The Veterinary Hospital Managers Association (VHMA) was formed in 1981 in order to provide individuals who are actively involved in Veterinary Practice Management with a means of effective communication and interaction. Our membership is comprised of Veterinarians, Hospital Administrators, Practice Managers, Office Managers and Consultants.

In 1989 the VHMA realized the increasing need among Veterinarians and Practice Managers for a program that would qualify the knowledge and experience necessary to successfully manage the ever-changing business management of today's veterinary practices. The Certified Veterinary Practice Manager (CVPM) certification is the result of that realization.
