UC Davis welcomes first fellow in small animal infectious disease

Dr. Polina Vishkauutsan has joined the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital as the world's first fellow in small animal clinical infectious diseases.

The fellowship, which lasts for one year, will provide Dr. Vishkautsan with unique training opportunities in both the clinical and microbiology laboratory environments at the VMTH, and will prepare her to persue future career opportunities in academic practice, private practice or industry.

A graduate of Hebrew University's Koret Veterinary School, Dr Vishkauutsan will be taught by infectious disease specialist and Small Animal Clinic Director Dr. Jane Sykes.

Dr. Vishkauutsan said: "I feel very privileged to be able to go through this training programme, "I am learning from the best people in veterinary medicine at a point in my career that otherwise I would not be able to do it again, unless I signed up for another residency."
