Full Time ophthalmologist position at MSPCA/Angell, Waltham campus

Join our dynamic Angell West team!! We are looking for a full time ophthalmologist to join our Waltham practice, a 24-hour emergency and referral satellite hospital in the west suburbs of Boston, MA. This position provides a unique opportunity to practice in an intimate client-focused setting, but with numerous amenities from the larger Angell Animal Medical Center Boston hospital as support. We are a values based organization with a focus on client service, patient care, and life-work balance. We are looking for an individual who shares our values and is seeking a smaller hospital based setting.

The hospital is approximately 10,000 square feet, and has been newly renovated. It is equipped with 3 surgical suites, ultrasound, echocardiography, endoscopy, and telemetry. Digital radiography is available on-site in Waltham with read out of all films by the Boston diagnostic imaging staff, and bloodwork is sent to the fully equipped pathology lab in Boston twice daily (in addition to in-house Abaxis, NOVA, and Procyte machines). All necessary specialty equipment for ophthalmology appointments and surgery will be purchased with input from the candidate that fills this position. There have been frequent requests from our referral community for ophthalmology offerings at our Waltham location, and we have a busy emergency caseload which will also support an ophthalmology service.

Our collegial staff includes an emergency/critical care department (2 specialists, 9 intern trained emergency doctors), internal medicine (2 specialists), surgery (1 specialist), avian-exotics (1 specialist), cardiology (1 specialist), neurology (appointments offered one day/week), and behavior (appointments offered monthly). Angell Boston has a thriving ophthalmology service, currently consisting of 2 ophthalmologists. Numerous professional development offerings include weekly seminars, frequent lunch and learns, several hours of journal club, and didactic learning (primarily at our Boston practice).

Waltham is a small city located 11 miles from downtown Boston, and the practice is easy to reach from both Metrowest communities and those north and south of Boston. Boston is a world class city with easy access to beaches, oceanfront and the mountains, and it contains many cultural opportunities as well as famous Boston sports teams. Logan International Airport is a major airport allowing easy air travel. Angell has long enjoyed collaborative work with the nearby esteemed Longwood Medical Community (including the Harvard Medical School network of teaching hospitals).

We offer a competitive benefits package, compensation and a desirable work schedule. Interested parties please contact csumner@angell.org. Please apply on-line at mspca.org.
