Certified Veterinary Practice Manager Metro Vet Chicago

Congratulations: Certified Veterinary Practice Manager, Samantha Montalta

We have some exciting news to share! 

If you have not heard, our amazing Practice Manager, Samantha Montalta officially passed her exam and is now a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager!

Getting certified as a Veterinary Practice Manager is a huge undertaking. The requirements include 3 years of experience as a veterinary practice manager, 18 college credits in business, science, and communication, 48 hours of continuing education in management, and 4 letters of recommendation to take the exam.

The exam tests in 5 areas, HR, Finance, Law & Ethics, Marketing, and Organization of the hospital. There are less than 800 people in the US that are certified as CVPM. Samantha managed all this while in the middle of a pandemic, working with her team at Metropolitan Veterinary Center in Chicago. She leveraged their support to attend classes at Purdue (that were canceled when the pandemic hit) and study. Samantha thanks all of her colleagues for contributing to this significant achievement. 

With everything going on, it has been busy, and things have been a huge adjustment with curbside, but Sam wanted to thank each and every one of her teammates for allowing her to be gone while at Purdue, studying, or just helping where they could throughout this process. She couldn't have done this without the help and support from each of them and the help they gave so she could gain more experience and learn and grow every day.
