Beata Dubiel, DVM earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in her native Poland, graduating with honors at the top of her class. She finished her program at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004 to become a licensed veterinarian in the United States and has been practising emergency veterinary medicine since then.
Dr. Dubiel continued her education with medical and surgical internships in specialty and referral centres in New York and Florida. As a surgical intern, she was involved in minimally invasive surgery research at Ethicon Endo-Surgery and Purdue University. Dr. Dubiel was one of the first veterinarians in the U.S. trained in NOTES® (Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopy Surgery®), thoracoscopic and minimally invasive abdominal surgeries.
She has published a review study on electromagnetic energy sources in the Journal of Veterinary Surgery and has served as a reviewer for that publication. She also has lectured on minimally invasive surgery at universities across the country.
Outside of work, Dr. Dubiel enjoys international travel, with special interests in wildlife. She and her father, a professor of veterinary medicine, have a small zoo on her grandparents’ property that is home to ponies, deer, peacocks and a variety of wild birds.
