A little bit about us:

VSC is a privately-owned specialty and emergency hospital that has over 300 employees at our main location, which is about 40 minutes just outside of Chicago in Buffalo Grove. We are extremely collaborative and foster a very active learning environment for our staff, residents, interns and externs. We are also the first veterinary hospital in the U.S. to become a Certified B Corporation, which means we have taken great strides to put our employees, community and environment first and use them to guide our trajectory. Our specialties include surgery, rehabilitation and integrative medicine, internal medicine, emergency and critical care, anesthesia and pain management, neurology, radiology, oncology (medical and radiation), cardiology, dermatology, nephrology and clinical pathology.

Top reasons why you should consider a career in the Midwest:

  • Chicago is a big city with a lot of really fund things to do (museums, parks, restaurants, zoos, aquarium, shopping, concerts, volunteering, tours, etc.)
  • Lots of breathing room if that's your vibe (parks, beaches, forests, camping, suburbs, and plenty of space for dogs, chickens, goats, etc.)
  • We're community-oriented and healthier for it (a University of Cambridge 2013 study assessed the personality traits of more than 1.5 million people and found that the personalities of Midwesterners had "moderately high levels of extraversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness." So come on over, let’s be friends!)
  • The midwest is less stressed (in 2020, WalletHub released data on the most and least stressed states with the midwest leading as the least stressed. Laidback lifestyles, affordability, sense of community—these could all be factors in the relatively low level of stress for Midwesterners.)
  • We have not one, but two international airports (whether you need to quickly and easily visit friends, family or an exotic locale for a little rest and relaxation, we've got you covered.)

Since we just checked all your wish list boxes, what are you waiting for? Apply today and join our incredible team!


  • Internship-trained preferred or at least 3 years of emergency experience
