Visiting Scholars


Through the support of ongoing research by others and the clinical research of our own team, we are actively involved in research and clinical trials at all times. This involvement in the advancement of veterinary science allows us to apply the most current research and knowledge to the benefit of our clients and patients.

We also actively support our neurology residents with their ongoing individual and collaborative research projects, encouraging the development of their keen research skills to foster a long-term shared enthusiasm for advancing the care and treatment of all neurology patients.

The BVNS Residency Program

Our commitment to advancement includes sharing our knowledge and passion with the next generation of veterinary neurologists through the BVNS Residency Program. This program is highly selective and candidates must meet rigorous standards to be accepted. Once selected, our residents play a vital role in every aspect of our service providing substantial benefits to clients and patients.

Our Residency Coordinator, Dr. Jarboe, oversees the program and can be contacted with any questions.
