Contact Person: If you, or a resident or colleague you know may be interested, please fax your resume to Dr. Justine Johnson at (401) 886-7824 or call (401) 886-6787 or email jjohnson@osvs.net with questions.

Ocean State Veterinary Specialists (OSVS) is seeking a second board certified (or residency-trained) radiologist to join an already busy radiology service. The radiologist will work in both of our locations, in East Greenwich, RI and in Swansea, MA. The main hospital in RI has a full-time radiologist who performs between 10 and 20 ultrasound examinations a day, reads all of the radiographs for both hospitals, reads CT scans and some MRI scans, runs the radioactive iodine treatment program and reads radiographs for referring veterinarians via teleradiology. The radiologist also participates in the teaching of interns, residents, and student externs. The second radiologist will participate in these activities at OSVS, but will also be building the ultrasound and teleradiology practice in the Swansea, MA location. The right person must be someone who is comfortable meeting and developing relationships with referring veterinarians. We are considering adding fluoroscopy capabilities at OSVS, and an interest in Interventional Radiography may be useful.

Both hospitals have Toshiba Xario ultrasound units and digital radiography. The main hospital (OSVS) has a CT scanner and a mobile MRI unit that never leaves the premises. The hospital is approximately 17,000 square feet including a large ICU, a treatment area, two surgery suites, 11 exam rooms, an oncology center and ample office space. The staff includes specialists in internal medicine, critical care, surgery, radiology, ophthalmology, oncology, neurology, and avian/exotics. There are residents in both Emergency/Critical Care as well as Surgery, and a well-established internship program with six interns per year. The emergency service is staffed by approximately twelve experienced, internship-trained clinicians and the technicians are highly trained in emergency and critical care nursing. Bay State Veterinary Emergency Services (BSVES) is a new, 7000 sq. ft. building with a large intensive care unit, emergency treatment room, special procedures room, and surgery suite.

The two practices are located right in the heart of beautiful New England, with extensive ocean beaches, a growing and vibrant city (Providence), and a diverse landscape to match anyone’s interests. They are separated by an easy, 25 minute drive. Ocean State Veterinary Specialists has a reputation for high quality medicine and a positive and fun working environment.

This position is a unique opportunity for someone who wants the efficiency, independence, and support of a private practice position with the teaching opportunities, interaction with multiple specialists, and advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options most typical of a university. We offer a generous compensation package with production-based bonus potential and excellent benefits including a 401K program. If you, or a resident or colleague you know may be interested, please fax your resume to Dr. Justine Johnson at (401) 886-7824 or call (401) 886-6787 or email jjohnson@osvs.net with questions. We hope you will consider joining our family!
