2018 New Residents and Interns Join UWVC, SVM

Each year, the UW School of Veterinary Medicine and UW Veterinary Care welcome a new group of interns and residents — graduate veterinarians who come here to learn from our exceptional specialists while providing top-notch clinical care and services. They are the best and brightest and bring tremendous value to the animals they treat.

Interns are veterinarians who are dedicating a year of their careers to additional training. Rotating interns work with multiple specialty services but spend most of their time in emergency and critical care, and specialty interns focus on one particular area or service. Residents are veterinarians who are training to become specialists, typically dedicating two to three years to a particular specialty area in veterinary medicine.

Here’s a look at this year’s new names and faces.
