TONY MORAVEC, DVM, of David City, Neb., recently completed a two-year continuing education program designed to enhance the business, communication, and planning skills of busy animal health professionals. The Executive Veterinary Program (EVP), established by the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, has long been a premier credential for elite food animal practitioners. Dr. Moravec, the Owner and CEO of Driftwood Vet and DVT Services, LLC in Lincoln, Neb., was among the first cohort for the EVP in Beef Health Management, which united the expertise of the University of Illinois in post-graduate education with the expertise at Kansas State University in beef cattle production and health management.
Dr. Moravec completed the Executive Veterinary Program (EVP) with a focus on beef health management; this program consisted of 10 two-day interactive modules. The program covered essential aspects of beef production and health maintenance to enhance the management, consultation, and problem-solving skills faced by veterinarians in the field of beef medicine. There were 37 veterinarians from 16 states and Canada that completed the program with Dr. Moravec.
The University of Illinois has been cultivating veterinary leaders and innovators in food production systems through the unique EVP model since 1991. The award-winning program uses nationally-recognized experts from academia and industry to deliver practice relevant knowledge. Since the program began in 1991, there have been 255 graduates from seven EVP classes.
Dr. Moravec earned a DVM degree from Kansas State University in 2001. He graduated from Aquinas Catholic in 1993.
