Episode 57 – Addressing the Balance Between Profit and People in Veterinary Medicine with Matt Salois, PhD

Today you get to hear the numbers when it comes to recruitment, burnout, staff turnover and all things workplace wellbeing. Mr. Matthew Salois, PhD is an economist who is deeply involved with the people side of veterinary medicine. That might sound like a surprising mix, but Matt provides a valuable and deeply knowledgeable perspective for our veterinary industry.

Episode 56 – Finding Your Path In Veterinary Medicine by Staying True to You with Dr. Eve Harrison

In sharing her path from burned out surgical resident to thriving house call concierge vet, Dr. Eve Harrison highlights a fundamental truth – veterinary medicine can truly be whatever you make of it. We talk a lot about the logistics of screening clients as she describes the strict boundaries around her practice culture, but in doing so, we are given an opportunity to see the real life effects of being in the driver seat of your own life and career. There’s much to glean from this conversation, even if you aren’t a mobile veterinarian. And for my equine colleagues, listen up – we can definitely stand to take away a few pointers from this chat!

hey there!

I’m Dr. Stacey Cordivano

LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER

Fueled by equal parts coffee and passion, I spend my days managing horses who like to hurt themselves and kids who do about the same thing. 

I am a woman, wife, mother, equine vet and continual learner. I have realized that by focusing on my personal development, rather than just my professional CE, I have been able to get back to a place of happiness within veterinary medicine. I hope to share resources that will allow you to do the same thing.
