VMG Launches First Grant Scheme For Veterinary Management Research
The Veterinary Management Group (VMG) has launched the first Grant Scheme dedicated specifically to veterinary management research. Researchers and practitioners working in any field of academia, industry and/or clinical practice are invited to apply for an award of up to £2,000 to fund a research project relevant to the aims of the VMG, which represents veterinary professionals working in leadership and management roles. The deadline for applications is 19 July 2019.
The VMG has launched the Grant Scheme in order to help veterinary leaders embrace the challenges and opportunities faced by the sector and to help them to continue to meet patient needs effectively while remaining profitable in today’s increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
VMG Junior Vice President Mr Richard Casey explained: “Business landscapes are changing and the veterinary world is no exception. The VMG is ideally placed not only to support our members but also to help the wider profession. We hope that our Grant Scheme will support research that enhances our understanding of contemporary veterinary business, leadership and management and helps us to develop a solid evidence base for best practice. We are looking forward to receiving some exciting proposals.”
The VMG represents and supports veterinary professionals in leadership or management roles. Offering a range of resources for professional and personal development, it is a collaborative community within which veterinary leaders can share experiences, build relationships and work together to advance their practices and the wider profession.
