Welcome to the Veterinary Breakroom! In the breakroom, Alyssa Watson, DVM, and Beth Molleson, DVM, will be discussing the important, relevant topics affecting veterinarians today. In this episode, Dr. Alyssa and Dr. Beth exchange views on what a midlevel position—similar to a human nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant—might look like in veterinary medicine. Programs aimed at matriculating veterinary paraprofessionals are already popping up at accredited CVMs. Would this position help alleviate the current crunch in the profession—or just add more stress and debt? Join us in the veterinary breakroom as we wade into the middle of the midlevel veterinary professional debate.
