Sandra A. Corr

Sandra is the Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Head of Division of Small Animal Clinical Sciences in the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Glasgow.

Following graduation, she spent six years in general small animal and equine practice in the UK, before taking a lectureship in surgery in Zimbabwe for three years. On returning to the UK, she completed a PhD on gait analysis at the Roslin Institute (Edinburgh), and then a Residency in Small Animal Surgery at Glasgow, becoming an ECVS Specialist in 2005. After several years at the Royal Veterinary College in London, and Nottingham Vet School, she returned to Glasgow University in 2016.

Sandra is a clinician-researcher, spending 50% of her time seeing surgical cases, specializing in musculoskeletal trauma and joint disease. Aside from all things surgical, her particular interests include the human-companion animal bond, and ethical questions relating to keeping animals as companions. As well as publishing widely in the surgical field, she has contributed to several book chapters on ethical topics, and co-authored a book on Companion Animal Ethics.

Sandra will participate in the teaching of the Surgery specialisation of the Master of Companion Animal Clinical Science programme.
