Dr Katherine SIMPSON

Primary Care Veterinarian


Dr Katherine Simpson graduated from the University of Liverpool with a degree in Veterinary Science with Distinction in 2010. During her studies, she was also awarded a First-Class Honours intercalated degree in Veterinary Pathology from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2008.

After graduation she completed a one-year rotating internship at a multidisciplinary referral centre in the UK. She subsequently worked in both primary care and referral hospitals, and since 2016 worked as an out-of-hours emergency veterinarian in the UK. In 2019 she obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care with Distinction, and later that year she was awarded Advanced Practitioner status in Emergency and Critical Care by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) in the UK.

Katherine enjoys teaching and mentoring, and during her previous job she was involved with coaching emergency veterinarians enrolled on her company’s clinical training programmes, delivering clinical talks to primary care practice teams, and teaching the University of Surrey final year veterinary students. Over the course of her career, she has published several scientific papers in veterinary journals, and she has presented her clinical abstracts at European veterinary conferences. Her clinical interests include emergency and critical care, analgesia, and neurology.

Katherine is looking forward to developing her clinical skills in critical care at CityU VMC, and to providing her hospitalised patients with the best possible care. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling the world, hiking, keeping fit, photography, and meditation.
