A new partnership between the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wharton School, the university’s business school, launched in May.
The Leading Veterinary Entrepreneurship program is designed to be a continuing education opportunity for veterinary clinicians, scientists, technologists, academicians, and innovators to explore the keystones of successful entrepreneurship, according to a university press release.
Penn Vet isn’t alone in making connections between veterinary medicine and the business world. The Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine launched the Center for Veterinary Business and Entrepreneurship in April to include business in veterinary academia. The program is a joint effort between the veterinary college and the SC Johnson College of Business.
The Veterinary Entrepreneurship Academy has also organized a 10-week program that will match 20 students from seven different institutions with startup companies this summer. The goal of the program is to increase innovation within the veterinary profession. The organization got its start at Texas A&M University, the founding academic partner of the organization, in 2016.
