Part time ER/ICU RVTs needed! 

The Intensive Care Unit at the Ontario Veterinary College Health Sciences Centre is hiring qualified RVTs!! Come join an amazing team for flexible, part-time work, in our new, state-of-the-art ICU facility.  RVTs in this area also intake our emergencies.  Ideal candidates will have ER or ICU experience, and have awesome IV catheterization, blood collection, ability to work in a fast-paced, intense environment, thirst for knowledge, and super critical thinking skills! The job is of course so much more than that, but training will be provided.  This is an amazing opportunity for RVTs that are looking to specialize in Emergency and Critical Care, as we have the perfect cases and opportunities for skill development. We have board certified Emergency and Critical Care Specialists (and many other specialties), amazing ECC residents, and a great crew of interns, VTS(ECC) and RVTs to work with on some amazing cases.  To be considered, applicants must be RVTs in good standing, and preferably have a minimum of 1-year of emergency and/or critical care experience.

We have a thriving tertiary emergency service (referrals) as well as some primary emergencies.  Our ICU has a very challenging and dynamic caseload that services all of our primary services (Medicine, Surgery, Cardiology, Ophthalmology, Oncology, Neurology/Neurosurgery), as well as primary Emergency and Critical Care cases.

Scheduling is flexible around your primary job and availability, but the ideal candidates will be willing to work some days, but mostly nights and/or weekends, 12-hour shifts.  Currently looking for vacation coverage, however there are some regular shifts each month that need to be picked up.  We would like to expand our part-time pool to provide more flexibility and time off for our full-time staff. Typically, part-time RVTs can anticipate 2-8 (max) shifts per month, depending on your availability and time-off requests from full-time staff, although there is never a guarantee we will have shifts available each month. The applicant will ideally be available on a few weekdays for initial training, followed by scheduling of additional training shifts based on your availability.  A current rabies titre is required.

Please apply by emailing your cover letter, resume, availability and indicate ICU as your area of interest, to
