What's This Episode About?
This week on the podcast, Dr. Roark and Stephanie tackle a topic from the mailbag. Dr. Fed Up writes in and asks for help with letting go of their guilt over giving their notice at their new practice. Dr. Fed Up was hired as a new grad and promised support and mentorship. Fast forward to the present where they are often working alone with no other veterinarian present in the building and tackling a full surgical caseload that they don’t feel confident tackling. Dr. Fed Up wants to quit and move on to something that would be a better fit for them but is struggling with 3 questions – How do I tell them why I am leaving, how much notice do I give, and do I feel guilty that the leaders of this practice may have to close a location (temporarily or permanently) due to lack of veterinarians?

October 21-23: Uncharted Culture Conference, Virtual
Culture is the heart of what makes your practice unique. It’s the blend of personalities, passions and processes that give your team a sense of belonging. It creates a clear understanding of what people can expect from their jobs and what’s expected of them. Culture can build up a practice into the place everyone in town wants to work, or more quickly break it down into the place no one wants to apply.
Every veterinary clinic has a culture — are you being intentional in choosing what yours will be?
