The Animal Medical Center today announced the appointment of Nahvid Etedali, DVM, DACVIM (SAIM) to Staff Doctor in its Internal Medicine Service. Dr. Etedali joins AMC with strong clinical experience and a specific focus on hemodialysis, hemoperfusion, and therapeutic plasma exchange. He will launch a dialysis program at AMC in 2019.

Previously, Dr. Etedali served as staff internist at Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group in Brooklyn, NY. Dr. Etedali completed a small animal rotating internship at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, where he earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. He then completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital, where he received additional training in hemodialysis, hemoperfusion and therapeutic plasma exchange, including certification through the University of California-Davis Hemodialysis Academy.

“I am pleased to welcome Dr. Etedali to the AMC family. He brings solid clinical capabilities and a strong passion for research and education that will reinforce the highest level of quality patient care in AMC’s Internal Medicine Service,” said Kathryn Coyne, Chief Executive Officer at AMC. “Our Internal Medicine doctors have the specialty training to treat many sub disciplines, including gastroenterology, hepatology, endocrinology, infectious diseases, urology, nephrology, respiratory, hematology and immunology, and Dr. Etedali’s extensive expertise will certainly be an asset to this practice.”

Dr. Etedali has authored two journal articles and was the recipient of an NIH Research Training Program grant for a prospective, observational research project in connection with diagnostic biomarkers for sepsis in dogs.

“I’m thrilled to join the staff of AMC’s Internal Medicine Service,” said Dr. Etedali. “It’s a privilege to work at the largest non-profit animal hospital in the world, and one of the most prestigious teaching veterinary hospitals.”

In his free time, Dr. Etedali enjoys long-distance running, listening to live music, collecting and playing board games, and spending time with his dog, Samson, whom he adopted while in veterinary school.
