A support network is a great thing, but having a mentor – someone who has faced the same challenges as you, someone with a lifetime of experience that you can learn from – can elevate you to an entirely different level. Despite this, it can be extremely challenging for veterinarians to find mentors.

This week on the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn and Ivan are joined by Dr. Aaron Smiley, the co-founder of VetMed 2.0, to discuss the benefits of mentorship and an innovative new way to connect veterinarians to mentors.

Dr. Smiley recommends The Idea Book by Fredrick Haren.
