dr. Jason Crawford (jasoncrawford@mac.com), or call 630-779-2085 (cell).
