ACVS Foundation
Honored Mentor

Michael L. Huber


Dr. Huber was the backbone of our residencies, without him, we wouldn’t have had a residency program. He was an excellent teacher and mentor and helped us learn through a hands-on approach. Dr. Huber was always there for us and helped push us to be better and step outside our comfort zones. He was also there to back us up if we got in over our heads. Thank you, Dr. Huber!

Dr. Huber was vital to my surgical residency. He worked really closely with all of us to help improve our skills. He helped push me to step out of my comfort zone in order to improve, whether that was making my first TPLO cut or closing my first R&A, he was always there for support and guidance. I feel very fortunate to have trained and learned from him. Thank you so much!

Dr. Huber, or Papa Huber as residents come to know him by, has been a great mentor. He's always open for advice and was always there to back us up, even if it meant being on call all the time. He also gives us tough love when we need it. I'm grateful to have trained with him.

Dr. Huber was a wonderful mentor and he prepared me for life after residency. He continues to offer support and is someone I readily call on when in need. Dr. Huber is like a second dad to his residents – mentoring them in surgery and all facets of life. I feel very fortunate that I was able to learn from him.
