Vet Field Experts
Welcome all you animal lovers (and friends of animal lovers) who found your way here, where we have been waiting for you! We want to help with your career development in veterinary medicine. Whether you are just starting out or are looking to expand your knowledge-base, VTI is your resource!
We virtually opened our doors 25 years ago with a mission to create a bridge between veterinary practice needs for trained staff and the people passionate about animals who want that training. Back then, distance learning was mostly mail order. We wanted better so used cutting-edge teleconferencing to project our live lectures. Fast-forward to today when we have the cloud at our fingertips. Students access their classes anytime, anywhere, on any device. And the clinics have a solid resource for finding trained staff hires, including on veterinary software.
Our curriculum meets the standards for small animal technician training and keeps up with industry trends, like managing curbside appointments during these pandemic times.
The curriculum development team comes from the educational field, veterinary medicine, practice consulting, and practice management software. We deliver optimal learning environments for both our diploma and extension programs.
You can get to know me, Kim Fish, the School Director, on LinkedIn. I am also the President at AVCSuccess, a national consulting firm, and the VP of Product at Rhapsody, a cloud-based practice management software (PIMS).
Now let’s get started! Join me for a live virtual meet-n-greet every Tuesday at 5 pm ET. Looking forward to meeting you!
