Alliance Academy Mentors is a 12-Month program that focuses on building confident clinical skills and positive mental health and wellbeing. There will be support offered along the way by our multi-tier mentors along with the entire Alliance DVM Network. We believe the key to success is building on clinical skills while keeping mental health in the forefront.
This is not your average Mentorship. It’s a one-of-its-kind program designed to help both post-graduate and new veterinarians translate “book learning” into real-life applications before their first day starts!
By going through Alliance Academy Mentors, new graduates will gain confidence, soft skills, and business insights so they can feel prepared for their new roles. Not only that, but they’ll also have gained a competitive edge against other veterinarian students because their experience won’t stop in the classroom. Instead, participants will be exposed to the ins and outs of a vet’s daily job.
Additional Educational offerings will be provided throughout the program in a variety of unique ways. A continuing education series focuses on conflict, communication, and compassion fatigue. The content is presented by highly sought out industry speakers and are RACE-approved.
Monthly Webinar led discussions that focus on school vs. real-life scenarios. These scenarios are an additional chance to gain insight from fellow new graduates and find areas of success or struggle. These sessions will offer support from the Alliance Animal Health Family and fellow graduates.
New Graduates will have an opportunity to join us for a hands-on Dental Wet Lab session, where a Board Certified Dentist will guide recent graduates through both feline and canine extractions and radiographs.
Participants in the program will have an opportunity to role-play, real-life exam room situations, and receive guidance on how to approach difficult situations.
New Veterinarians are paired with a Tenured DVM in practice who will mentor/guide you along with a Junior Mentor who’s there for that additional support. Most private practices don’t have the time for meaningful onboarding and mentorship, but our network of DVMs makes the time. You will join a community where we set each person up for success. You can count on real connections, so there will always be a dedicated doctor to mentor you in each of the practices we partner with.
