David Dycus is frequent speaker at the Fetch dvm360 conferences, an orthopedic staff surgeon at Veterinary Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Group in Annapolis Junction, Maryland, and co-founder and co-director of the Veterinary Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation Institute.

Hey veterinarians, overwhelmed? Unburden yourself and use your techs, says this Fetch dvm360 speaker.

Veterinarians are capable of accomplishing every task that needs to be completed in the exam room. This can lead to Type A behavior of actually doing everything in the exam room, which can eventually result in a nasty attitude and even burnout.

But Fetch dvm360 conference speaker David Dycus, DVM, MS, DACVS-SA, has an "innovative" idea.

Tech talk you need

Vet techs to managers: Use our skills!

Why vet techs stay (and what will send them running).

Q&A: A vet tech with heart.

"We can utilize our technicians to do the things they were trained to do," he says.

This frees doctors up to focus on their own jobs and redistributes responsibilities, lightening the load, Dr. Dycus says. It also clears a path for veterinary technicians to attain their own career goals.
