An Interactive Program for the Next Generation of Veterinarians

Learn the practical skills needed to find success in and outside of your veterinary career

Each and every veterinarian deserves a fullfilling career.

But without the proper foundation, this profession can quickly leave you feeling 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.

Without this amazing organization, I would not have the connections I have today. My career has benefited greatly from the VMA.

How the Program Works


Eligibility Expectations The program is for current WSVMA members who have graduated within the last 6 years. Veterinarians from any practice type or career path are invited to apply. Ten participants will be selected from the applicant pool to participate.


To derive the most benefit from the program, your attendance is expected at all Power of Ten meetings. Please get your practice owner’s commitment to support your involvement in this initiative since it means you will likely miss a few days of work for these important sessions.

Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a listserv, webinars, and other special offerings exclusive to the Power of Ten.

WSVMA will provide food for gatherings, coaches and the curriculum team. Participants are otherwise responsible for their own lodging if needed and for transportation to all learning experiences.
