Your one-stop shop for all things veterinary
Adam Christman, DVM, MBA
On behalf of the dvm360® family, we want to wish you and yours a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.
We are proud to continue to serve you with veterinary education in print, online, and in person in 2021. As you read through our family of publications this month and this year, you might notice small shifts in coverage. One of our major initiatives is to make sure dvm360 ®, Vetted TM, and Firstline ® provide their respective audiences with the news, clinical insight, and business information the entire veterinary team needs to stay up-to-date, practice your best medicine, and manage your business successfully.
To that end, dvm360 ® will continue to serve as our primary news publication, covering the latest industry information, issues affecting the profession, research, and advances in veterinary medicine. We’ll also be hearing more of the veterinary student voice this year, with both commentary and clinical content from the youngest members of the profession. And we’re looking to include more of your voice in the magazine this year, so if you want to share your insight about a clinical topic or offer your thoughts about any of the issues facing our profession, let us know.
VettedTM, which is undergoing the biggest content shift of our publications, is now geared toward practice owners and managers, with financial, human resources, and other business-related content aimed at providing the tools you need to own and manage a successful veterinary practice. Firstline ® will continue to include news, clinical, and career focused content that veterinary technicians, assistants, and other team members need to help them be more successful at work. And because they affect all areas of practice and all veterinary professionals, each of our publications will cover the all-important topics of wellbeing, leadership, and technology and innovation.
Our conferences have evolved throughout 2020 to match the landscape of our profession and our world, and that will continue in 2021. We are offering 2 virtual Fetch dvm360® conferences early in the year (February 25-27 and May 13-15) followed by several live shows starting in June in Indianapolis, Baltimore, Kansas City, Atlantic City, and San Diego. There truly will be something for everyone in either the virtual or live space.
I encourage you all to participate in the live webinars we host throughout the year. They are free to attend and cover such important topics as technology, clinical mysteries, parenting while practicing, diversity, and much more! You can also take advantage of our newly updated Continuing Education Center (connect.dvm360. com/cecenter), which offers a wide variety of RACE-approved clinical and business-related sessions for the whole team. We’ve even got you covered with The Vet Blast Podcast and live chats on Instagram (@dvm360mag).
We have truly put the “multi” in our medical multimedia company this year. Be sure to follow us on all of our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube) and subscribe to our newsletters so you stay constantly in the know. Thank you for your continued support as we navigate 2021 together
