“This course was excellent. I am a business owner DVM looking to start a separate rehabilitation practice in conjunction with our general practice. I brought my business partner/hospital manager who has no rehabilitation experience. She also found the course excellent, particularly how the business perspective associated with the various permutations of a rehabilitation practice was presented."
– Erin True, DVM
Elk Grove, California


“All the instructors were really great! I loved that each came from a different background, with different practice styles, and from different parts of the country."
– Sofia Brickman, DVM, CCRT, cVMA
Los Angeles, California


“I registered for the business course thinking I might incorporate some rehab into my practice. I left with a business plan for starting a canine rehabiliation center that I fully intend to use."
