VES Hospital is looking for an Oncology specialist

VES Hospital is the first and only dedicated multidisciplinary specialty / referral hospital combined with a 24/7 emergency care in Singapore.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented Oncology specialist to join our existing and growing team. Delivering expert patient and client care, compassion, collaborative approach and great communication with the referring veterinarian community are fundamental to our vision. To enhance our collaborative relationship with the referring veterinary community, we do not offer general practice services.

You will be working as part of a multidisciplinary team that includes specialists in Diagnostic Imaging, Surgery, Anaesthesiology, Internal Medicine, Neurology and referral clinicians in Ophthalmology and Emergency and Critical Care.

Equipment in our 9,000sqft facilities includes digital radiography, ultrasound, echocardiography, C-arm, rigid and flexible endoscopy, in-house laboratory, dedicated ICU and critical care monitoring, GE 32 slices CT scan and very soon MRI.

Singapore is a wonderful place to live in. Safe, very modern, cosmopolitan in the heart of South-East Asia, it allows escapes for beach and nature lovers even for a weekend (think Thailand, Bali…). English is the most spoken official language. It is truly an amazing and easy place to settle in, allowing excellent work-life integration.

We will be offering a competitive salary, generous holidays package, health insurance cover and CPD allowance.

Candidates must be board-certified (ECVIM, ACVIM or FANZCVS) or residency trained (and eligible to sit for board examination).
