Associate professor of internal medicine
University of Pennsylvania
Rose Nolen-Walston grew up on a farm in England with plans to become a professional dressage rider but a complete lack of talent for the sport led her to veterinary medicine, where she graduated from UGA in 2001 with her DVM. She did an internship and residency in large animal internal medicine at Tufts before joining the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania in 2006. In 2014 Dr Nolen-Walston won University of Pennsylvania’s Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching, and is the a past president of the Veterinary Comparative Respiratory Society.
