“As a recent graduate, being an MVMA member gives me immediate opportunities to learn from and network with my colleagues and share my knowledge. I am also part of the MVMA Power of Ten Leadership Academy, a free program to help recent graduates learn how to become more influential leaders and better communicators. MVMA has even connected me with state and national VMA leaders across the country!”

Are you looking for a way to discover your full potential now that you're a practicing veterinarian?
Join the MVMA Power of Ten Leadership Academy!Designed to cultivate leadership skills and provide important real-world learning experiences, the Power of Ten Leadership Academy will provide ten recent graduates (graduated from a college of veterinary medicine within the last 10 years) with 4 leadership development sessions over a year-long period.
MVMA will provide topic experts and food at NO CHARGE for participants to attend sessions that not only convey the key learning points about leadership, but also deepen the understanding of class members on a number of related topics. Likely topics/sessions will include:
We anticipate that classes will also create a sense of community and participants will likely build lasting bonds with members of their academy class.
Get your practice owner to commit to supporting your involvement in this initiative since it means you will likely miss four days of work for these important sessions over a one-year period. Fill out the Power of Ten Leadership Academy Application Form and wait to hear from us!
MVMA thanks Elanco Animal Health and Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine for their partnership on this important initiative!
