What's This Episode About?
This week on the podcast, Dr. Roark and Stephanie tackle another topic from the mailbag. A relief veterinarian wonders how they can better support the practices they work in. How can they prepare ahead of time and ask the right questions about the practices they are working with? What should they ask to get the needed information from the practice to make sure that it is a good fit for their style? They want “practices to be relieved when I come, not feel relief when I leave”.
Andy has a lot of ideas and opinions to share from his days working as a relief veterinarian and Stephanie has some good ideas for questions the clinic should be asking, questions the relief vet should be asking, and ideas for a plan pre/post relief vet experience. Let’s get into this…

October 21-23: Uncharted Culture Conference, Virtual *Buy 2, Get 1 FREE ends TODAY*
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?
