What will this 3-day event cover?

Most veterinarians graduate from Veterinary school with minimal or no training on how to run a Veterinary practice/clinic and are left to acquire this knowledge elsewhere.  In today's competitive veterinary market it has become increasingly difficult to run a profitable veterinary business with just common sense and by 'winging it'.

This course was specifically developed for busy equine practitioners and practice managers who are aiming at streamlining their practice/clinic and at making it more profitable.  Attendees are not expected to have any pre-existing knowledge in the field of practice/clinic management and this course will provide readily applicable tools to increase your practice's bottom line as soon as you return home. 

The panel of speakers have all had long-standing involvements with the management of very successful equine practices/clinics and will present the material through a very practical approach based on personal experience as equine practitioners and practice managers.

The topic of finance & business strategies is approached by providing the attendees with the foundations of business management via a logical progression of interactive lectures, examples and case-discussions which are tailored to the specific needs of equine practitioners and practice managers.
