Sheila Carrera-Justiz, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)
Clinical Associate Professor & Service Chief, Neurology
University of Florida
Dr. Sheila Carrera-Justiz completed her DVM at the University of Florida in 2005, followed by a rotating small animal internship at the University of Missouri and a neurology specialty internship at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital of San Diego. She then completed a residency in Neurology at Tufts University and attained board certification in 2010. She obtained the Neurosurgery Certificate of Training from the ACVIM in 2013. She spent a few years in private practice before returning to academia. Her professional interests lie in novel neurosurgical approaches, advanced imaging techniques and clinical teaching.
Christine Thomson, BVSc (Hons), PhD, DACVIM (Neurology), DECVN
Animal Referral Hospital Brisbane
Dr. Chris Thomson graduated from University of Melbourne, in 1983, completed a small animal medical and surgical neurology residency at North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine and a PhD in neuroscience at University of Glasgow, UK. She worked at Melbourne, Glasgow, and Massey Universities, and latterly, in the Veterinary Medicine Department at University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Dr. Thomson recently swapped Alaska’s -30 degree C lifestyle for a +30 degree C one in Queensland, Australia and is working in private referral practice at the Animal Referral Hospital, Brisbane. Along with her colleague, Dr. Caroline Hahn, they’ve distilled decades of study and teaching about clinical neuroanatomy and neurological localization into ‘Veterinary Neuroanatomy: a clinical Approach (Elsevier 2012).
