My name is Tim Mainland; I'm here to help, joined by my partners, who blog as The Professionals.

Forums, Twitter, Facebook – the choice is yours

Vet In Practice (VIP) is a site that exists to support and mentor veterinary surgeons from new grads to experienced practitioners. While my partners and I are pleased to help with any business and practice issues you face, we warmly encourage other practitioners to contribute or offer their own insight into today's veterinary issues.

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the VIP forums here. Welcome! I'm very pleased to meet you.

And finally a few words from Liz Mossop -

Starting out in practice is an exciting part of a veterinary career - but it can also be stressful. The complexities of entering the workplace often throw up some tricky questions! Vet in Practice will help young vets find out information they need from a network of other new grads and more experienced members of the profession. It will also help those considering the next step in practice ownership a few years down the line.
