What is the P10 program?

  • A collaborative initiative to cultivate leadership capacity in recent graduates
  • A learning experience that will benefit the individual both professionally and personally
  • A network of peers with similar challenges and colleagues that want to help P10 participants succeed
  • An opportunity to enhance interpersonal, financial & leadership skills that are imperative to a successful veterinary medicine career
