Our mission is simple – To help you grow your management skills through learning, sharing and growing!
The Veterinary Management Group exists to provide individuals who are involved in the management of veterinary practice with an effective means of communication and interaction with others with similar interests, as well as a forum for promoting, providing and recognising training and excellence in all aspects of veterinary practice management. With an active national and regional structure, the VMG is also able to give its members a voice with which to lobby at all levels.
- Professional Development and Certification
The VMG holds regional networking meetings across the UK to keep members up-to-date on topical business and management issues. Together with the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS) , it hosts a joint programme of business CPD throughout the year and a well-attended annual congress. The VMG is also the awarding body of the Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management (CVPM) and the Veterinary Practice Administration Certificate (VPAC).
- Connecting with Others
The VMG facilitates networking and sharing of ideas through welcoming regional groups, a two-day congress with fun social programme, and a busy online forum. The VMG is led by an energetic board dedicated to meeting the needs of its members.
- Your Go-To Practice Management Resource
The VMG shares best practice through on-line materials, a business and management focused member magazine ‘Practice Life’ and newsletter updates. The VMG works with a number of commercial business partners to offer money-saving member benefits and discounts off services.
- Your Voice in the Profession
The VMG ensures your voice is heard through active lobbying in the interests of practice management staff before governing, industry and professional bodies, and engagement with national and veterinary media.
