If there is one thing we have learned since we first developed the veterinary software, it is that from the time veterinarians begin school they no longer have any free time. We have been working to understand what takes up most of the time in a veterinarians day and we are working towards solving just one small piece of the puzzle.
Through partnerships and attending trade shows we have learned that we are not the only ones who share the goal of improving veterinarians work flow and providing them with more time for what is important.
VETgirl, a well known veterinarian through all social media mediums, was a developed by a vet student who was struggling to live a balanced life. When she was student for her board examination she felt she needed to go for a run to relieve some stress. While out running she was wishing that she could be listening to her study materials while running to help with the time crunch. It was at this point that the concept of VETgirl was born. VETgirl, also known as Dr. Justine Lee, partnered up with Dr. Pachtinger who is tech savvy to bring the concept of VETgirl to life.
The goal of VETgirl is to provide continuing education to veterinarians that does not require them to take time off work, travel to a different city, or pay for flights and accommodations. Through the use of technology which we are surround by every day, veterinarians can gain access to CE where ever they are whether it be driving in the car, taking the dog for a walk or waiting to pick the kids up from their extra curricular activities.
VETgirl CE can be simply accessed on a laptop, smart phone or a tablet. A subscription grants a veterinarian access to 40 hours of RACE approved content. The content is displayed in webinars, how to videos, real life rounds and podcasts.
VETgirl and their success in providing veterinarians with continuing education from the comfort of their own home has made their presence on social media extensive. For the first time, VETgirl will be hosting their own continuing education conference called VETgirl-U. The conference has been sold out for months.
Dragon Veterinary is excited to announce that we have obtained a spot in the exhibitor hall and can't wait! This innovative and forward thinking conference is exactly the energy we are love to see. Please drop by our table to have a chat with us about your practice.
We look forward to seeing everyone at VETgirl-U next week!
