Veterinary leaders are busy people. To lead successful businesses, we must stay current and competent in topics related to medicine, business and management. There is often little time or energy left for developing ourselves in the area of leadership. Regardless, it’s important to allocate time to this area because our ability to lead effectively is critical to our ability to achieve our personal and professional goals. The purpose of The Veterinary Leadership Bootcamp is to provide leadership education in an engaging environment where discussions are practical, focused and impactful.  Four leadership workshops are available. Each workshop is available as a one day, six-hour on-site event OR as one hour/week, six-week virtual sessions.
