The online Veterinary Law & Ethics course provides an in-depth study of legal and ethical matters applicable to the veterinary profession. Using real-world examples, it is designed for veterinarians, practice managers/owners and veterinary students.
The course is delivered in eight sections, available as a 20-hour course or in multi-section modules.
Dr. Roasa has earned his veterinary and Master’s degrees from Texas A&M University and his law degree from the University of Nebraska. He has worked for Banfield in Phoenix and has owned and operated a mixed animal practice in the mountains of Colorado. He has co-founded and co-owns a group of practices in Nebraska, operates a law practice and delivers on-line CE via drip.vet. He is the past president of the American Veterinary Medical Law Association and a national co-advisor to the Veterinary Business Management Association. He serves on the board of directors of the Mark Morris Institute and on the advisory board to Veterinary Team Brief.
The things I learned that will help me succeed personally and professionally as a result of new ideas or material in the course included the importance of keeping immaculate accurate records, thorough communication, having a good lawyer, having personal and professional accountability, not burning bridges with colleagues, and the value of law in our profession.
