Professor emeritus receives honorary doctorate

Dr. Colin Burrows, a professor emeritus and a former chair of the college’s department of small animal clinical sciences, has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Royal Veterinary College in London. The award was bestowed in recognition of his service to the veterinary profession globally.

An alumnus of the RVC, Dr. Burrows received a Ph.D. in comparative medical sciences from the University of Pennsylvania in 1980 and joined UF’s faculty that year. A board-certified veterinary internist, his specialty was the study of canine and feline gastrointestinal, hepatic and pancreatic disease.

A former president of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association, Burrows also served as program coordinator of the North American Veterinary Conference between 1984 and 2002, becoming its chief executive that year. He is passionate about education, not only for veterinary students but also for veterinary practitioners, particularly those in countries in which companion animal practice is still emerging.
