What Makes This School Unique?
|The VMC School of Veterinary Practice Management is taught by instructors
who have "been there, done that." They incorporate a practical approach to the material
rather than an exclusively academic point of view. Students learn specific systems and
procedures that have been effectively incorporated into thousands of veterinary practices.
Since the class size is small (less than 20), students develop relationships with their
instructors and their peers that will last a lifetime.
