Registered Veterinary Technologist - Deadline - Jan 30/19
The Vancouver Animal Emergency and Referral Centre is an established, cutting edge, multi-disciplinary facility located in metropolitan Vancouver. Our emergency/critical care service is seeking enthusiastic, highly motivated Registered Veterinary Technologists (RVTs) to join our ever growing team!

The Registered Veterinary Technologists at our hospital have an interesting and varied workload. They are heavily relied upon by the emergency team veterinarians and specialists to manage hospitalized patients while also being responsible for facilitating outpatient care and triage. Managing a wide variety of hospitalized cases is both stimulating and challenging while providing great personal and professional satisfaction. This means that in addition to utilizing basic technical skills you will also apply skills not commonly used in general practice. This includes: Trauma patient and critical care nursing, transfusion medicine (blood typing, cross-matching, administration of blood products), maintaining a variety of infusions via state-of-the-art equipment, utilizing balanced analgesic approaches for pain management, performing advanced technical procedures (nasogastric tube, central line, arterial catheter placement and more) and obtaining radiographs using hands free imaging techniques!

Although previous experience in an emergency setting is an asset, it is not a requirement. Ideal candidates are experienced RVTs who have a desire to continue to improve their technical skills and are eager to learn new ones. Recent RVT graduates who are ambitious and confident in their abilities, or who possess above average technical experiences, are also encouraged to apply.

This is a unique opportunity for an RVT who is interested in pursuing a VTS in Emergency and Critical Care. As part of our ER team, we have two Veterinary Technologists with their VTS in emergency and critical care, and our Veterinary Technologist Team Lead is an experienced VTS in anesthesia/analgesia, providing both mentorship and technical support to all services in our hospital.

If you think this position is of interest but you are unsure if emergency medicine is for you, we can arrange for you to spend some time with our RVTs in order to help you decide!

Benefits include: Extended medical, dental, A.D.D and life insurance, uniforms and discounted pet Care, BCVTA membership dues, continuing education, wellness days and sick leave. The RVTs in the critical care/emergency service generally work four ten hour shifts per week on a 24 hour rotation.

Agribusiness, class of 2014, former Miss Rodeo Canada.

What Alumni Say
I feel the professors at Lakeland actually prepared me for the profession. It’s impossible to be just a number here when there are 12 students in all of your classes. When the school advertised small class sizes, they actually meant it.

What Alumni Say
I was involved in the president’s gala in April where I was an emcee for the evening, it was a great experience, and I had a lot of fun doing it and would recommend it to everyone.”

– Lucas Tetreault

HOPE Power Engineering, Class of 2017.

What Alumni Say
I would recommend Lakeland College for the simple fact that it's for everybody. As a mature student who went back to school much later than his 18th year, I was immediately accepted, and not ostracized in the least

– Donald James Shaw

Accounting Major, Class of 2016.

What Alumni Say
All the hands-on learning was great and very helpful once placed into the industry. Having clients leave with a smile after each service assured me that I was in the right field of work. I would recommend Lakeland to anyone.

Esthetician, Class of 2016.

What Alumni Say
The professors care so much about their students at Lakeland and are able to know each and every one of them by name, so much so that they are able to nominate a ton of students for awards.

University Transfer, Class of 2016.

What Alumni Say
They really put you in the lead at Lakeland. Lakeland cares about its students, empowers them, and gives them opportunities to achieve their goals. I don’t see Lakeland as a stepping stone or a first step – I see it as a bridge and an integral part of my education.

– Alyssa Wells

University Transfer, Class of 2017.

What Alumni Say
I wanted to get experience in the field of assessment as it would give me exposure to what it’s like day to day. It was an invaluable experience as I find it hard to imagine what it would be like working in a particular field or area until I’m doing the work.

In the campus spa, they give you time to work with each client so nothing is rushed and you’re able to concentrate on providing the best service you can to your client.

– Daphney Couturier

Esthetician, Class of 2017.

What Alumni Say
It’s going to be a lot easier to start our first jobs having this experience and having been able to build our confidence in the campus spa. I love that we get to have this opportunity.

– Darby Watchel

Esthetician, Class of 2017.

Lakeland is a great place to find employees. The college provides real world training that equips soon-to-be employees with knowledge and people skills that are highly sought after in the agriculture industry these days.
