The VPP Leadership Academy is a course that provides great insight on becoming a successful and inspiring leader in the current workplace. The Leadership Academy is an excellent program for any partner, medical director or practice manager and we are fortunate that VPP provides this opportunity for us all.

My externship at Pure Paws Veterinary Care of Hell's Kitchen has been one of my best experiences thus far. Dr. Liff and the rest of the staff provided a positive learning environment, allowing me to gain new skills and excel in this field quickly. Everyone on staff, including the team at the Clinton Hill location, was welcoming, patient, and willing to teach me; it was the experience I had been longing for. My time at Pure Paws Veterinary Care gave me the growth I needed to prepare me for my 3rd year of vet school. I am excited to apply what I learned throughout my externship during the school year.- Nia Salandy, Tuskegee University and Student Pure Paws Veterinary Care of Hell’s Kitchen Extern

The VPP Practice Manager Academy provided me with new techniques to improve my communication with my team, fresh ideas to grow my business with marketing, strategic ways to set and meet goals for my hospital, and new insights on the P & L. Having the opportunity to work closely with the operations team and other practice managers allowed me to gain new prospectives from a large number of highly skilled, knowledgeable people in a short time frame. The compassion for Veterinary Medicine from each and every attendee was tangible over those few days and proved that we can and will make an impact on the industry. I am proud to be a part of the VPP family.- Lusie Crawford, LVT at Cainhoy Veterinary Hospital
I had an amazing externship with Annapolis Cat Hospital. The team at the practice was kind, and welcoming. The doctors were extremely knowledgeable and great teachers. The support staff were wonderful and extremely helpful. The exposure and case loads of this experience allowed me to shape and refine my skills as a 4th year veterinary student to provide the highest quality of care to my future patients. I am forever grateful for VPP for facilitating this externship experience.- Lindsey Airth, Western University Veterinary School and Annapolis Cat Hospital/Bay Ridge Animal Hospital Extern
I was a VPP student ambassador at the University of Tennessee and it has been one of the best experiences of vet school. I have met great people through VPP and it has really changed my perspective on what corporate vet practices can look like. I love how each clinic is unique yet still encourages a family atmosphere so that everyone, from veterinarians to technicians to receptionists, can enjoy coming to work. After how much I enjoyed being an ambassador I cannot wait to do an externship at one of the VPP hospitals during my clinical year!- Taylor Demers, University of Tennessee Extern Ambassador
