The Carrabassett Valley area of Maine is a last stronghold of good living in small town USA. We have recently renovated our clinic and are one of the only veterinary practices in the area which is actively growing. Currently we are companion animal only, but there is potential to add a large animal practice depending on the interest of our veterinarians.
Now we need you–one or two dedicated experienced professionals or new graduates keen on living and working in one of the most beautiful areas of Vacationland; with places to hike and bike, access to fishing, boating, hunting, snowmobile trails and a world-renowned ski resort and golf course. But, more than that, this is a wonderful place to live and grow a family.
Our new veterinarians will enjoy:
State-of-the-art Veterinary Clinic
Work with efficiency and ease in our thoughtfully planned facility, with digital imaging capabilities and modern lab facilities, all integrated into our cloud-based medical record.
Short- or long-term housing available: A brand new duplex with one- or two-bedroom private units and a newly renovated two bedroom apartment are located on our 5 acre property
We take pride in our work and believe in the potential of every team member. We encourage the exploration of advancement opportunities by empowering you to take ownership of your role on our team, focusing on individual strengths and supporting new ideas in a collaborative approach to our shared success. We also happily provide funding for ongoing education of CME and beyond.
And for new grads,
We’re confident that a mentorship by Dr. Benson, with 40+ years in practice, coupled with a fantastic support team in a fully modernized practice will provide a deep sense of fulfillment as well as professional and financial success.
