  • Dr Gerardo Poli BVSc (Hons Class 1) MVS (Small Animal Practice) MANZCVS (Emergency & Critical Care)

    Gerardo completed his Bachelor of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland in 2008, graduating with first-class honours and being awarded year valedictorian. He moved on to spend 3 years in small animal practice, transitioning into emergency and critical care with the Animal Emergency Service, where he is now an AES veterinary director.

    In 2012 Gerardo achieved Membership with the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Emergency and Critical Care and for 3 years held position of head Membership examiner for ECC. He also completed his Masters of Veterinary Studies in Small Animal Practice through Murdoch University.

    Gerado’s interest in teaching saw him move into a clinical training role with AES, so he could help vets transition into emergency practice. He became the coordinator of the AES Internship Program and in collaboration with the clinical training team, the AES Accelerated Emergency Program was developed.

    Gerardo continues to have a strong interest in the management of critically ill patients, diagnostic imaging and emergency surgery and he works with Improve International Australia as the AEP curriculum developer and advisor.
