CVMA Business Management Program (BMP) Surveys

The CVMA Business Management program (BMP), in collaboration with the provincial veterinary medical associations, distributes surveys throughout the year to produce important benchmarking reports.  These reports are intended to support every veterinarian, regardless of employment type and to assist in veterinary practice management.

The Practice Owners Economic survey gathers data on revenue, expenses, income, number of current and new clients, fees, and DVM and non-DVM staff compensation.  Benefits to completing a survey include receiving an individual Practice Diagnostic Report and a complimentary Practice Value Estimate. The data from the survey produces the Suggested Fee Guides, the Non-DVM Wage Report, and the National Economic Report.

The survey on Compensation and Benefits for Associate Veterinarians investigates all aspects of compensation and benefits and was designed to examine the compensation and benefits provided to associate (non-owner) veterinarians in private practice and examines several characteristics (type of practice, years in practice, location, types of compensation, etc.).  The data gathered produces the Report of Compensation and Benefits for Associate Veterinarians.

The survey of veterinarians employed in government, industry, and academe allows these veterinarians to compare their earnings, hours, and benefits with peers and the results produce the Report of Veterinarians in Government, Industry, and Academe.

All reports can be found under the Business Management Program section of the CVMA website.
