Abstract

It will be too late on graduation day to suddenly discover that you are a businessman or businesswoman. The vast majority of veteriarians enter the business world as an associate in business. A few continue their education, accept employment with a governmental agency or are employed in industry. Althouth the new graduate will probably not be the business owner, he or she will cenainly represent that business to the public. A few heany souls will thrust out their shingle and do battle in the world of business. It is unfortunate that few, if any, graduates obtaining a DVM or VMD realize that they are now in a business. By being in a business, one would expect to have some background in marketing, accounting, law, purchasing, management, and a vast array of other skills. The professional with a veterinary medical background has a sound foundation in the sciences, surgery, neurology, chemistry, but is woefully lacking in knowledge of business.
