What is probably the first and only trainee program for veterinarians in German small animal medicine starts this August at doc4pets.

It is now possible to start specialist veterinary training for small and pet animals at the same time and, at the same time, to receive business/legal training in order to later take over your own practice as managing director and potential partner.

While starting a career as a trainee has established itself as an attractive alternative for potential managers in the commercial and engineering sectors, a comparable concept does not yet exist for veterinarians. FTÄ Doreen Succow on the concept: “Based on the specialist veterinary training requirements of the LTK Baden-Württemberg, we have developed an ATF-recognized training concept for our future managers.” And Co-CEO Dipl.-Ök. Sven Jan Arndt, LL.M. adds: “In addition to medical know-how, our trainees are also given the business management skills to run their own practice. From practice for practice.”

Such a trainee program offers many advantages - in addition to insights into different specialist areas and branches, intensive and structured support is provided by the FTÄ Succow, head of training/best practice, who has been explicitly delegated for this purpose. This creates a network of future managing directors in the group who maintain a lively professional exchange - synergies at its best .

In addition, a 4-day full-time week, no 24-hour shifts, bonus programs based on BPT also allow enough freedom for a good work-life balance.

More information about the concept and how to apply:

About Us:

doc4pets GmbH is an owner-managed group of five small animal practices in southwest Germany. With its innovative and disruptive approach to veterinary succession, it offers the veterinary doctor willing to leave a practice succession with qualified senior doctors from the doc4pets family. The latter in turn have the opportunity to participate in the acquired practice and later take over the majority. The focus is on the idea of ​​highly qualified freelancers, who are supported by the group in purchasing, marketing, accounting, etc. This means he can concentrate fully on his patients.

Due to its constant growth, doc4pets is always looking for veterinarians specializing in small animal medicine who would like to develop further in the future as an expert in a small animal center or as a successor in a veterinary practice. You can find out more about the concept at:

doc4pets has decided to now hold essential training courses with excellent lecturers in our own practices. This is primarily for the following reasons:

  • logistically easier to handle for all employees (no overnight stays or long journeys)
  • learn in a familiar environment with existing material
  • smaller learning groups that also work together later
  • Great topic loss - focused on the wishes of our veterinarians

Today it started with Dr. Michael Koch with our surgeons in the area of ​​osteosynthesis (bone surgery):

Dr. Michael Koch with his protégés

Dr. Michael Koch is a recognized and well-known surgeon who has attended many renowned training events.

We at doc4pets want to further expand this very practice-oriented training series with experts from other specialist areas.

In addition, our veterinarians have the opportunity to attend ongoing webinars/online courses with ATF hours Vetinare

Improve International is another training partner where senior physicians and potential managers have the opportunity to obtain an internationally recognized qualification as a general practitioner, for example.

In the long term, this in conjunction with our in-house mentoring is intended to ensure, in addition to learning on the job, the professional development of each member of our veterinary team in their area of ​​interest, which ultimately also benefits our little patients.

Relevantly experienced speakers who would like to visit us in Karlsruhe are welcome to contact Mr. Sven Jan Arndt .
