The American Association of Bovine Practitioners is offering workshops for recent veterinary graduates in rural areas who are looking to buy or build a practice, need help understanding practice finances, or need more instruction on human resources management. The Manage Your Rural Practice for Success workshops consist of two intensive, three-day workshops held a year apart, in St. Louis.

Participants can be from or adjacent to a shortage area designated by the federal Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program or, if not serving in or planning to serve in a VMLRP area, indicate why the area they are serving in should be considered a shortage area. The AABP will award participants a $900 stipend for each workshop to offset travel expenses. Some seats will be available at each workshop for a second person from the primary participant's practice to attend for a fee of $250.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. EST on Dec. 15. Get the full details and online application form.
