Stephen J. Birchard


I believe a teacher’s ultimate dream is that their students will succeed in whatever they choose to do. I have had the good fortune to be surrounded by very gifted  residents over the years, making my mentoring very easy. Watching my residents pursue their passion and reach their goals has been one of the joys of my life. I am honored beyond words to be recognized by them. Thank you!

Stephen J. Birchard, DVM, MS, DACVS

Dr. Birchard was very influential in my development as a surgeon during residency training at the Ohio State University. I learned a lot from Steve, who is a very experienced clinician, skilled surgeon, and good communicator. I also remember him being encouraging and extremely patient with me; the latter being a quality I needed in abundance. Steve was a solid mentor and I am extremely grateful for the instrumental part that he played in my training.
