Lisa Hernon BVSc MRCVS is this year’s recipient of the Rossdales Equine Studies Prize at the University of Bristol Veterinary School. This prize is awarded to 'the final year student who has demonstrated the most commitment to the clinical care of equine patients'. Professor Sidney Ricketts (pictured with Lisa) presented the prize, now in its 11th year, following the ceremony of admission of new graduates to Membership of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons at the University’s Langford House on 19th July.
Lisa said: “I have been passionate about a veterinary career for many years and enjoy working with a variety of different animals within different disciplines. I thoroughly enjoyed the final year of the degree, particularly my time in the equine hospital. I have developed a keen interest in foal medicine, particularly failure of passive transfer and infectious diseases. Horses have always been my passion but during the veterinary degree I also developed an interest in small animal medicine.”
She continued : “During the final three years of the degree I was a course representative which gave me the opportunity to pass on feedback from my cohort and help bring about positive changes, enhancing and improving the students’ learning experience.”
“I am thrilled to have been offered a role at Donaldson’s Vets, as a mixed practice veterinary surgeon in West Yorkshire. I have spent a large proportion of my extra mural studies at this practice and I am very excited to join the team. I look forward to developing my skills and knowledge as a general practitioner. I have relished my time at Bristol Veterinary School and will look back at my five years there with pride and a great sense of accomplishment. My experience has firmly cemented my dedication and passion for veterinary science and my commitment to animal care.”
Rossdales congratulates Lisa on her success and wishes her the very best for her future.
