Job Description

Emergency doctor training position for new/recent graduates or experienced general practitioners.


Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine

North Haven, CT


Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine is proud to offer a training program for new/recent graduates or experienced general practitioners who are looking to become a skilled and experienced emergency veterinarian in a supportive and collaborative environment.

 This program is designed to provide an in depth and exciting training experience for new graduates looking for a career in emergency medicine or experienced general practitioners looking for a change in pace and to gain new skills.

 This program will provide you with the training, support, and experience you need to become a competent and proficient emergency veterinarian. The program will combine one on one mentoring, wet labs, didactic training, and hands-on practical experience. The program will also allow you to work alongside specialists, experienced emergency clinicians, and knowledgeable support staff while you grow your knowledge and skills.

 Program Structure

The program will be broken down into sections, with progressively more primary case responsibility as the program progresses. The first 6-8 weeks will be working alongside specialists, learning how the different services operate. The next 8-12 weeks will involve shadowing a daytime ER clinician on sick/unstable cases and taking primary case management of urgent care type cases with direct supervision. As the program progresses, the level of case management will increase until you are taking full primary case management of all cases presenting to the ER with the support of an experienced ER clinician as needed.

 There will be 4 weeks throughout the training year with primary case management of hospitalized cases and working alongside the critical care specialists.

 Additional opportunities for training throughout the year include daily case rounds with specialists, monthly learning rounds and journal club, wet labs/cadaver procedures, and RECOVER certification. There will also be didactic training and regular topic rounds.

 There is a 2 year commitment to Central following completion of the program, pending approval from the hospital. Based on experience level, the training timeframe may be condensed/shortened.

If elected, there will also be the opportunity to gain experience and further training in emergency/on-call surgical procedures including GDV, pyometra, splenectomy, foreign body surgery, etc. There may be the opportunity to join the on-call surgery team following the completion of the program, pending approval of the surgery team.

 Why Choose Central?

By joining the team at Central, you will have the opportunity to join a privately owned, multi-disciplinary referral and emergency group. Central prides itself on a commitment to collaborative care and practicing the highest quality of medicine. Central is a busy and fast-paced environment with a robust and varied caseload that will provide the opportunity for growth as an ER doctor. Central currently has two locations (Guilford and North Haven) and has numerous specialists on staff to help contribute to your training.

 Specialties at our hospital include internal medicine, emergency/critical care, ophthalmology, surgery, neurology, sports medicine/rehab, oncology, radiology, exotics, and cardiology, as well as a team of 12 emergency clinicians. 

 By the end of the program, you can expect to be comfortable with triaging and treating a variety of ER cases, leading and performing CPR, and performing a wide variety of ER procedures. You will also gain confidence in non-clinical skills such as client communication, case rounding, practicing evidence based medicine, and the ability to assemble an appropriate problem list, differential list, and treatment plan. There will also be the opportunity to participate in and complete RECOVER CPR certification.


  • Graduate of an accredited veterinary school
  • Currently hold or be able to obtain a CT veterinary license and DEA license


Compensation will increase based on level of experience, as you progress through the program. Salary will start at 50% of the salary of a full time ER doctor and will increase every 4 months until reaching the salary of a full time ER doctor by the end of the program.

 You will also be eligible for benefits including 401k, uniform allowance, paid vacation and CE time, health insurance, etc. Cost of licensure, DEA license, and professional dues will all be covered.
