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!

It will also help those considering the next step in practice ownership a few years down the line.
