It is designed to help veterinary practitioners and their teams do what they do even better by providing insight, guidance, and strategies on the non-medical aspects of practice. With a focus on wellness, veterinary-client-patient communication, teamwork, leadership, and organizational culture, The Social Side offers not only what is integral to practicing good medicine, but to achieving happiness and prosperity in practice.

10 CE offerings, all of which offer evidence-based content reflecting the literature in the medical and social sciences. The Social Side of Practice sessions are RACE-approved.

We award 1 CE credit per CE hour (50 minutes) with options for 1, 1.5, or 2 CE credits/session, depending on the session length.
