Barnes, Katherine individual record
Clinical Assistant Professor

As a clinician and an educator, I focus on providing the highest quality care to hospital patients, delivering clinically based practical education to veterinary students, interns, and residents, and helping to advance the field of veterinary surgery through clinically oriented research projects. Veterinary medicine is a constantly evolving field and learning is never finished upon graduation. As such, it is critically important to guide students to become lifelong learners, to critically evaluate new information, and to make informed decisions on how to treat patients after graduation. As a clinician, I am also in the position to utilize advanced techniques for treatment of common (and uncommon) small animal orthopedic conditions, help identify solutions to clinical problems, and comprehensively and objectively evaluate the outcome after treatment of clinical patients.
