However, completing a short certificate program will enhance the career of a veterinary practice manager and enable them to receive CVPM endorsement from the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association (VHMA). Here are a couple of training options that offer veterinary practice management programs: 1.

1. Complete your undergraduate studies. Though you aren’t required to obtain a four-year bachelor’s degree prior to attending veterinary school, most programs have pretty strict course requirements.
2. Gather veterinary and animal experience. Gaining as much animal experience as you can, particularly under the supervision of a veterinarian, is going to be a huge help as you get closer to applying to vet school.
3. Select schools and address specific admission requirements. Start researching programs well before applying, because each has slightly different admission requirements.
4. Obtain your DVM. Once you gain an acceptance letter or two, it’s time to make your final decision and enroll at a veterinary school. Programs vary, but you should expect to spend four years completing basic sciences courses and gaining clinical experience.
5. Determine how to receive your CQ. Every veterinary graduate must obtain a Certificate of Qualification (CQ) to become licensed, but this process can vary.
6. Complete additional licensing requirements. You’ll need to address provincial licensing requirements after obtaining your CQ. You’ll have to pay a fee and fill out paperwork, but you could also be responsible for additional materials, since each province is different.
7. Obtain additional training if you’d like to specialize. If there is a specialty area of veterinary medicine you would like to pursue, you’ll first need to complete a residency.
8. Begin your career. You’ll want to spend plenty of time researching different career options before you settle on what type of veterinarian you want to be, and then reach out to your network.

1. Optimize your undergraduate experience. Most veterinary schools expect students to complete a bachelor’s degree, which needs to include specific courses.
2. Gain as much experience as possible. The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) 2019–2020 data report shows most applicants have spent hundreds of hours working with animals, and many schools emphasize work performed under the supervision of a veterinarian.
3. Apply to veterinary programs. It’s critical to focus on performing well in your course prerequisites in addition to gaining plenty of animal and veterinary experience before applying to DVM programs.
4. Obtain your DVM. A typical doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM) program curriculum spans four years. You’ll likely spend your first two years completing coursework in classes and labs.
5. Study for and pass the NAVLE. The North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) is the most important test you’ll take on the road to becoming a veterinarian, because you must earn a passing score in order to practice.
6. Complete any additional requirements. You may need to complete additional steps depending on where you want to practice. Make sure to contact the correct provincial regulatory body in Canada or state regulatory board in the US to find out which specific requirements you need to meet.
7. Pursue further training if desired. Veterinary school graduates are able to begin practicing immediately after graduating and obtaining their licenses.
8. Begin your veterinary career. You’re free to begin practicing at this point, but make sure you’ve planned to start your career search well in advance.

1. Gain experience in the veterinary field. Preparing for a career as a veterinarian begins long before even graduating from high school. You will want to gain as much experience with animals and in the veterinary field as possible during high school and your undergraduate career. This experience will expose you to what veterinarians actually do, and will give you veterinary experience to put on your resume for veterinary school. In the United States there are 30 colleges of veterinary medicine which graduate about 3,000 veterinarians a year. You could volunteer at your local animal shelter, or you could shadow your pet's veterinarian. Working at a livestock farm can also help you gain valuable animal experience. Most colleges of veterinary medicine require a minimum of 400 hours of animal related experience
2. Graduate from high school. While in high school, you should pay attention to your performance in science courses, such as Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. Also pay attention to math courses, such as Trigonometry, Geometry, and Algebra. If you can excel in these areas, it may be a good indicator that medicine is the right field for you. If possible, take AP classes. Also, excelling in English class will help, as veterinarians need to be good at communicating to other people. If you do not have a high school diploma, you can try to pass the GED exam, and earn a GED instead. Passing the GED exam might seem like a good idea, but many veterinary colleges prefer that you have completed high school. However, if you excel in undergraduate school, you will at least be a competitive applicant.
3. Get a bachelors degree. You will need to attend an undergraduate college or university which offers the pre-requisite courses for admittance into veterinary college. Make sure to complete all prerequisite courses for veterinary school. If one school's prerequisites vary from some of the others, make sure to take the prerequisite courses for all of these schools. These courses consist of many advanced science courses, such as biochemistry, organic and inorganic chemistry, and physics. They are necessary to prepare the student for the vigorous coursework in veterinary college. Keep in mind, there is no degree required to get into veterinary schools, nor is there any "preferred" degrees so no need to take a STEM degree. However, if you still want to go with Biology, Physics, Chemistry, at least you will be a fierce applicant which is good because colleges like to see students try to push themselves to the limit.
4. Consider an accelerated path to veterinary school. This may save considerable time and money. According to the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), more than 10% of recent incoming vet school students did not earn a bachelor's degree. These students may have earned an associate's degree in a field like animal science, or earned no degree in college while completing the prerequisite courses for veterinary school.
