CareCredit - client credit

Extending credit to your clients leads to unpaid debt and losses. Use CareCredit as your alternative to giving client’s credit. If CareCredit won’t lend a client money, then you probably shouldn’t be either. Members get discounts on setting up an account

Wellbeing benefits

We have a range of programs focused on your wellbeing

Suicide Prevention Training

Launched in 2020, we are collecting data on how many NY veterinarians have taken suicide prevention programs. We want to use our support index as a focus for our promotion of suicide prevention training. Our message is that everyone can help make their community safer by taking one of these trainings, and we will be appealing to our members and non-members to help us meet a series of goals, as we drive participation higher.

24/7 Help and Confidential Counseling

Completely confidential support from our partner CorpCare who are experienced in providing specialized emotional assistance for veterinary professionals working in demanding and, at times, critical environments.

Education on Work/Life Integration

The NYSVMS Wellbeing committee has identified work/life integration as a key focus for wellbeing education. Work/life integration is at the top response in our member surveys asking members to identify their greatest challenge in their professional lives. Many other surveys show that improved work/life balance is closely linked to wellbeing.

NY Professional Assistance Program

The New York State Professional Assistance Program (PAP) assists professionals who have substance abuse problems, but who have not harmed patients or clients. Such professionals may voluntarily surrender their licenses while receiving treatment rather than face charges of professional misconduct. All applications to the program are confidential.
