Southern Counties Veterinary Specialists

A huge well done to Southern Counties Veterinary Specialists' (SCVS) neurology resident Filipa Lourinho DVM MSci MRCVS who won an award at the recent ECVN congress. She received the John Presthus Award for best oral presentation by a resident, giving a talk on 'Clinical Features and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Characteristics of Presumptive Constrictive Myelopathy in 26 Pugs'. Great work Filipa! 

Filipa graduated from University of Évora in Portugal in 2012. During her degree she also spent a year studying at University of Santiago de Compostela in Lugo, Spain. Shortly before finishing her studies, among other externships, she completed a six-month neurology externship in a referral centre in Lisbon, where she developed a special interest in that medical area. After spending a year working in a small animal practice in Portugal, Filipa has then moved to Newcastle, to work in a busy small animal hospital as a general practitioner. Filipa's areas of major interest include neurology and internal medicine. Filipa has completed a one-year mixed internship, then a one-year neurology specific internship at SCVS. She began her three-year residency in neurology in July 2017, studying towards her European Diploma in Veterinary Neurology.
