Veterinary Practice Financials: Learning Where to Start


By learning key financial principles and techniques, participants in the Veterinary Practice Financials: Learning Where To Start module will be able to evaluate, critique and set sound financial direction for a practice.

Beginning with a review of financial statements, the module will focus on how financial information is analyzed and used by management in decision-making. Key topics include understanding business ratios, cash flow, financial planning, working capital management, debt capacity, capital budgeting and fixed vs. variable costs. The course will make extensive use of veterinary case studies and illustrations.

This online module is made up of four 90-minute synchronous sessions plus 8 hours of synchronous classes over a two-day weekend.
