Dr. Collin Wolff received both his bachelor’s and veterinary degrees from Cornell University, where he was recognized for academic excellence graduating summa cum laude and with distinction in research honors. Dr. Wolff went on to advance his clinical training by completing two one-year veterinary internships: the first a general small animal internship rotating through medicine, surgery, and other specialty services at the Animal Medical Center in New York City and the second a surgical internship at the Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center. His formal training in small animal surgery culminated in a three-year academic residency at Texas A&M University, following which Dr. Wolff successfully completed all requirements of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS) and attained diplomate status as a board-certified veterinary surgeon. Dr. Wolff has published numerous articles on basic science research as well as clinical research. During his residency, the ACVS Foundation awarded Dr. Wolff a competitive research grant to investigate the prevalence of methicillin-resistant staphylococci, a multi-drug resistant bacteria increasingly implicated in surgical site infections, in dogs with orthopedic disease.
