VMG Groups deliver success through collaboration to practices with veterinarian ownership.

Veterinary Study Groups (VSG), the umbrella organization for 50 Veterinary Management Groups (VMG) operating throughout the United States and Canada, announces it has surpassed 1,500 practices. These hospitals are owned by more than 1,100 members serving the companion animal and equine segments of the profession. The practices include 5,600 full-time equivalent veterinarians on staff, approximately 29,000 employees and greater than $3 billion in aggregate revenue.

Each of the 50 VMGs consists of 16 to 22 members who meet bi-annually to share management experiences, ideas, problems, solutions, and successes. Mutual support and motivation help each member to attain higher levels of success as practice managers and leaders. These practice owners gain access to intellectual capital, purchasing programs and professional development resources typically available only to the largest corporate practice groups.

“Participation in a VMG provides a contextualized learning opportunity, enabling members to evaluate strategic and operational concepts within a trusted intelligence network,” cites Steve Curvey, Chief Operating Officer of VSG. “We are very proud to have reached this milestone. Our member practices now account for more than 10% of the full-time equivalent veterinarians in the US and Canada and are among the most respected, most admired in our profession.”

VSG President Link Welborn, DVM, DABVP states, “As a participant in a group for over 20 years, I know how much of an incredibly positive impact VMG membership has had on my practices as well as me personally and professionally. It is very exciting to see so many VMG members and their 1,500 practices reap the benefits of VMG membership.”
