The Department of Medical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Veterinary (SVM) invites applications for a Tenure Track, full-time, renewable Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor position within the Emergency and Critical Care Section of the UW Veterinary Care Hospital. The successful candidate will join the current team of three clinical track faculty who are responsible for teaching, research, and clinical service on the UW-Madison campus. The SVM is a collegial, collaborative environment that offers specialty care with board-certified experts in allied services including anesthesia and pain management, cardiology, dentistry and oral surgery, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, internal medicine, neurology, medical and radiation oncology, ophthalmology, anatomic and clinical pathology, primary care, special species, and soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.
The successful candidate will participate in the clinical activities of the teaching hospital, including the provision of patient care and instruction and supervision of veterinary students, interns, and residents. Availability and willingness to consult with referring veterinarians and clients, provide supervision of the emergency and critical care services, and collaborate with other services within the hospital are vitally important. Approximately 27,400 small animal patients are evaluated at UW Veterinary Care annually. The combined Emergency Medicine and Critical Care caseload exceeds 5,000 cases per year. In addition, the Critical Care service provides collaboration, consultation, and procedural support for critically ill patients hospitalized by other small animal specialties.
In addition to faculty members, the UW-Madison Emergency Medicine and Critical Care team includes 6 residents, 10 rotating interns, 20 certified veterinary technicians, 11 assistants, and 2 client care liaisons.
