Assessing the Value of Registered Veterinary Technicians in Clinical Practice

The OAVT, with the help of ACER Consulting, has created an online survey as a part of a larger study. The primary objective of this survey is to explore the roles and value that Registered Veterinary Technicians bring to clinical practice, and how this differs from other staff who may perform veterinary technician duties for the practice. Our goal is to learn how Registered Veterinary Technicians contribute economic value and capacity to workplaces.

Specifically, we want to help you determine how the talent, knowledge, and skills of RVTs can be best utilized to ensure that veterinary clinics continue to grow as viable businesses that are able to fully meet the clinical needs of patients.

Who should complete this survey?

The survey is intended to be filled out once per veterinary clinic by someone who has knowledge of the clinic’s services, revenue, and roles and functions of veterinary staff, such as the clinic manager/owner.

This survey will remain open for response from June 18th, 2018 until September 30th, 2018. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us; any information you share will be strictly confidential and completely anonymized for future aggregate reports.

Your responses to the survey are crucial to the success of this project, which represents an effort to help promote RVT value to veterinary practice.
