Grande Prairie Animal Hospital is looking for a DVM who loves veterinary medicine, values their client communication skills, and enjoys practicing team-based medicine. If you show up with a “can-do” attitude and a passion for gold standard medicine, we’ll set you up for success. For the right individual, we would absolutely consider buy-in too. This is the perfect opportunity to relocate to an affordable, vibrant, and growing city of over 63,000. Get ahead financially, and simultaneously enjoy countless Great Canadian outdoor activities.
Only 6% of hospitals in Canada are accredited by AAHA, and our Small Animal hospital is one of them. We celebrate best practices, and support each other unconditionally. Being an AAHA-Accredited practice means we are constantly striving to be better, with clear protocols and progressive culture. We are a resilient and close-knit team that prides itself on providing the best possible care to our pet patients, and we aren’t afraid to have FUN in the process. If you are looking for a progressive environment where each individual is heard, and recognized for their unique contributions, we'd love to talk.
Grande Prairie is a vibrant and growing northern community of over 63,000. Our city offers all the amenities, with the added bonus of a Great Canadian Outdoor playground on your doorstep. Grande Prairie is the hub of the Alberta and BC Peace Region, and provides quick access for outdoor enthusiasts to world-renowned hiking, fishing, kayaking, skiing, snowshoeing, and river boating. Snowmobilers enjoy the supreme winter-wonderland trails that become increasingly secluded as one travels west into the Rocky Mountains, and between the months of May and October these trails transform into superb ATV and mountain-biking paths. Explore Big Mountain Creek Provincial Park or Crystal Lake nearby, or escape for an adventurous weekend to the mountain town of Grande Cache, or Jasper National Park.
Grande Prairie boasts incredible value. Property and housing are readily available, and particularly affordable in comparison with the other 5 largest cities in Alberta. Grande Prairie is the type of place that allows you to live on an acreage and still be at work in 10 minutes! Residents of Grande Prairie can even claim 50% of the Northern living allowance on their taxes, and a healthy employment market makes the city attractive for family members too. A regional College, Hospital, Art Gallery, and the Eastlink Centre multi-sport facility are just a few amenities frequented by locals, with the Bear Creek Folk Festival and Grande Prairie Stampede drawing many from out-of-province.
Affordability, adventure, and all the amenities, without the traffic, pollution, or commute. Grande Prairie is calling…. to all experienced DVMs interested in moving their career forward.
