IVMA Partner Clinic Program

The IVMA Partner Clinic Program is an initiative created by the IVMA Board of Directors in March 2021. The program is designed to provide a framework for engagement with veterinary clinics in a variety of practice types and locations from around the state to be a touchpoint for the pulse of veterinary medicine in Indiana. The purpose of the IVMA Partner Clinic Program is to identify and engage IVMA veterinary hospitals and veterinarians around the state to identify emerging issues, challenges, and opportunities in veterinary medicine in Indiana.

Why Participate?
Benefits for Partner Clinics
• Assist IVMA in understanding the challenges and opportunities for veterinary medicine in Indiana.
• Receive one registration to the 2022 Crossroads Veterinary Conference at half the price.
• See results of surveys, data compilation, access to experts, and webinars.

Expectations of the Partner Clinics:
• Point of contact required in each clinic/practice area – practice owner, associate veterinarian, and/or practice manager.
• Respond to quarterly surveys, requests for information and/or Zoom meetings – who completes this will depend on the nature of the request.
The time commitment would be roughly 1 hour per quarter for a total of a 4-hour commitment.
