Event Description

Can we be taught to become more resilient? Can we support others to do so? Veterinary practices place huge demands on veterinarians – testing their clinical and professional skills on a daily basis. Dissatisfaction and stress, be it occasional or frequent, can make us all sometimes wonder why we became vets in the first place. Building resilience to deal with the inevitable challenges and pressures of practice may not seem to be a “teachable” skill – but it is! Why do this course?

Through this course you will develop a better understanding of our profession, will take time to focus on why you wanted to be a vet in the first place, and enjoy discussing with peers the challenges faced in everyday practice. All of which will help to build support for the difficult days in practice, to mentor colleagues who may be facing similar issues and to regain a love for the profession we were all once so desperate to join.
