The Future Leaders Program is unique and takes a holistic approach to leadership development. Its goal is to develop the strengths and talents of veterinarians, promoting their leadership skills for the benefit of the veterinary workplace, society as a whole, and especially our profession through leadership in organized veterinary medicine. To develop those skills, participants get to complete 360-degree assessments and follow their short- and long-term goals with our professional facilitator, Dr. Ken Andrews, while also fostering individual relationships with prominent veterinarians and participating in leadership lectures. Each class of Future Leaders also works as a team to develop novel, useable resources for AVMA members, thus strengthening teambuilding and project management skills.
