Dr. Philip Hyndman of the Animal Medical Center in New York City

Philip Hyndman graduated from Massey University’s Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 2012. He started his career in mixed animal practice in rural New Zealand. This position provided him a unique exposure to a high case load of working dog injuries requiring surgical intervention. Driven to provide the best surgical care, he directed his focus to becoming a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. During the following three years he completed two rotating internships, a surgical internship, and a Master’s of Veterinary Medicine. Philip now continues his path at the Animal Medical Center as a surgical resident.
