We are interested in new graduate veterinarians or veterinarians who are seeking advanced training in Emergency and Critical Care. Train under the guidance of our specialists in the areas of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine, as well as Surgery, Anesthesiology, and Oncology. Additional rotations to supplement the interns' experience will include: Dermatology, Shelter medicine, Theriogenology, Ophthalmology, and Dentistry. Approximately half of the interns' time will be devoted to primary emergency case responsibility, however, there will be many educational opportunities including daily case rounds, didactic rounds, journal club, and ample CE hours offered throughout the year. Elective rotations in other areas of interest can also be arranged upon request.
The Animal Emergency and Specialty Center is a state-of-the-art facility that opened in 2009 and sees over 12,000 cases annually. We function as both a small animal emergency and critical care hospital and specialty referral center. Our ultra-modern facility provides a complete array of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment including mechanical ventilators, pulse oximetery, end tidal CO2 monitoring, Doppler blood pressure monitoring, Snyder O2 cage, digital radiography, fluoroscopy, two ultrasound units, rigid and flexible endoscopy, Axxent electronic brachytherapy radiation unit, 3 ORs, laparoscopic and orthopedic equipment, Thermofield hyperthermia system, chemotherapy pharmacy, chemotherapy biosafety hoods (2), video-microscopy, conference room, clinical research laboratory, GE light speed multi-slice helical CT scanner and off-site MRI capability. In addition we offer a full in-house laboratory with blood chemistry, blood gas and electrolyte, lactate, and coagulation testing.
We are home to a vibrant team that includes a medical oncologist, two criticalists, one whom is also board certified in anesthesiology, two surgeons, five emergency doctors and dedicated support staff. Our specialists are professors for the new College of Veterinary and Comparative Medicine at Lincoln Memorial University (LMU-CVCM), and our ER doctors teach the emergency curriculum for LMU's Veterinary Technology program.
The AESC is situated just outside the city of Knoxville; we are just an hour's drive away from the Smoky Mountains and minutes away from many of the numerous lakes in the area. Tennessee offers a multitude of outdoor activities including skiing and snowboarding, kayaking and white water rafting, fishing, and countless hiking and biking trails scatter the nearby Smoky Mountain National Park. We do not have state income tax and the cost of living is much lower than most areas of the country.
