The first episode of dvm360 LIVE!™ will air Thursday, April 7th, 2022 at 12 pm EST.
My parents told me that I was born with a microphone and always had a fondness for animals. That sounds about right. As I have traveled through my career as a small animal private practitioner, I realized that every interaction and experience was a genuine performance. Clients are expecting me to deliver an award-winning performance regardless of the news that I deliver to them. I tell my colleagues that when they open the exam room door, they are “live in 3-2-1” as I count them down. Medicine in general, regardless of species, is an art. It’s truly a delicate performance of balancing the science with the bedside manner so that compliance and communication are in check.
Because many of you are speakers in the veterinary industry, you also understand the art of a lecture. Whether you are lecturing at a veterinary institution or facilitating a discussion at a continuing education conference, you are providing a performance that you hope is impactful, memorable, and authentic. Having lectured for many years as an adjunct professor for veterinary assistants and nursing students, I always enjoyed that creative autonomy we have as speakers. It sets the stage for education to be delivered with humor, fun, and memories.
Social media is another fantastic way of setting the stage for delivering education and humor in an innovative way. I enjoy following you and learning about incredible cases and innovative technology and laughing at your fantastic creativity. I can’t think of another fun way of learning and connecting to our colleagues, students, and pet parents than in the world of social media. As both a TikTok creator (@dr.adamchristman52) and Instagrammer (adam_christman), I truly took my love for education and creativity to a whole new level for my personal journey. Connecting with you and our pet parents has been incredible.
So, let’s recap the ways in which we learn and enjoy receiving content:
- Exam rooms and veterinary hospital (check)
- Reading in person and in the virtual setting (check)
- The social media space (check)
