10/27/2018
1:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Veterinary medicine is changing in many ways, with shifts in gender and generational demographics and a drift in specialized medicine away from academia to the private sector. The concept of “work-life balance” is also increasingly identified as an important factor for determining a career path within the profession. Objective data from Diplomates in private and academic practice, and in large and small animal surgery, are provided on aspects of work life, elements of personal life, factors contributing to success in the workplace, and the ongoing income gap and disparity in professional advancement between men and women. Thoughtful discussion between panelists from all different types of careers and backgrounds will follow, to provide personal experiences and insights to help consider possible causes and solutions to some of the issues we are all facing. Valuable information is provided on a timely topic for surgeons in all areas and levels of the profession who seek to create satisfying work environments and to promote progress for the future of veterinary surgery.
