The UF College of Veterinary Medicine has named Dr. Christopher Adin as chair of the college’s department of small animal clinical sciences.

Adin previously served on the college faculty as an assistant professor of small animal surgery between 2001 and 2006. He presently serves as an associate professor of soft tissue and oncologic surgery in the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s department of clinical sciences, a position he has held since 2015. Prior to that, he was as an associate professor at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, having joined the faculty at OSU in 2008 after two years in private practice at a veterinary surgery specialty practice in Rochester, N.Y.

A board-certified small animal surgeon, Adin received his D.V.M. from Cornell University in 1996. He completed his residency in small animal surgery at the University of California/Davis College of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to that, he completed a fellowship in hemodialysis and renal medicine, also at UC/Davis.

Adin has invented two surgical devices that are currently used in small animal surgery practices around the world. He also has trained more than 1,500 veterinary students in basic surgical skills over thousands of hours in laboratory teaching in the course of his academic career. He has served as president of the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s teaching academy since 2017, and has occupied numerous leadership roles at N.C. State during his tenure there, as well as at OSU when he was on faculty there.

He received the OSU Class of 2015’s Excellence in Teaching Award and was nominated for the Zoetis Teaching Award while at OSU. In addition, he has served as an associate editor of Veterinary Surgery since 2015.

Adin will officially begin his new role at UF on Sept. 1.
