The Veterinary Practice Management Program (VPMP) provides 72 hours of instruction to help veterinary professionals manage the business side of their practices.
“Veterinarians and their staffs face an increasingly competitive business environment,” said Willie Reed, dean of veterinary medicine. “Changes range from new and expensive advances in surgical equipment and medical treatments to practice consolidations, and pet superstores. VPMP is designed to help them meet these challenges.”
The program is held at Purdue’s West Lafayette campus. Courses draw upon Krannert faculty and resources as well as guest faculty selected for their academic credentials and experience in management.
The course is divided into four modules: human resource management, accounting management, marketing, and strategic thinking. Participants follow the modules in order. This allows them to implement ideas in their practices as they move through the program and interact with faculty from previous modules to discuss the progress they are making.
