New for 2018....additional training for new graduate and employed veterinary surgeons

In addition to the Business Academy, we are delighted to introduce our Creating Confidence and Competence programme, a four module portfolio of seminars, specifically designed to enable independent practices to compete with corporate business by providing a structured training series for newly qualified vets and employed veterinary surgeons of up to approximately 5 years in practice.

Available to all members as well as Business Academy participants the programme covers many of the key areas needed for vets to hone their skills and raise awareness of the business of practice and importance of communication. The series is once again subsidised to enable practices to fully benefit.
