An Introduction to Season 4

Welcome to Season 4 of The Whole Veterinarian Podcast! I hope you are having a wonderful start to the year.  I am excited to get back to releasing episodes on February 3, 2022 after a much needed holiday break.

This season will focus on equine veterinarians for the next couple of months. We face unique challenges in veterinary medicine and I want to highlight some of the voices working to make a difference in our space.

Also, I want to let you know that The Sustainability in Equine Practice Seminar & Retreat is back! After a hugely successful event in 2021, we are excited to gather again in Charlotte, North Carolina on March 24-27th. Please see the website for more info and to register. Come join us!

Hey there, it’s Dr. Stacey Cordivano. I want veterinarians to learn to be happier, healthier, wealthier and more grateful for the life that we’ve created. On this podcast, I will speak with outside of the box thinkers to hear new ideas on ways to improve our day to day life. Welcome to the whole veterinarian.

Hey there, Stacey here, I just wanted to let you know that a new season of the whole veterinarian podcast is coming soon. This one will be a little bit different. I’m going to focus on equine veterinarians in our industry. It’s obviously what I know best. We have a bit of a crisis going on in our vet med world with retention and attraction of new equine veterinarians out of school. So I want to take this time to really focus on equine practice. If you’re not an equine vet, there are 50 previous episodes in the past three seasons to check out they cover a wide range of topics, but they’re all hopefully beneficial to you in your personal life. And if you know an equine vet, please send them this way to check out the new episodes coming out next month for me. We are going to hear a lot of stories. We’re going to talk about generational differences. It’s going to be really good, it’s going to be pretty raw, and I really hope it’s going to open up more conversation for the future.

I also wanted to let you know that the Sustainability in Equine Practice Seminar is back! It’s going to be held on March 24 through 27th in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event that we held in October of this past year was amazing. We gathered 30 equine veterinarians together who wanted to learn and wanted to share new ideas and ways to make practice doable for the foreseeable future. We really have to start thinking creatively if we want equine medicine to be a sustainable career. And that is what the seminar is all about. So we encourage you to join us. If you’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed, if you’re on the verge of leaving, we want you there, we want to hear you we want to support you, we want to form a community with you. And if you are rocking it in equine practice, we also want you there because we want you to share your ideas on what’s working well for you. So please check out the website. It’s I will make sure to put that in the show notes as well.

As always, thank you so much for listening. The first full episode of season four will air on February 3. So stay tuned. I hope that you’re able to focus on finding some small moments of joy in the next few weeks rather than the craziness going on in the rest of the world. If you like this show, please share it with a friend. Let them know that there are new episodes coming soon or let them know about your most favorite previous episode.

And also, if you could head over to Apple podcasts and leave a review, I would so appreciate it. It helps other people to find the show and it gives me a huge motivation boost when I see what you are thinking about the things that I’m putting out there.

Finally, please follow me @thewholeveterinarian on Instagram. Send me a DM there if you have anything to suggest or comments or ideas for the future. And then you can also sign up for the whole veterinarian monthly newsletter at which has recently been revamped. So please go check that out. It’s a way to make sure you never miss out on anything and I send some interesting articles out at the end of each month. No spam, I promise. So let’s stay in touch and I will talk to you again soon.

Let me know your thoughts!

I’m Stacey

I want veterinarians to become happier, healthier, wealthier and more grateful for this life that we’ve created.

I understand the struggles of a stretched-too-thin veterinarian. I have also learned that with some individual work, there is a brighter side to veterinary medicine. Personal and financial development strategies have helped me find a happier place in my life and in my work. I hope to share resources that will resonate with my fellow veterinarian to allow you to become a more whole person.

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

Let’s be honest. We need to make a profit to keep our practices open. But what is the cost of running a veterinary business without taking your team’s wellbeing into consideration? 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!
