Last Friday 5th October, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) bestowed Fellowship status upon Rossdales partners Pete Ramzan and Lewis Smith during the RCVS Fellowship Day.
Held in the prestigious surroundings of The Royal Institution in London, the RCVS welcomed the third cohort of Fellows to be awarded under the new RCVS Fellowship initiative and provided a forum for Fellows to meet and exchange their views and ideas. Fellowship is the highest level of membership of the RCVS for members who have demonstrated significant original contribution in their subject.
Pete, who is a longstanding and highly respected member of our team of racing vets, has been a partner at Rossdales since 2005 and was awarded Fellowship for Meritorious Contributions to Clinical Practice. Pete's clinical research interest is the early detection and improved management of racehorse orthopaedic injuries and his work has been published extensively in peer-reviewed journals. In 2014 CRC Press published his book The Racehorse: A Veterinary Manual - the first comprehensive textbook wholly dedicated to veterinary management of the racehorse.
Lewis, who is a specialist surgeon at Rossdales Equine Hospital and joined the partnership in 2016, was awarded Fellowship for the production of a thesis titled The Use of Intrasynovial Corticosteroids in Equine Thoroughbred Racehorses: Analysis of Safety, Efficacy and Racing Performance. Several of the papers from the thesis are currently in press or undergoing peer review.
