Associate Professor in Large Animal Internal Medicine and Critical Care, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
Dr Gayle Hallowell graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1999 with a first class honours degree in Zoology (BA then MA) and then achieved her veterinary degree with a distinction in 2002. On completion of her veterinary degree she undertook a 12 month junior clinical training scholarship in equine studies and then a three-year senior clinical training scholarship in equine medicine and critical care at the Royal Veterinary College. During her residency she became more interested and involved in the diagnosis and management of food animal and camelid internal medicine cases. These posts led to the acquisition of an RCVS certificate in veterinary anaesthesia and a diploma in Large animal internal medicine awarded by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. Whilst at the Royal Veterinary College, Dr Hallowell was also employed as a clinical instructor in cross-species anaesthesia and as a Lecturer in Eqwuine Medicine. In 2007, Dr Hallowell undertook a three year resarch scholarship at the University of Nottingham funded by the Horserace Betting Levy Board investigating aortic valve prolapse in the Horse resulting in the award of PhD in November 2010. In 2007 Dr Hallowell was also made Special Lecturer in Large Animal Internal Medicine and Critical Care at the University of Nottingham and contributed to design and delivery of various areas of the curriculum. In 2010, Dr Hallowell received tenure at the University of Nottingham and is appointed as Lecturer in Large Animal Medicine and Critical Care. She is module leader for the Equine Practice Rotation in final year and also contributes to the Farm skills rotation in addition to delivering teaching material in all parts of the undergraduate course on a variety of basic science and clinical topics. She is also Sub-dean for Continuing Education and is currently designing a CPD and a clinical post-graduate qualification prorgramme. Recent qualification acquisitions include Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, RCVS specialist status in Equine Internal Medicine, Associate Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and Diplomate of the American College of Emergency and Critical Care.
Clinical and research interests:
In addition to Dr Hallowell's clinical and research interest in equine cardiology, she is interested in large animal criticial care, particularly conditions causing cardiovascular and gastro-intestinal pertubations and fluid therapy. Additionally, she is passionate about large animal diagnostic imaging, particularly the value of ultrasound for diagnosis of disease. Other clinical areas of specific interest include large animal and equine ophthalmology, neurology and anaesthesia.
