What can Veterinary Management Institute do for you? Find out from someone who has graduated from the program. Our alumni share the impact VMI has had on them below.



"VMI was a great learning experience. Not only will it help me in my veterinary management role but it will also help me personally. The communication, leadership, and culture modules were very educational and applicable to veterinary practice. There were many learning experiences and the friendships that were made will be long-lasting. Overall, VMI should be considered as a 'must do' continuing education experience."

[VMI] helped me to see a different passion, and let me ignite a passion that I didn’t know I had. I learned that I can still be a really great veterinarian and just apply a different type of skill. It’s opened a whole new professional career path for me.

- Dr. Lisa Mausbach, VMI graduate

"[VMI] made me realize many veterinarians and practice managers are suffering from stress, depression, and a general feeling of being overwhelmed. They are champions for their patients and clients, sometimes to the detriment of their own health or practice culture. I want to be a resource and a fulcrum for change, so they can take positive steps at the practice level to avoid burnout and be passionate about their career choice."

- Deanne Bonner, RVT, CVPM, and VMI graduate


"I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to grow as a practice manager through VMI. The content was very practical and I found myself applying it
immediately at work.
I have also been able to learn a great amount from my classmates and we will continue to keep in touch."

"Overall, I think the program has provided a wonderful foundation for my career goals in the future, so I’m very thankful to be part of it.”

- Alexandra S., VMI graduate

“It’s nice to know that other people are going through the same things. I feel like there’s this big crowd of people that I can reach out to now.”

- Leslie H., 2016 VMI graduate

“We have to know so much and learn so much. But we don’t have to know it all. We can look at the material presented now and say, ‘if we can identify the problem, now we have tools that AAHA provides, and other tools and solutions, to attack anything that affects the hospital.’ ”
