There’s a convergence of 21st century conditions that are challenging the old ways of veterinary practice. Veterinarians rely on support staff to enhance and improve the quality and delivery of veterinary medicine, but it’s increasingly difficult to attract and retain them. And now, corporate medicine is quickly changing the practice landscape and there are rumors afoot about unionizing. What’s a veterinary practice to do?
This forum is to help veterinarians and team members understand why it’s difficult to attract and keep technical staff, how corporate medicine may or may not affect entry and retention of the veterinary team, and what it means for the profession to unionize.
HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE’LL ADDRESS:
Why am I having trouble finding and keeping technical staff in my practice?
How is corporate medicine changing what it’s like to work in veterinary medicine? Does it have an impact on entry and retention into the profession?
There are whispers about unionizing the veterinary profession. What do we need to know as practice owners, hospital managers, and support staff?
What changes are needed to attract and retain a veterinary team so I can enjoy a thriving practice, regardless of whether my practice is private or corporate ?
