Why are veterinarians unhappy?


May 18, 2021
12:00 PM until 1:00 PM


Veterinarians are probably some of the most passionate and dedicated professionals. Most of them knew what they wanted to do since childhood and meticulously planned out the steps towards the ultimate goal — helping animals. So why, after almost a decade of targeted professional education and training, would only one-third of veterinarians recommend a career in animal healthcare, and 40% are considering leaving the profession? Why are so many veterinarians burned out and what can leadership do about it?

Join our live webinar in the Leading With Purpose series: Why are veterinarians unhappy? on May 18, at 12 p.m. EST.

We’ll talk about the generational shift and whether millennial veterinary professionals are different to motivate, how to set goals that create a sense of belonging, and how to build thriving teams and reduce employee turnover with the application of positive psychology. Join VIS CEO Dr. Ivan Zak in a conversation with industry experts:

- Josh Vaisman, CCFP, MAPPCP, Co-Founder of Flourish Veterinary Consulting, a positive psychology practitioner and a positive leadership and culture consultant.
- Nicholas Nelson, DVM, MBA, Chief Operating Officer at BluePearl Specialty + Emergency Pet Hospital, a family of over 100 pet hospitals across the U.S.
