Article

Taking the BizQuiz? This is the answer to question 10 of "Are you educating your veterinary team?"

10) B—Acceptable

You're doing an acceptable job of educating your assistants. In 2008, 84 percent of Well-Managed Practices spent less than $500 on CE per assistant. But if you don't have the money or drive to educate these team members, consider turning them onto free or low-cost educational opportunities.

You can organize company-sponsored education or send ambitious assistants online for no-cost or low-cost CE opportunities.

How did you do?

If you answered mostly with "A"s, it's time to rethink your stance on education. Staff members will more than recoup the investment you make in them with the ideas and enthusiasm they will bring back to the practice.

If you answered mostly with "B"s, you're heading in the right direction. You know that practice-sponsored education is important for the growth and enrichment of staff members, but there's room for you to improve. Be sure to budget for training, educational programs, seminars, and any travel expenses that may be necessary to attend external CE.

If you answered mostly with "C"s, you're outstanding! Your team members benefit from multiple practice-sponsored opportunities to learn, plus you provide funds for external seminars and conferences. You back your team members in their quest for knowledge and your practice benefits from what they learn. Keep encouraging education!
