Leading Willows Clinician Becomes A Double-board Specialist
A leading vet at one of the UK’s top small animal hospitals is celebrating after becoming a double-board specialist.
Laura Bree, who is part of the expert team at Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service, in Solihull, West Midlands, has added Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) recognition to her European diploma in small animal medicine.
Laura moved to the UK from Ireland last year and is delighted to successfully attain specialist status from the RCVS.
She said: “It’s been quite a first year for me moving to Willows from Dublin and now being recognised as an RCVS specialist.
“It’s proving a great move for me and I’m really enjoying myself at the hospital and exploring the local area, which has now become home.”
Laura completed her veterinary undergraduate degree at University College, Dublin, in 2013 and then completed a small animal internal medicine internship in 2014.
Afterwards, she enrolled on a four-year internal medicine residency-combined post-graduate doctorate programme in the University Veterinary Hospital of University College, Dublin.
She achieved her European Diploma in small animal internal medicine in 2018.
