Your Successful & Happy Career in Vet Medicine

VetX:Thrive exists because we believe being a vet can and should be the best job ever. But we also know that the challenges you face in practice each day can take their toll and leave you feeling burned out or disenchanted. The reality is that being a vet is also a hard job and the clinical training you received at vet school is simply not enough to ensure a great career.

In fact, there is another skill set that is so much more important. The non-clinical skills (or life skills as we call them) are things like emotional intelligence, the smarts to say the right words at the right time, and the ability to manage your time. These, and many besides, are the skills that will provide you with the foundation for a happy and healthy career as a vet. The great news is that all such skills are covered in 12 core teaching modules with the full Thrive package.

The Thrive Lite experience will give you access to the first core module of non-clinical teaching: Planning your Career and Smashing F.E.A.R. You even have access to highlights from the Mentoring sessions, and selected Rockstar sessions (where you can hear top tips from Rockstars of the veterinary profession).

VetX:Thrive teaches non-clinical skills exclusively. But this is so much more than an educational platform. This is a practical toolkit where you will have access to templates, frameworks and worksheets to help you build and execute your plan. Plus, you'll be part of a global support network - an invaluable space of positive encouragement. 

And finally, you'll be learning in a RACE and Vetted accredited community where you can get 12 hours of structured education credit. With Thrive Lite, you will gain insight into the first hour of this accredited education.

How does the Thrive Lite experience sound to you?

We hope you will find this taster insightful, informative and fun! Ultimately, we created Thrive Lite because we know that being a veterinarian can and should be one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet, but often it is simply not. Unfortunately, too many vets struggle, become burnt out and end up bouncing out of the profession. This is because veterinarians have limited awareness of and access to the non-clinical skills required to make their careers successful and happy. We hope that our Thrive Lite course can raise your awareness of the need for non-clinical skills, and will give you an accessible taster of the full Thrive package.
