MightyVet: A Virtual Veterinary Support Group

April 8, 2018

MightyVet allows veterinarians to scaffold and help each other out, whether as a sounding board, support network or simply someone to vent to.

MightyVet is industry inclusive, says founder Steve Weinrauch, BVMS, MRCVS. As a support group, MightyVet allows veterinarians to scaffold and help each other out, whether as a sounding board, support network or simply someone to vent to, he adds. One of MightVet's goals for the near future is to offer support, mentorship and guidance related to mental wellbeing to future and current veterinary students, Dr. Weinrauch explains.

It's hard if you're in academia to know about financial literacy and the problems people face in private practice, adds Carrie Jurney, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology), but schools are already starting to reach out for assistance with creating related curriculum.
