IndyVet internal medicine specialist earns diplomate status
Dr. Julie Trzil, a veterinary internal medicine specialist at IndyVet Emergency & Specialty Hospital (IndyVet), has been named a board-certified diplomate with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in Small Animal Internal Medicine (ACVIM-SAIM).
To achieve this designation, Dr. Trzil completed five years of post-graduate training beyond the eight years of college education normally required to obtain a veterinary degree.
Her extensive specialty training included a rotating internship in veterinary medicine and surgery at Texas A&M University, and an internal medicine specialty internship at Memphis Veterinary Specialists, which ACVIM board-certification only required one. Additionally, she completed a three-year small animal internal medicine residency program at the University of Missouri, as well as case publication requirements, and passed a rigorous certification exam.
She's also the recipient of the prestigious Redhage Memorial Scholarship Fund Award, which is presented to residents for excellence in strong client and patient relationships in veterinary medicine, and received a concurrent Master's degree in biomedical sciences this year.
ACVIM board-certification puts Dr. Trzil in an elite category of dedicated veterinarians who advance the science of veterinary internal medicine through experience and a greater knowledge of the unusual, uncommon or downright rare.
Dr. Trzil will treat a wide range of ailments including liver, kidney, infectious, autoimmune and hormonal diseases, while maintaining a special interest in respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases.
IndyVet collaborates with over 125 central Indiana veterinarians on a referral basis to provide versatile care for companion animals. Veterinarians might refer patients to IndyVet for a second opinion, a multi-disciplinary approach, to confirm diagnoses or to provide advanced treatment options.
The 24-hour veterinary facility, located on Indy's southeast side, provides services that include: emergency and critical care, surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, radioactive iodine 131 therapy, rehabilitation, and a canine & feline blood bank and donor program.
All pets are seen for emergency or referred problems only.
