The deadline for independent practice leaders to participate in an ongoing clinical trial focused on veterinary burnout has been extended to January 23. Another study seeking to understand the current roles of veterinary technicians has also extended its sign-up deadline to January 23.
Data from practices already participating show promising results, and researchers want to expand these opportunities to as many practices as possible. If you’re interested in gaining valuable insight about your practice while helping advance the veterinary profession, consider signing up for one or both of these studies!
Studying veterinary burnout
The ongoing study of veterinary burnout, funded by the AVMA and Zoetis, and conducted by researchers from Cornell University, allows participants the chance to attend a series of free workshops to discover tools and skills to help increase wellbeing, reduce burnout, and boost profitability.
Participants can plan to spend about five total hours of time in the form of one-hour workshops spread out across January and February, plus the completion of a small number of short surveys before and after the program.

Improving veterinary technician engagement
The veterinary technician study, funded by AVMA and conducted by researchers at Cornell University, aims to understand the current roles of veterinary technicians and identify potential reasons why practices don’t always take advantage of all of their veterinary technicians’ education and skills.
Participants can plan to spend one to three hours per employee across the duration of the study.
