Dr. John Schlipf
Dr. John Schlipf is retiring from the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine on June 30th after 20 years of service. Dr. Schlipf is the Service Head of Large Animal Medicine and the Program Director for the Large Animal Medicine Clinical Fellowship program. Over the years he has won many teaching awards, mentored over a dozen residents, and has been perennially honored by graduating classes as a Marshall or Hooder. The Class of 2020 elected him to be their graduation speaker and in that role, he dispensed practical wisdom, a few stories, and good advice to all attendees of the virtual graduation ceremony, while eliciting some tears.
Dr. Schlipf has been an integral part of patient care in the Large Animal Hospital, dedicated teacher to a generation of veterinary students and valuable colleague in the CCVM. His special interests in equine ocular and neurologic disorders and pain management have led to innovative research and improved clinical techniques. We wish him the best on his next endeavors and thank him for his contributions to the education of veterinary students and to the health and welfare of innumerable large animal patients over the past 20 years.
