School of Veterinary Medicine appoints Head of Veterinary Education

Professor Gail Anderson to swap the sunny shores of St Kitts for Surrey.

Professor Anderson joins the University of Surrey from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St Kitts, in the West Indies, where she was Associate Dean of Veterinary Education.

A specialist surgeon and researcher with experience in universities and private practice in both Australia and Canada, Professor Anderson will work alongside Professor Christopher Proudman, the inaugural Head of School of Veterinary Medicine, whose appointment was announced last month, to drive forward the University’s plans for the new School, due to open in 2014.

Professor Lisa Roberts, Dean of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Surrey, said: “I very much look forward to working closely with Professor Anderson in her new role.  She has made an outstanding contribution to veterinary education, and I have great confidence that she will help us achieve our vision for training the veterinary leaders of the future.”

The University is currently looking for veterinary experts to join the School of Veterinary Medicine, to help train and inspire the next generation of pioneering vets. To find out more about the job opportunities available, visit our dedicated School of Veterinary Medicine careers website.
