Your Successful & Happy Career in Vet Medicine

VetX:Thrive exists because we believe being a vet can and should be the best job ever. But we also know that the challenges you face in practice each day can take their toll and leave you feeling burned out or disenfranchised. The reality is that being a vet is also a hard job and the clinical training you received at vet school is simply not enough to ensure a great career.

In fact, there is another skill set that is so much more important. The non-clinical skills (or life skills as we call them) are things like emotional intelligence, the smarts to say the right word and the right time, the ability to manage your time. These, and many besides are the skills that will provide you with the foundation for a happy and healthy career as a vet.

VetX:Thrive teaches these skills exclusively. But this is so much more than an educational platform. This is a toolkit where you will have access to templates, frameworks and worksheets to help you build and execute your plan. Plus you'll be part of a global support network - a place of positive encouragement. 

And finally, you'll be learning in a RACE and Vetted accredited community where you can get 12 hours of structured education credit.

What You'll Learn

VetX:Thrive combines teaching, practical tools and live group mentoring and community support into one experience so you can develop your skills effectively and safely with your peers. At the heart of the VetX:Thrive program are our outstanding non-clinical skills training modules and associated toolkits. A recognised expert in their field delivers each session. These training modules build consecutively to teach you the tools, mental judo and skills essential to your success and happiness. You can find the full training schedule below.

    Absolutely. Members can submit a minimum of 12 hours of approved CE/CPD as part of their membership.

  • IncludeHow do the live mentoring sessions work?

    Our live sessions are primarily for helping you to achieve your objectives. So we encourage you to submit your challenge ahead of time so your mentor can prepare you the best answer possible. During our live sessions, all community members can attend and listen. We find this to be very useful as many of the challenges faced by members are shared. So you can easily apply what someone is learning
