Changing the Culture of Veterinary Sacrifice
Tuesday, December 18, 2018 | 11:00am PST / 2:00pm EST
Register for the next webinar in the MightyVet series, presented by Dr. Bob Lester, DVM and Dr. Jennifer Bruns, DVM, MPVM of WellHaven Pet Health.
Veterinarians live in an “always-on” culture. Pet owners increasingly expect their veterinarian to be there when they need them, be that 6:00am or 11:00pm. And, those same clients expect the highest quality of care possible at the lowest possible price. In order to stay competitive, the pressure to be constantly on call and discount services is high. Consequently, veterinarians work long hours for little pay and have a very lop-sided work/life balance.
In this webinar, Dr. Lester and Dr. Bruns will challenge this cultural norm, look at practical ways to increase career satisfaction while maintaining a sustainable business, and explore the question: “Is it time to put vets before pets?”
This webinar is submitted for one RACE credits for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
Most veterinary professional graduates are prepared to enter practice with the medical background necessary to treat animals with the highest level of care possible. But mandatory curriculum is missing key components that would prepare students for the other realities of practice – from burnout to how to run a business to dealing with economic (or convenience) euthanasia.
Our vision is to help educate veterinarians, students, techs, and anyone who surrounds them about the challenges and opportunities faced by those drawn to be a part of the most compassionate and trusted profession in the world. We do this through an industry-wide platform to support veterinary professionals in their career and wellbeing. We offer always free continuing education courses, mentorship programs, and resources to address these topics so veterinary professionals are informed of, and prepared for, reality.
