Part time Anesthesia Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs) needed!  

The Anesthesia department within the Companion Animal clinic (Ontario Veterinary College Health Sciences Centre) is looking to hire part-time RVTs to join our Anesthesia team!

Come join an amazing team for flexible, part-time work. Ideal candidates will have quality anesthesia experience, ideally in a specialty/referral setting, and have knowledge of multi-modal analgesia and anesthetic drugs, as well as strong intubation skills, and pre-, intra-, and post-operative monitoring of anesthetized patients. This is an amazing opportunity for RVTs that are looking to specialize in Anesthesia, as a way to gain valuable experience! We have board certified Anesthesiologists, residents, VTS (Anesthesia and Analgesia) and RVTs to work with on some really challenging cases.  In addition to patient care, RVTs also play a significant role in working with our veterinary students.

 

Our new Anesthesia and Surgery facility is state-of-the-art!  We have a very challenging and dynamic anesthesia caseload that services all of our primary services (Medicine, Surgery, Cardiology, Ophthalmology, Oncology, Neurology), as well as Emergency and Critical Care cases. Anesthesia is performed for radiation therapy, diagnostic imaging (CT/MRI/radiographs), endoscopy, minimally invasive and traditional surgery, and minor procedures. On a daily basis, the Anesthesia RVT provides technical support, creates anesthetic protocols, induces, monitors, maintains and recovers anesthetized patients.

Minimum qualifications: 

·         Minimum 3 years of experience as a RVT, with prior experience in Anesthesia.

·         Proficient in calculations (drugs, CR, unit conversions, etc.).

·         Flexibility in work schedule.

·         Excellent communication and organization skills particularly with working in a fast-paced hospital.

·         Ability to work with and contribute to a collaborative team environment.

Our anesthesia technical service currently works Monday to Friday (Hours of 8am-6pm).  However, may work a variety of shifts and/or flexibility in scheduling availability is required.  Our ideal candidate will have availability initially of 2-3 days a week (Monday to Friday) in order to train. The training period will depend on the initial qualifications of the chosen candidate and how quickly skills are learned. After training, shifts will be available as requested off by our full-time staff, and could be 0-24 hours per week based on the candidate’s availability.

Please apply by emailing ovchschr@uoguelph.ca with your application.
