Changing Dynamics of Private Practice

Veterinary private practice is rapidly changing. Corporate practice ownership is the new reality facing graduates as they prepare to enter the workforce and for those veterinarians that are planning an exit strategy. As client expectations and the level of veterinary care that the veterinary team provides to its patients continue to rise, so too does the stress that private practitioners feel as they try to meet these demands. Join us in Vancouver as the veterinary profession addresses these challenges and provides real strategies for dealing with these concerns.
