Dallas O. Goble


Dallas Goble took a new vet out of private practice and brought him into the world of academic medicine. While it was an academic residency, he never let me forget to be both practical and humble. I have always said he has forgotten more than I will ever know and that remains true to this day. He will always be my mentor and friend.

Dallas Goble has given of his gifts and talents to help advance my career in the role as a veterinarian, a surgeon, and most importantly as a person with high morals, ethics, and the drive to do and be the best that I could be. His mentoring of me is priceless and has provided me with opportunities for advancement in my career and personal life that opened doors that have helped to build my extremely successful life and career. Dr. Goble’s position and reputation along with his surgical skills have greatly impacted my career. I can honestly say that without him I would not be where I am today. He took a chance on a young woman fresh from two years of equine practice to be one of the first women in the University of Tennessee’s veterinary residency program.

Dr. Goble was instrumental in providing outstanding mentorship in clinics, surgery, ethics, and professionalism. Dr. Goble is one of a kind and his guidance has allowed all of the clinicians he mentored to become excellent surgeons, productive and driven professionals, and better individuals by having the privilege of working with him.
