My name is Leah McGlinchey, I graduated with an Honors Bachelor’s Degree in Veterinary Medicine (MVB) in 2011 from UCD, Dublin and I am currently a third-year surgery resident at Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. I was born in Ireland and grew up around horses from a young age. Through involvement in a variety of disciplines including show-jumping, eventing and horseracing I gained a broad and extensive understanding of the equine industry. Following graduation, I moved to Lexington, Kentucky where I did a surgical internship at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. After my internship, I moved to North Yorkshire, UK and worked in a busy ambulatory practice for 6 months before moving to Hong Kong where I completed a second internship at the Hong Kong Jockey Club. There, I gained an extensive knowledge of the Thoroughbred racing industry. I look forward to finishing my residency program and hope to work mainly with racehorses. I am passionate about my work, enjoy traveling and am happy to move around the world wherever my job may bring me.
