FRANK Communication Workshop | VetGirl Veterinary CE Blog


Communication is a clinical skill…

Frank™ Workshop
It’s likely that you entered the veterinary profession with little – or no – practical experience in effective client communication. The Frank™ workshop teaches veterinarians critical communications skills in the same fashion that they would learn other clinical skills – they are taught the concepts, and then practice them in a clinical setting with patients and clients. This evidenced-based, interactive program uses best practices in teaching communication, including demonstration and observation of communication skills, realistic client portrayal, constructive feedback and video reflection.

“After the two day interactive workshop, I came home with new communication skills
determined to do a better job at listening to my clients and letting them talk.”
– FRANK workshop participant

• Participate in a day-and-a-half of intensive experiential learning.
