The VMC School of Veterinary Practice Management

A one week intensive training program designed to teach managers and owners what they need to know.

Imagine your ideal veterinary practice – a hospital within which:


Your staff performs in accordance with your policies, procedures, and medical protocols making employee evaluations more productive and mutually beneficial.


Your medical compliance stats and client retention rate metrics prove you are providing quality veterinary medicine and delighting your clients.


You are pleased with your K.P.I. (key performance indicator) and K.F.I. (key financial indicator) data related only to those areas which matter the most to your unique hospital.

"Without VMC, I would have failed as a startup. I came with high expectations, and VMC exceeded them!"
- Dr. Charles Felz, Somerset Veterinary Hospital

Your internal systems, processes, and tracking protocols make it easy for you to capitalize on positive trends and quickly spot gaps which could have negative ramifications if left unchecked.

Together, we are VMC.

Actually, together with YOU, we are VMC because we’ve been helping veterinary professionals, just like you, in thousands of veterinary practices around the globe to utilize our proven systems, tools, and technology to better manage their businesses. Your VMC instructors will be guiding you every step of the way – along with 6-months of follow-up coaching to support you as you use our tools and techniques to implement the systems and protocols.

In other words, we’ll go above and beyond to help our students turn their imagined ideal practices into reality.

Attending the VMC School is by far the best decision I have made in my Hospital Administration career. If you have experience – or no experience in the field, you are going to walk away with tools to assist you and make you a better Administrator/Manager. The school provided me with practical tools to implement immediately and that I use daily. Mark, Sheila, and Monica are excellent instructors and they are available to consult with you in implementing the tools they have provided.
