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.


Developing a top-quality team can be expensive, time-consuming, and frustrating. Here is your opportunity to make it cost-effective and creative instead. We'll teach you how to achieve your HR goals, gain insight about real-world situations, and find practical solutions. Learn the secrets to retaining valued team members, and create a workplace culture that's positive and productive, making your practice the clinic of choice.
