If you are looking to practice high-quality medicine in a general practice setting, this is the place for you. Kingsbrook Animal Hospital is looking to add an exceptional veterinary technician to our recently renovated and expanded, 8 doctor, 14 licensed technician, small animal/exotic, AAHA, privately owned hospital in Frederick, MD.
Kingsbrook Animal Hospital has cool equipment and practices great medicine and surgery. We have also developed a successful mentoring program—but anyone can do those things. What really sets us apart from other veterinary hospitals is our people. Our staff and clients are great! We have invested heavily in the development of our staff and they are integral to our success of the last 22 years. Check out our Google and Yelp Reviews--they are all about our people. If you have not looked at our website, be sure to watch our video and hear what people say about our highly leveraged and motivated staff. Our clients are wonderful and they seek us out because they want the best for their pets. Many drive great distances (past many other veterinarians) to come to our hospital.
Kingsbrook Animal Hospital is very involved in improving our community. Our website has information on our Vet Academy for students ages 9-13, our benevolent fund for animals with no one to care for them called the Kylie and Cricket Memorial Fund, Santa Paws Pictures, Frederick Pride participants, our Haunted Hospital, etc.
We consider ourselves very good mentors. We have established a structured mentoring program which has been successful in helping new graduates and even experienced technicians polish their skills and develop the confidence needed for personal wellbeing and career advancement. Other benefits including Health, Life and Disability Insurance; 401 K Retirement Plan; Continuing Education, Licensing, and Memberships/Dues.
Nationally, we are one of the prestigious Well-Managed Practices, recognized for our excellence in business and team management. You will frequently see our doctors quoted and our hospital cited in the Well Managed Practice Benchmarks Studies.
In addition to attending national meetings, we conduct extensive in-hospital educational programs for our full staff. We regularly close our hospital and host a variety of instructors to develop our team to help them be the best they can be. For example: Dr. Jane Shaw, Associate Professor of Veterinary Communication of Colorado State University and an expert in veterinarian-client-patient interactions regularly visits our hospital to develop our staff’s communication skills. Dr. Cindy Charlier AVDC, of Veterinary Dental Education regularly visits to expand our dentistry skills. Other guests in recent years have included Ken Martin, ACVB, for Fear Fear techniques, Rebecca Johnson, DACVAA, to help us advance the tailoring of anesthetic protocols for each patient, and Andy Roark of the Uncharted Veterinary Conference to help our team develop their ability to work together as a team that actually enjoys their jobs.
You must have a sense of humor--or at least a good smile! You must be able to say, "Good Morning" and mean it. It does not hurt if you are smart as well!
We are only 45 minutes from Washington DC and an easy drive to the beach or the mountains. Frederick has a cool downtown with unique shops and trendy restaurants (for example: Volt, The Tasting Room and the Black Hog) as well as classics (The Dutch’s Daughter--best crab cakes anywhere!).
We look forward to not only helping you become the best veterinarian you can be, but also learning from you!
