If you ask new veterinary school graduates today what they're looking for in a first job, chances are you'll hear about mentorship. Seth welcomes on two veterinary superstars, Dr. Dan Markwalder and Dr. Adam Conroy of MarkRoy Consulting, to talk about the importance of mentorship, what to look for in a mentor, and how great mentorship can impact your life as a veterinarian.
These revolutionary veterinary consultants met long before Dr. Dan Markwalder could even call Dr. Adam Conroy “doctor.”
Their story began when Adam worked as a kennel attendant in one of Dan’s Chicago-area clinics.
The pair reunited in 2005 when Adam took on a role as an associate veterinarian at one of Dan’s practices. Adam quickly became a partner in the group, and the two forged ahead into launching more hospitals together.
Currently, there are 14 general practices and 2 emergency hospitals under their guidance in the Chicago area.
The success that Dan & Adam have gleaned through mentorship and the development of leadership skills is what inspired the formation of MarkRoy Consulting.
