Dr. Lauren Adelman earned her veterinary degree from the University of Calgary in 2012 where she was part of the inaugural class.

Following graduation, she completed a small animal rotating internship at VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital followed by a one year specialty internship in emergency and critical care at North Carolina State University.

Dr. Adelman then moved to Knoxville where she completed a three year small animal internal medicine residency at the University of Tennessee. She achieved diplomate status in the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Specialty of Small Animal Internal Medicine in 2017.

Dr. Adelman is currently practicing at Canada West Veterinary Specialists in Vancouver, BC., where her particular areas of interest include gastroenterology, nephrology and urology, and infectious disease. She is trained to perform a variety of state of the art minimally-invasive procedures.

Our conversation includes:

  • Working through the rejection of not matching on her first internship residency
  • What life is like completing a residency
  • What Lauren does as an Internal Medicine Specialist
  • Discussion on how Dr. Adelman completes minimally invasive procedures
  • The struggles of achieving work/life balance
  • How she’s handled how emotionally exhausting the profession can be
  • How she’s managing working with difficult pet owners
  • Dealing with COVID-19, maintaining sanity and how Lauren think’s specialty medicine may change as a result
