Emma Shipman

Clinical Assistant Professor in Equine Medicine, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences



I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 1999 and after a one year internship at the RVC I worked in predominantly equine practice in Leicestershire, gaining my Certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia. I then completed a three year residency in Large Animal Internal Medicine at the Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center, Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine and obtained my American Diploma in Large Animal Internal Medicine.

I returned the UK in 2006 and worked at the RVC as a lecturer in Equine Medicine and then set up an equine first opinion practice in Sussex. I came to the University of Nottingham in 2008 as a Clinical Assistant Professor in Equine Medicine.
