Associate Veterinarian for Exotics Only Hospital (Signing Bonus)

Posted on October 9, 2019

San Francisco, CA

Bay Area Bird Hospital is an exclusively exotics practice located in San Francisco, CA.  We’ve been located in the outer sunset/parkside area since 1989 and provide care for birds, rabbits, rodents and reptiles.  While birds have always been the foundation of our practice, exotic companion mammals are increasing in popularity…and thus in frequency.

You do not need extensive exotic experience – Drs. Dustin and Marcucci are both Avian ABVP diplomats and are willing to train. Newer graduates will be considered.  However, experience with dogs and cats (or other mammals) provides a good base to launch into exotics.

Exam times are usually 30 minutes (with 15 minute rechecks) and we set aside a 3 hour block for procedures in the middle of the day during the week.  The practice is open 6 days a week – appointments are from 9-6 pm on weekdays and 10-3 pm on Saturdays.

The position is currently part-time (3 days a week) but there may be room to expand in the future.  Initial training or “ramp up to release” will depend on experience level with exotics.

Do you have a special interest you’d like to bring to the practice?  Are you considering becoming board certified?  BABH is always working to stay current and welcomes new skills and ideas.

To apply for this position contact Dr. Marcucci at babybird@bayareabirdhospital.com
