About the Book
Coauthored with M. Duffy Jones, DVM
So you're a practicing veterinarian, with a mind filled with the science of veterinary medicine. But there's a business side to veterinary medicine you were not taught in school, and it is relevant at every stage of your career.
Just starting out? This book is essential to transitioning from your training to "the real world." It offers practical advice on crossing that bridge, including key ways to establish good citizenship in your new environment and guidance for building your own practice. Do you know how to manage and plan your finances and think about the future? Have you chosen the right practice model for you and your family? This book will help you answer these and other questions and establish good habits that will benefit your entire career.
But this is by no means a "newbie manual." It gives a masters-level education on the business side of things that affect every practicing vet, new blood and veteran alike: accounting and corporate finance, business law, operations management, business communication, organizational behavior, strategy, and much more. Not to mention guidance on career longevity, planning for retirement, and increasing your net worth. This book truly is a business manual for your entire career in veterinary medicine.
