President’s Message

IVMA President
Dr. Hilary Christner


Spring is starting to happen all around us. As I start to see things turning green, I enjoy watching the new growth that happens all around. This excitement and growth makes me look forward to the growth and new things that the IVMA is working on this year. The IVMA Board of Directors has approved moving forward on the SMART goals for 2021 that will continue to keep our association growing and moving forward.

Practice Management


One of the biggest topics in Veterinary Medicine since COVID-19 struck the globe has been telemedicine. It’s been debated in online forums, in Veterinary Medical Association board rooms, in legislatures, and many of us are experimenting however we can in order to do the best at this time. One of the things I hope every veterinarian will strongly consider is the opportunity provided through telemedicine to provide increased access to care for highly anxious pets.

Continuing Education

Insights Discovery Training

It all starts with perception. Two people can look at the same thing and yet both see something different (do you see a young or old lady?). Your unique view is formed by your own individual perceptions and beliefs. If you understand where these perceptions and beliefs come from, you can then begin to understand why other people see things differently. By understanding people, you can begin to appreciate who they are and improve your relationships with them.
