Pride Veterinary Centre specialist veterinary radiologist Ian Jones has been newly qualified as a diagnostic imaging specialist.
Ian was recently awarded his Diploma from the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (ECVDI).
Ian is one of three specialists in this field at Pride Veterinary Centre who work closely with other specialist services to provide veterinary care. Pride Veterinary Centre also has specialists in surgery, medicine, anaesthesia, ophthalmology, cardiology and neurology, providing a wide range of expert knowledge.
Ian graduated from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in 2004 and completed a rotating internship there in 2005. He returned to the RVC to complete a PhD in 2012 and a Senior Clinical Training Scholarship in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in 2016. Since qualifying, Ian has worked in a range of clinics across the veterinary profession, including time spent in charity practice.
Ian worked at Pride Veterinary Centre for two years. He said: “I am very lucky to be working with such a great team at Pride. Our exciting and varied caseload means that no two days are ever quite the same. It’s also great that we get to work with veterinary students from the University of Nottingham who are a huge help. Teaching keeps you on your toes and it’s great to know that we are helping to train the next generation of vets!”
Operations manager, Steve Wilson, added, “We are delighted by Ian’s recent success in becoming a specialist in diagnostic imaging. As well as a great deal of skill, it also requires a lot of hard work to attain the level of specialist. This adds even further to the level and quality of service we can offer our patients at Pride.”
