About Medical Directors at MedVet:

The MD promotes a culture that supports development of engaged and empowered employees, who deliver the MedVet Experience in a healthy and sustainable manner while living MedVet’s core values of Teamwork, Leadership and Compassion.                         
The MD partners with their dyad HD to improve and sustain MedVet’s focus on evaluating, planning, and implementing the delivery of best-in-class healthcare to MedVet patients in support of our mission – Leading Specialty Healthcare for Pets.

Caregivers working at MedVet Atlanta will be able to enjoy all that the central delight of the Peach State has to offer.

The city contains three major high-rise districts, which form a north–south axis along Peachtree Road: Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead. Surrounding these high-density districts are leafy, low-density neighborhoods, most of which are dominated by single-family homes.              
A city full of history and art, Atlanta contains world class museums such as the High Museum of Art and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. Sit amongst thousands of fans cheering on the NBA and NFL home teams: the Atlanta Falcons and the Atlanta Hawks.
