Extended Veterinary Contracts

Finding the veterinary specialists you need to grow and preserve your veterinary organization has never been more challenging. As a complement to our top-quality, quick-response Locom Tenans service our ability to arrange extended placements in which we place a single veterinarian with your organization for a year or longer taps into an underutilized pool of veterinarians. Take advantage of residents entering their 2nd or third year, for example, or veterinarians who would like to work another year or two before retiring without the long-term commitment of owning or managing a practice.

Continuity of care and strong referral networks

Your patients will appreciate seeing the same veterinarian over the course of a year. Continuity of care, as you know, can have a huge impact on patient satisfaction, particularly when it involves managing chronic conditions, mental health problems, and obstetric and prenatal care.

Your referring physicians will also appreciate establishing a rapport with specialists to whom they refer patients. CVS Extended Placements give permanent and interim veterinarians the opportunity to know and trust each other.

A boost to your recruiting
Experience shows that it is easier to recruit to a well-running, successful practice than a short-staffed group. Extended Placements can ease the pressure of veterinary staffing issues as you find just the right candidate.

A chance to test the fit
You may also want to consider using Extended Placements to test the fit of a specific candidate in a specific job to avoid the frustration and expense of recruiting a veterinary specialist who is not a great long-term fit.

Simplified administration
CVS Extended Placements require minimal start up. We work closely with each veterinarian to complete your credentialing requirements, fill out your forms correctly, and gather all necessary documentation.

Predictable overall costs
Extended Placements can also result in more predictable overall costs when compared to permanent recruitment or traditional short-term locum tenens. Extended placements can be arranged with an all-inclusive pricing model covering housing, transportation, professional liability insurance, and physician compensation.
