How much managing do you manage as a manager when you manage to manage?


We know, the answer is ... complicated. But this checklist can help!

Managers: Check yourself before you wreck yourself with the PDF of practice manager competencies and responsibilities above.In the trenches, veterinary practice managers have a wiiiiiiiiide range of skills, talents and responsibilities. So it's understandable if you get a little tongue-twisted when somebody asks what exactly you do as practice manager.

Some of you manage just about everything at your veterinary hospitals.

Some of you manage a lot while navigating your practice owner's "issue" with micromanagement.

Some of you just make sure the receptionists don't start an armed revolt against the boss.

What kind of manager are you-and what kind of manager do you want to be?

Compare your duties to the downloadable checklist PDF above developed from the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association list of critical competencies for certified veterinary practice managers (CVPMs) to see what you do and what you could learn to do in 2016. If you want the big PDF from the VHMA itself, click here.
