Toby Gemmill, RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Surgery and Clinical Director at Willows Referral Service, has been elected as the next chair of the AOVET European board.


Willows Clinical Director elected as chair of AOVET European board


AOVET is one of the four clinical divisions of the AO group (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen), a global organisation dedicated to improving patient outcomes through research and education in orthopaedics. The other clinical divisions are for human orthopaedics and include Trauma, Spine and Craniomaxillofacial surgery.

Toby's role as chair of the European board will include organising and overseeing AOVET courses, helping to develop new educational material, and training younger surgeons to become faculty and teach on courses.

Toby said: 'I feel very honoured to be elected to this post. My main aim for the next few years is to cement AOVET's position as a global leader in the provision of postgraduate orthopaedic education, and ultimately to improve surgeons' understanding, decision making and technical abilities, for the benefit of the patients under their care.'
