VCSG provides many great benefits such as health and supplemental insurance, 401K options, CE and professional membership allowances, PTO, personal pet discounts, and relocation assistance. Chattanooga combines all the best aspects of living in a city and has immediate access to endless outdoor activities. Chattanooga continues to grow, but it will always have that small-town feel. Downtown offers a vibrant art scene, restaurants/bars/breweries, festivals, shopping, and more. We have many great public and private schools in the area and a plethora of activities to keep yourself or the family entertained. The city sits right on the Tennessee River with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Nashville, Knoxville, Birmingham, and Atlanta are all within a two-hour drive, and the airport offers direct service to other major airports. VCSG is in search of talented, hardworking, and motivated veterinarians in the areas of emergency, neurology, surgery, cardiology, and oncology. However, we are not limiting our search to Board Certified veterinarians. If you are interested in gaining experience that a busy private practice can offer, we will gladly welcome and consider fourth-year students, interns, and residents before they take their Boards. VCSG is pleased to offer externships to third-year and fourth-year students. If you want to work in a place where co-workers feel like family, and the staff is compassionate, dedicated, and hardworking, then VCSG is it! Our goal is to provide outstanding medical care for each family’s beloved pet. Check out our website www.VCSGvets.com to learn more about us.
