What Can a CVPM Bring to YOUR Veterinary Practice?

The CVPM certification process is rigorous and focuses on creating well-rounded practice managers who demonstrate a high level of expertise and who are better prepared to address the needs of practice owners. CVPM certification ensures the continuation of ongoing learning and connects like-minded professionals who share information and support. 

Certification is a win-win for the practice and its manager!

The CVPM certification program and the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association (VHMA) are exclusive of each other, but go hand-in-hand in enhancing one’s professional career.
