Editor’s note: The following article was written from information presented at the 2015 AAEP Convention. This article is in addition to the feature in the Spring 2016 EquiManagement magazine and three other articles from that convention brought to you by Zoetis.
At the 61st AAEP Annual Convention, Amy Grice, VMD, MBA, reported on the findings from a survey of AAEP General Listserv members that was conducted in 2014.
The survey aimed to explore the perceptions that equine vets have regarding their work environment and uncover the most pressing concerns of vets with regard to their business and professional lives.
According to Grice, several broad themes emerged from the results of this survey: the importance of practice culture; the importance of control and choice; and the degree of stress due to poor work life balance in the profession.
