Teambuilding is crucial to a successful veterinary practice. Each member of the veterinary healthcare team plays an important role that is critical to the overall success of the team and, subsequently, to the overall wellness of the patient and the success of the hospital. The difference between an engaged workplace and a dysfunctional one is teamwork.
On this week’s episode, Tabitha talks to Aaron about teambuilding best practices in vet med. Aarons drops some wisdom on how veterinary hospitals can recruit and retain with compassion and stability, how to train practice leaders for success, and how independent practices can compete in the current atmosphere.
Aaron Davis began his vet med journey 22 years ago at the age of 14 working as a kennel tech after school. From there he went on to spend 12 years in emergency/critical care medicine as a vet assistant, and later onto managing spec/er and GP hospitals and practices. Aaron is a vocal advocate for compassionate patient care, inclusive leadership, expanding access to care, and creating stable and long-term opportunities for clinical staff. Aaron was born and raised in Texas but currently lives in NYC with his rescue dog, Coquito, his foundling cat, Agatha, and his guinea pig, Chickpea. Aaron and his partner enjoy cooking fancy meals, going on hikes, gaming, traveling, and watching Schitt’s Creek.
