Tom McParland BVetMed DiplACVS (LA) MRCVS
Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Surgeons

Veterinary Surgeon

Tom graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2015, after which he travelled to Mississippi State University in America where he completed a 1 year hospital internship, followed by a 1 year surgical internship. Tom then returned to the UK to work as an ambulatory veterinarian in the south east for 2 years. Tom was then offered a surgical residency back in America at North Carolina State University in 2019. He moved to Raleigh, North Carolina and successfully completed his surgical residency in 2022. Tom developed a strong interest in all aspects of his surgical training, from orthopaedics to soft tissue, and emergency surgery to advanced imaging/sports medicine.

Tom subsequently moved back to the UK to be closer to his family, where he lives with his fiancé Hannah who is a small animal veterinarian originally from Tennessee, and their little Dachshund Ellie. Tom’s main interests outside of work revolve around sports, namely football and golf. Too many injuries have forced Tom’s football playing days to end, but that has left him a little more time to spend on the golf course. Tom also enjoys watching Thoroughbred racing, and is looking forward to getting to go to the races again with his Dad, who is an avid fan.
