VetCoach & VetTeamCoach Projects

The VetCoach project is a private non-profit project aimed to optimize the career start of young veterinary professionals and their staff. VetCoach has asked many members of the veterinary health care teams around the world to share their answer to the simple question: “What did you learn after graduation that you wish you had known on day one?” Many colleagues have shared their learning and today seven VetCoach editions and one VetTeamCoach editions have been published together making over 15,000 copies available to young veterinary and staff professionals. The objective of the VetCoach project to inspire and motivate young veterinarians entering the profession.

The vision of the VetCoach project is to bring a VetCoach book into the hands of every young veterinary professional around the world before or soon after graduation.
