What is the Power of Ten?

Are you looking to make your mark in the profession and take your career to new heights? Apply for our Power of Ten leadership Program! Our annual leadership program is designed to help recent veterinary medicine graduates develop foundational skills in leadership, communication, and business.

Power of Ten cultivates leadership capacity by providing learning experiences to young veterinarians. The program offers engagement in seminars, meetings, and activities to participants, which will provide valuable information and experiential learning to deepen their understanding of the profession, colleagues, clients, and themselves.

How It Works

Each year, ten participants are selected from an applicant pool to participate in the program. Selected applicants join each other for four learning experiences and mentoring sessions over the course of a year. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in workshops, webinars, and other unique offerings. All successful applicants will then be publicly honored during their graduation at our FVMA Annual Conference.

The FVMA will provide full tuition scholarships and covers expenses for participants’ meals, refreshments, and lodging when necessary to attend multi-day events.

We understand your busy schedule, so our in-person learning experiences are designed to minimize disruptions to your working hours. The entire program is designed to garner support from practice owners who recognize their key responsibility in developing veterinary leaders.
