The business of veterinary medicine has evolved over the past few decades. With the pandemic, the increase in technology, and more, the veterinary industry has begun to pivot —and with that, the schools are making changes in how they’re teaching students. So, how has the business of veterinary medicine developed, and what could this mean for the future of veterinary care? Joining us to discuss these topics and more are Donna Harris, Assistant Professor at Michigan State University, and Peter Weinstein, President of Simple Solutions for Vets.
Listen in as Donna explains why veterinary schools are no longer training students to be owners of businesses, but rather to be associates first. Peter also breaks down some information on understanding the business side of veterinary care, and both describe their belief in the importance of evolution for the forward progression of the profession. You’ll learn tips on how to make veterinary care more accessible and why we can’t all be a jack-of-all-trades.
