CVMA Summit

The CVMA Summit is an annual forum where Canadian and international veterinary leaders share information on key issues in veterinary medicine. Discussions that take place during the Summit have proven to be invaluable in exploring and adopting common approaches to the challenges our profession faces. All CVMA Convention delegates are eligible to attend this event, which is hosted annually during the CVMA Convention.

2018 CVMA SUMMIT: 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.
