After receiving her veterinary degree from Cornell University (CU) in 1984, Dr. Kathleen Linn completed a one-year internship at Colorado State University (CSU) and then went into private practice for three years in Jamestown, N.Y. She returned to CSU for a surgical residency and master’s degree, and in 1994, she became board certified with the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
For nearly a decade, Dr. Linn held various teaching and clinical roles at CSU, CU and the University of Wisconsin before joining the WCVM faculty in 2003 as an associate professor in the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences. She is also part of the small animal surgery team at the WCVM Veterinary Medical Centre.
Dr. Linn’s professional and research interests include avian and canine orthopedics as well as soft tissue injuries.
