VMC HR Boot Camp
Get the Human Resources Skills Your Clinic Needs
The top challenge of any flourishing veterinary practice is human resources. Your practice will not succeed without an effective, well-trained, and fully engaged team. Even if you currently aren't quite sure what HR is all about, this lively two-day program will enable you to walk out with the knowledge and resources of an HR manager superstar.
Our HR Boot Camp focuses on all the fundamentals of managing people:
- Recruiting, hiring, training, developing, and retaining team members.
- Benefits and compensation.
- Policies and procedures (including the dreaded employee manual).
- Personnel issue resolution.
- Legal requirements and regulations.

"I have been the owner of a practice for 26 years and I kept up to date in all relevant aspects of veterinary medicine but I ran the business the same way since the day I opened. I loved practicing medicine but I dreaded running the practice. I decided to devote the same energy to practice management that I did professionally and I attended VMC HR Boot Camp. I learned so much those two days and along with the resources given, I have instituted a formal quarterly review, tied production to wages, incentivized the staff and we are all working harder, making more money and enjoying all aspects of our jobs. Thank you VMC!"
