One of the biggest things I looked for during my job hunt, was strong mentorship. I’ve heard so many different stories from veterinarians about their first jobs after school and a lot of these stories are ones I never want to experience. This is why I think a lot of veterinary students will be seeking and continue to seek mentorship as one of their biggest priorities when looking for a job, even taking precedent over salary.
I am extremely grateful to have externed with multiple doctors that believe in the importance of mentorship for the veterinarians at their practice. I’m even more grateful that these doctors are my future bosses now. I know many others will get out in practice and realize that they aren’t getting as much mentorship as they expected or hoped. But what if I told you that there’s a new online, interactive resource that exists for small animal veterinarians. Yes, that’s right. The VMS program seeks to provide a solution for all new graduates who are seeking mentorship. This program focuses on video-based mentoring that focuses on problem identification, building differential lists, diagnostic interpretation, treatment plans, client communication, and so much more.
I’ve already utilized this program to aid in different cases I’ve seen in the clinics and I know that this will be a useful tool for any and all new graduates that plan to work with small animals. This program is the first of it’s kind and also uses visual aids to help teach new veterinarians.
