April 27, 2017

The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) is pleased to welcome Dr. Serge Chalhoub to the National Issues Committee. Dr. Chalhoub’s term began on January 1, 2017 and will extend until December 31, 2019. He replaces Dr. Leigh Rosengren, who we thank for her service on the Committee.

Born and raised in Montreal, Dr. Chalhoub graduated from the DVM program at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (FMV) of the University of Montreal in 2004. He then completed a one-year rotating small animal internship at the same institution.

After working for two years as a general practitioner and emergency veterinarian at the DMV Centre in Montreal, Dr. Chalhoub pursued a residency in small animal internal medicine at the Animal Medical Center (AMC) in New York City. Once completed in 2009, he stayed on at the AMC as their first renal/hemodialysis fellow. During this time, he was also trained in interventional radiology/endoscopy (urethral/ureteral/tracheal stents, cystoscopy-assisted ectopic ureter ablation, lithotripsy).

Since July 2012, Dr. Chalhoub has been an instructor at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. He was the recipient of the 2013 Canadian Veterinary Medical Association’s Teacher of the Year Award and the 2015 University of Calgary Team Teacher of the Year Award. He is the co-coordinator of the UCVM-CUPS Pet Health Clinics for disadvantaged Calgarians, which promotes third year DVM students practicing their professional skills and wellness exams with the pets of the tenants of the Calgary Urban Project Society.
