Dr Rachel Korman
After graduating from the University of Queensland in 2000, Dr. Korman worked in small animal practice in both Australia and the United Kingdom and received a Cynthia Award by Internation Cat Care for her dedication to cats.Dr. Korman completed three years as the Feline Advisory Bureau Senior Clinical Training Scholar at the University of Bristol and has had her credentials accepted for European College Veterinary Internal Medicine and plans to sit in 2017. Furthermore, she is a member of the Feline Expert Panel, a reviewer for the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery, a contributing author to the British Small Animal Veterinary Association of Feline Practice, feline medicine consultant for the Australian Heartworm Advisory Panel, tutor for the Feline Medicine Distance Education Course (University of Sydney) and lectures extensively throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia.
Korman's research into acute phase proteins in feline infection won the best clinical research abstract presentation at the BSAVA Congress in 2011. Some of Dr. Korman's particular interests include feline haematological disease, geriatric medicine and live disease.Since Dr. Korman knew you could be a "doctor for animals" at the ripe age of four, she knew that was exactly what she wanted to do. Her passion stems from the bond between animals and their owners and the affection that dogs and cats show to complete strangers (and cats for their strength of personality!)
At home she shares her home with her husband, two darling children, Professor Moriarty (a Burmese with a mind for evil deeds), Maus (a partially sighted British shorthair) and Wombat (a deaf, ex London Street Dog with an indiscriminate appetite). Any form of free time is divided (unequally) between toddler, baby, dog, cats, husband, garden, photography and music. The Korman household has officially been declared full!Veterinary Specialist Services proudly supports the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, particularly the treatment, care and research of the Australian Koala Community.
