Emergency & Hospital Care Vets

Join the SASH family - led by vets, loved by vets

Whether you are looking for a full time, part time, or a casual role in emergency medicine, SASH is the leader and employer of choice for emergency vets.

SASH prides itself on its multidisciplinary approach to veterinary care, and this is no different for our Emergency & Critical Care department. At each of the SASH hospitals, you will have the opportunity to work alongside at least one residency trained critical care vet. In fact, SASH is home to the largest team of Criticalists in the country! Additionally, you will be supported by specialists from other departments including Internal Medicine, Surgery, and more.

Regardless of location, each SASH Emergency & Critical Care department was custom-built no earlier than 2017. With continued investments into facilities and equipment, you can be confident that you will always have access to everything you need to provide high quality care.

Hospital Care will teach you all you need to know about working in an emergency and referral hospital, while easing you into SASH processes and systems. The Hospital Care service sees lower acuity cases, with support from a large team of experienced SASH vets and specialists, all of whom can provide excellent learning opportunities.
