Quick poll: Do you think most DVMs have devoted a good portion of their lives to the study and practice of veterinary medicine because of a) a deep desire to further the health and well-being of the animals they treat or b) a burning urge to pore over ROI reports and P&L statements? Probably the former, you say? The fact is that, like it or not, the science and business of veterinary medicine intersect in the clinic. Luckily, there are specialists out there who are just as passionate and knowledgeable about the business side of things as doctors are about the medical side.

Two big-time speakers on the theory of veterinary business will resent timely practice management seminars rife with the no-nonsense information you need to know in this questionable economic climate at CVC San Diego, Nov. 6 to 9. Karyn Gavzer, MBA, CVPM, and Dr. Christine Merle, MBA, CVPM, will address difficult subjects like hiring, firing, marketing and understanding future trends. Though the talks tackle tricky topics, Gavzer says hers offer inspiration: "It's tough out there. My talks offer a reason to hope that we can stay the course and get to a better place.”
