His clinical interests include imaging (radiography and ultrasound), cardiology and surgery. Outside of work two of his main passions are motorcycling and skiing. It is with very great pleasure we announce that Alistair has successfully passed the required membership examinations (written, oral and practical) to gain membership of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Radiology. He has prepared and studied for these rigorous examinations in addition to his normal long working hours. We are all very proud of his achievements.
