Boosting Your Financial IQ to Maximize Fiscal Performance:

WHY BUDGETING CAN PREVENT PROBLEMS AND RELIEVE STRESS


Budgeting is an important part of running a veterinary practice, but often it gets lost in the busyness of day-to-day work. Budgets can benefit a practice in many different ways – allowing owners and DVMs to anticipate problems and make continuous improvements, enabling sound financial decisions, establishing accountability and even establishing incentives for key management personnel, to name a few.

Creating and maintaining budgets may seem overwhelming, but it is important to view it as an investment in the practice itself. In this session, attendees will learn what basic information is required to establish a budget and what other items need to be considered in order to make a budget comprehensive. Various types of budgets will be discussed as well as various methods for analyzing budget metrics.

A sample DVM budget, accounting for all the categories and types of expenses an animal hospital would encounter, will be shared with attendees, giving them a template for implementing a budget in their own practice.

Learning Objectives
1.      Understand what basic information is required to establish a budget
2.      Implement budget basics in the creation of a budget for a veterinary hospital
