 The 2012 Practice Analysis Report - Are human resource skills and social media skills trumping practice organization as must-have skills for veterinary practice managers? A new survey conducted by the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association (VHMA), says yes! The survey evaluated the relevance and importance of skills in five areas. The VHMA’s certification body will use the findings to update its Certified Veterinary Practice Manager’s (CVPM) certification exam. But practice managers and owners will find the results useful in preparing and responding to changing demands on the practice manager’s position. 


Empower U Self-Assessment Tool - VHMA is pleased to announce that practice management professionals can now access a self-assessment tool that will allow them to evaluate their veterinary practice management knowledge. Empower U Self-Assessment test is a non-proctored examination modeled after the CVPM examination and is available to all practice management professionals.


CVPM Test Preparation Study Program - The VHMA's CVPM Test Preparation Study Program supports learning through an organized and facilitated study group. The program is indispensable to veterinary practice managers preparing for the CVPM examination, new managers looking for a comprehensive introduction to management concepts, as well as experienced managers interested in a thorough review and update of management principles.
