PVM Students Receive Veterinary Practice Management Program Scholarships

June 9, 2017

Congratulations to five Purdue Veterinary Medicine students who received scholarships to participate in the Veterinary Practice Management Program (VPMP). The professional development program draws participants from across the country and all areas of the veterinary profession. They gather at Purdue's Krannert Center for Executive Education and Research as a cohort of colleagues for four modules during four weekends spanning 18 months.

The PVM students receiving 2017 VPMP scholarships are Katie Bauer, Lisa Bowes, Megan Knauer, and Kristen Thomas, all of the DVM Class of 2020, and Brooke Fourthman, of the DVM Class of 2019. Their cohort will begin the first VPMP module on human resource management August 24 – 27. The other modules cover accounting and financial management, marketing management, and strategic thinking.

VPMP involves a collaboration between Purdue Veterinary Medicine and the Krannert School of Management. Recognizing the value of VPMP for veterinary students as well as practitioners, the College of Veterinary Medicine established the VPMP scholarships to help five Purdue DVM students enroll in the graduate-level professional development program. VPMP participants receive continuing education (CE) credits for completion of each module. Those who satisfactorily complete all four modules receive a Veterinary Practice Management Program Certificate from the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Krannert School of Management.
