Course Focus and Learning Objectives

MightyVet: Changing the Culture of Veterinary Sacrifice is an open-enrollment, self-study course is based on the archive of a MightyVet webinar presented on December 18, 2018.

Veterinarians live in an “always-on” culture. Pet owners increasingly expect their veterinarian to be there when they need them, be that 6:00am or 11:00pm. And, those same clients expect the highest quality of care possible at the lowest possible price. To stay competitive, the pressure to be on call all hours of the day and to discount services to a level equal with the financial resources available to the pet owner is high. This leads to veterinarians working long hours for little pay and having a very lop-sided work/life balance. This webinar challenges this cultural norm and looks at practical ways to increase career satisfaction while maintaining a sustainable business.

Both the webinar and this archive course were made available to the veterinary community via the financial and administrative donation of VetMedTeam. We believe in the MightyVet initiative.

The webinar was the 7th in a series of free webinars addressing compassion fatigue, burnout, ethics exhaustion, decreased career satisfaction, and suicide. Unaddressed the outcome is often career and life threatening.

This course is based on the archive of the webinar and is appropriate for veterinarians, credentialed technicians, and practice team members, along with vet and tech school students.

Upon completion of this CE offering the participant will be able to discuss the impact of the current “always-on” culture on career satisfaction and personal well-being of veterinarians.
