How well a practice manages inventory affects patient care, team stress and the financial health of the practice. Consider: Have you ever reached for an item, but it was out of stock? Has the preferred treatment supply been "on order" when the need for the item is now? Or, do inventory items regularly expire before they can be used? Are sales representatives utilized to their full potential as an inventory resource? Are there too many hands in the proverbial inventory pot, yet nothing ever seems to add up and no one takes responsibility?

Inventory: It's the Basics That Count explains how to tame the inventory beast. This 3-week course will cover the basics of inventory management such as how to select an individual to oversee inventory as well as the processes involved. If you have ever wondered how to solve inventory problems and increase accountability and profitability, this course will provide all the "basics that count."


On completion of this course the learner will be able to:
1. Develop an inventory manual
2. Consolidate inventory, maximize turnover rate, and define reorder points and quantities
3. Define and implement a central storage location
4. Determine when bulk orders are an economical investment for the practice
5. Define direct and indirect costs associated with inventory and use the minimum profitability analysis to determine appropriate product mark up
6. Identify potential causes of discrepancies
7. Manage controlled substances

on behalf of VetMedTeam

Veterinary medicine is the career path that Leslie chose at a very young age. As a five-year-old child, she rescued baby rabbits from the family dog after it disrupted their nest. Leslie cared for the survivors and sent them on their way when they became stronger. This was the point at which Leslie knew what she wanted to do in life. After eighteen years of clinical experience in managing veterinary patient care as a Registered Veterinary Technician and Certified Veterinary Practice Manager, Leslie feels honored to be able to give back to the profession and to contribute to the development of colleagues in this field.

Leslie has had the opportunity to experience all areas of the veterinary practice. In 1995, Leslie completed an Associate in Applied Science in Veterinary Medical Technology and upon passing the NVTE became a Registered Veterinary Technician. After several years working in practice and a multitude of continuing education, hard work and training, she was given the designation as Practice Manager. In 2001, Leslie began working as the Hospital Administrator for a group of veterinarians that owned several practices, one of which being a 24 hour emergency care center. In 2008, Leslie earned the designation of Certified Veterinary Practice Manager. Leslie has a genuine passion for the advancement of training and education for managers, technicians, assistants and client support staff.

Leslie is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have one vivacious young daughter that keeps them on their toes. Leslie and her family recently lost their beloved dog Chloe after 15 years and now share their home with a curmudgeon old kitty named “Mr. Willis”. When not writing courses for VetMedTeam, Leslie enjoys boating on the lake, photography, stained glass design and spending time with her family.
