Associate ProfessorDiagnostic Imaging    

Tom completed a three year residency program at Washington State University. After completion of his residency Tom went back to Western Canada, working in private practice for Moore and Company Veterinary Services in the equine field as well as Western Veterinary Specialist and Emergency Centre in the small animal field. During this time he developed a keen interest in diagnostic imaging, performing radiography, ultrasound and nuclear medicine studies. After three years Tom returned to Washington State University to become a member of the radiology faculty. Prior to his history as a veterinarian Tom was a groom/trainer of thoroughbred racehorses, spanning from the early 1980’s through the late 1990’s. This history and vested interest that drove his participation in a two year study of racehorse injuries in the thoroughbred racehorse during his residency at WSU.
