We’re Growing

We are seeking a highly productive and dynamic faculty member to join our ACVR-boarded faculty members and excellent technical staff.

We are seeking an ACVR-boarded faculty member. The successful candidate will deliver clinical service, and engage in teaching of department’s clinical year students and house officers. Additional opportunities for research and didactic teaching can be pursued, if interested.

The University of Illinois Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital is a full-service facility with newly equipped surgical suites and with fluoroscopic capabilities. Our caseload is robust with a solid referral base.
