We were pleased to partner with Not One More Vet for this VetFuel. This program explores some of the common challenges new graduates face when entering the veterinary profession as well as people shifting areas within the profession. Distinctions between student life in veterinary academic institutions to being doctors in various types of practice are highlighted, and the shifts that may be required for success are reviewed. Concepts focusing on evaluating practice culture, communication, and team dynamics are introduced in addition to how individual doctors contribute to that culture. Lastly, mental health management from the lens of the new graduate or during times of change is emphasized as well as strategies to reduce burnout.
