This list is not all-inclusive.  It is understood that many situations will require the ability to multitask, and to work together to accomplish our goals.  While we are small, we will all be responsible for any of the hospitals needs.  As the hospital and staff grow, a certain amount of flexibility is needed to make this the best place a person could work and the best place for animals to come in sickness and in health.  Please provide alternative solutions to smooth out the practice rough spots.
