VMC invites referring vet clinics to attend online town hall meeting

The WCVM Veterinary Medical Centre (VMC) invites veterinarians and their clinical staff to attend an online town hall meeting at 6:45 p.m. CST, Tuesday evening, June 21.

Members of the VMC's leadership and clinical team will give updates about the veterinary teaching hospital's operations and plans including the following: 

  • the VMC's plans to purchase and install a new linear accelerator and the temporary shut down of radiation therapy services
  • the VMC's challenges in maintaining full emergency and critical care services due to higher demand for emergency care and limited clinical staff
  • upcoming changes in the VMC's leadership team

As well, the meeting will provide referring veterinarians and clinical staff the opportunity to give feedback and to ask questions about the VMC's services.

Since everyone in the veterinary profession is facing similar challenges caused by clinical staff shortages and the greater demand for veterinary services, the VMC also hopes to generate discussion about possible strategies that clinics are using to to deal with these issues. 

The VMC team hopes that you and members of your clinical staff can join the following meeting:
