Jamie R. Bellah


I feel so fortunate to have been mentored by dedicated, caring faculty that were an inspiration to me as a veterinary student, during my internship, my residency training and as a young faculty member. Their encouragement, guidance and examples, as clinician, surgeon, educator and colleague were instrumental in my accomplishments as an ACVS Diplomate, faculty member and educator. I hope that at least in part, I have been able to pass along the guidance that contributed so positively toward my career to those I had a role in training as we worked together.  For me personally, it has truly been a joy and privilege to teach and to learn from veterinary students, interns, and residents during my career. The opportunity to spend a major portion of my career as a veterinary clinician and faculty member teaching surgery has been a gift, and I am sincerely humbled to be recognized as an honored mentor.
