Dr. Nigel Smith
Dr. Nigel Smith graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 1996 and went on to work across the UK before joining mixed practice.
He later returned to London where he focused on companion animal care in charity and private settings. For almost 20 years, he regularly provided primary and emergency out-of-hours care to the London area of 600 sq. In this time, he worked in the Blue Cross Animals’ Hospital for 17 years. The Blue Cross Animals’ Hospital in Victoria is one of the world’s first charity veterinary 24-hour hospitals. Whilst working in the Blue Cross, Nigel taught to UK undergraduate students and qualified international veterinarians who sought extramural learning. Nigel worked alongside and learned from Royal Veterinary College clinicians whose undergraduate students also undertake extramural studies in the Blue Cross.
Having thoroughly enjoyed a dynamic, learning and teaching environment he moved to private practice as Lead Veterinarian where he bolstered practice standards and caseloads. In 2020, he returned to education and is currently an essential veterinary skills laboratory instructor in the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in addition to working as a general practitioner in Ross University Veterinary Clinic.
