Power of Ten Leadership Academy application deadline is Monday, Sept. 11!

September 8, 2023

Attention 2017-2023 graduates! Join the WSVMA for our exciting leadership program! Power of Ten is a WSVMA initiative designed to help recent graduates develop foundational skills in leadership, communication, and business. Ten participants will be selected from the applicant pool to participate in the Power of Ten leadership academy for the coming year. Participants will join a network of peers in a series of learning experiences that commence in November 2023 and culminate in September 2024.

Every veterinarian deserves a fulfilling career. But without the proper foundation, you can quickly feel in over your head…

  • Work can leave you feeling isolated and overwhelmed.
  • You don’t feel equipped to handle challenging situations.
  • Expectations and pressures from work impact your relationships.
  • You’re not sure you have what it takes to perform at a high level.
  • Educational debt seems impossible to overcome.
  • It’s difficult to find a space for authentic conversations.

That’s why we created the Power of 10. It’s an interactive program that gives the next generation of veterinarians the skill sets they need to confidently advance not just in their careers but in real life.

Participation in the Power of Ten class, partially creates a spirit of community and participants build lasting bonds with other members of the leadership academy class.

In-person learning experiences are scheduled to minimize the impact on working hours — and the entire program is designed to garner support from practice owners who recognize their key responsibility in developing human potential.

Dr. Kristi Wubben, recognized for her leadership within the veterinary profession, is the curriculum coach. She’ll be assisted by subject matter experts, veterinary mentors, and certified facilitators in helping Power of Ten participants grow through in-depth, high-impact learning experiences.

Participants will receive full tuition scholarships to the program — plus complimentary registration to WSVMA’s Pacific Northwest Veterinary Conference 2024 in Tacoma, where Power of Ten Leadership Academy graduates will be recognized.

Deadline for applications is Sept. 11, 2023.
