An informal poll of Associate DVMs recently found that the most anxiety-inducing conversation they could have with their boss was around buying into the practice. Most had considered it; few had done it. Have any of your Associates broached the topic with you? Have you floated it with them?
We recently authored an article for Veterinary Practice News about the whole situation (click here to read), and since then have heard from a number of Associates and Practice Owners alike that it served as a great “icebreaker” for that difficult conversation.
As the only group in the veterinary industry proactively helping younger associates buy-in to practices, learn how to be strong owners, and carry on the the legacies of their predecessors, VPP is an expert resource for figuring out a seamless, successful ownership transition between DVMs. If you find yourself in the position of considering a younger DVM as a future owner of your practice and would like to learn more about how we can help, shoot us a note, we’d love to chat!
