Top 5 Ways Vets Get Sued (& how to avoid this as a new graduate)

Join veterinary graduate mentoring expert and VetX program director Dr Dave Nicol as he spends an hour showing you the common ways vets get into hot water and how to avoid this altogether.

Dr Dave is joined by Veterinary Defense Society Claims Adviser Dr Kirsty Perry.

Unleash The Power Of The Next Vet Generation

Much of the evidence available around the veterinary world today suggests that we are failing to meet the needs of the next generation of vets as they enter the workforce. The result is a drain of talent away from general practice and an acute skills shortage when searching for experienced veterinary talent.

In this webinar, Dr Dave Nicol digs into the challenges that face practices as they try to get the balance right between managing successful practices and keeping the next generation of vets engaged. 

Five Terrible Hiring Mistakes Vets Make (& how to avoid them)

The price of a bad hire is probably the most underestimated cost in veterinary business. Conservative estimates from the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) suggest this cost to approx four times the base salary of the person concerned. So who you hire is likely to be one of the top determinants of success.

In this webinar, Dr Dave Nicol and HR guru Nancy Slessenger reveal the common errors made and give you some practical tips on how to immediately improve your hiring process.
