VBMA - Kansas State Chapter of the Veterinary Business Management Association

 

The VBMA is a national student-managed organization intent on improving the veterinary profession through increasing business knowledge. We share the belief of many other veterinary professionals – in order to provide the best care for animals, we need to increase our knowledge about subjects outside the medical realm.

We feel that bringing business management issues to veterinary students is integral to the education of a well-rounded veterinarian and the advancement of veterinary medicine as a profession. This knowledge of business will translate into increased sales, stronger veterinarian-supplier relationships, and allow veterinarians to practice better medicine.

Though veterinary business management issues are a large concern, our organization is not limited to solely promoting veterinary business management issues. Other issues include managing debt, how to plan for the future, client interaction, and the importance of managing personal finances.
