What is the Power of You?

This program is modeled after our very popular Power of 10 for recent graduates. The Power of You program is designed for IVMA members (owners or associates) who may want to refresh, recharge, renew themselves and or their professional lives.

This program features four one-day sessions plus 3 bonus virtual sessions in key areas to educate and inspire you.  In addition to the great content being offered, you will connect with colleagues during the four meetings. Making new connections in your profession is important!

All sessions will be offered at the IVMA offices in Indianapolis. Lunch is provided.

“As always it has been a great experience working with the IVMA.  I always gain knowledge and support when I come down to participate.”  Dr. Hilary Christner Class of 2018

“I am so glad I took the time to attend!  I gained some great perspective about some of the parts of being a veterinarian that tend to get glazed over.”  Dr. Beth Frank Class of 2018

“This is a great way to learn more or get reminders about how to make your practice better and safer.”  Power of YOU participant 2018

“It was great to have specific time set aside to focus on self and business.  The sessions were informative and thought provoking.”  Power of YOU participant 2018

“I was initially skeptical of the program, but I found the time spent rewarding personally and professionally.”  Power of You participant 2018

“This program gives veterinarians the tools and resources available to truly become better bosses, and coworkers. “Power of YOU participant 2018

“The Power of YOU was a refreshing take on veterinary continuing education.  It covered topics that generally do not get brought into light.” Power of YOU participant 2018

“A good source of practical, common sense information that is not easily found elsewhere.”  Power of YOU participant 2018

“As veterinarians go further into their career, issues we face may change, our need to “know” things continues, but is different.  Things that a new veterinarian may find challenging are different from those for mid-career veterinarians.  The Power of YOU offers a mid-career veterinarian relevant and valuable information and skills to make practice more enjoyable and stimulating.”  Dr. Jerry Risser Class of 2018

“The IVMA provides Power of YOU – a CE opportunity that helps us understand how to be more effective and satisfied in our chosen profession.”  Power of YOU participant 2018
