Curriculum

  • The VPMP curriculum is organized into four modules, making it convienent for busy veterinary professionals.
  • Modules are spaced out over six months, starting in September and ending in February.

Courses

The on-campus modules take place on Purdue's West Lafayette, Indiana campus over a 3-day period, followed by a 90-minute virtual office hours session for you to work directly with the instructor to help apply the concepts to your work after you've returned home. The faculty members from all four courses will be available during both on-campus modules to help draw connections between topics and create an actionable plan to take back to your practice. The online modules are made up of four 90-minute synchronous sessions plus 8 hours of synchronous classes over a two-day weekend.
