In part two of our chat with Dr. Dave Nicol, he talks about success means in veterinary medicine. We talk about burnout in our profession, why it happens, and what veterinary team leaders can do to meet emotional needs. Dave talks about his VetX program and how it can help vets overcome fears, develop resilience and tenacity, learn how to have conversations with pet owners, and develop leadership skills. And you’ll hear what Jolle thought VetX meant!
Dr. Dave Nicol’s Blunt Dissection podcast is one of the inspirations for our PurrPodcast, so we were delighted to sit down with him at VMX 2019 for a chat. Dave is well known as a practice management speaker, an author (So You’re A Vet … Now What? and The Yellow Pages are Dead), a blogger (The Hamster Wheel Blog), and the founder of VetX. A real underachiever. In part one, you’ll hear Dave explain how he got his first cat by accident, why he is like Dory in Finding Nemo, and how he learned to be a leader.
