Here is the second part of our two part podcast series on “Lessons Learned at the EBMS” seminar from September, 2015. In this episode I chat with Dr. Monty McInturff of the Tennesse Equine Hospital , Whitney Hischier, of the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley and Dr. Jessica Trichel, of Live Oak Bank,
I created McKee-Pownall Equine Services with my wife, Dr. Melissa McKee, in 2002. Since then we have grown to include 4 equine hospitals. Even as a veterinary student I have had a strong interest in the business side of veterinary practice. I realized that having a strong business foundation in a hospital or clinic will give the framework to hire the best vets and staff and provide the best medical care. You can’t do that if the veterinary owner hates the business side of things or if the veterinary hospital is struggling to pay its bills because of poor financial management.
