VCA Halfmoon Bay located in Half Moon Bay, California, is looking for an Associate Veterinarian who enjoys practicing advanced medicine with a cohesive, tenured team.
We are a four vet practice, located in Half Moon Bay (south of San Francisco and west of San Mateo). We are a reverse commute for many. The hospital is spacious, with lots of natural light, and recently remodeled, with four exam rooms, isolation unit, comfort room, surgical and radiology suites. We have digital radiography (including dental) and ultrasound.
We are open six days a week (Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Saturday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm) with no on-call hours.
Our hospital is a lunch-break walk from the ocean and in the middle of an adorable downtown area with shops and restaurants. We are uniquely situated in a semi-rural locality but with ready access to both San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Ironically, our housing is more affordable than in other parts of the San Francisco Peninsula. Our region is known for lovely trails to bike or walk among redwood groves or along the seashore, with skiing and other outdoor opportunities just a few hour's drive away. We have a huge client base, in an affluent but very down-to-earth area. Our community is a mix of families, Techies from Silicon Valley, and surfers.
At VCA we are committed to equity, inclusion, and diversity, and strive to be a place where a talented mix of people want to come, stay, and do their best work.
As a member of the VCA family, eligible full-time employees will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package, including:
Health & Well-being
Innovative associate health and well-being department (Headspace app subscriptions, Vault financial wellness tool, and access to additional mental health resources)
