ACVS Foundation
Honored Mentor

Timothy M. Lenehan


Tim’s commitment and integrity to the process of training a surgeon has brought me to a place of confidence and satisfaction with my career that I could not have otherwise achieved without his efforts. I have great admiration and respect for who he is and what he has done for me and others to advance the art of veterinary surgery.

- John J. Haburjak, DVM, DACVS

My surgical successes in life are solely attributable to the mentors that I was fortunate enough to have trained with: Dave Nunamaker, Chuck Newton, Gail Smith, Colin Harvey, and Dudley Johnston. Without their teaching, I would have found little success. The young surgeons, which I have been privileged to train, have unknowingly incorporated my mentors' talents into their methodologies. Mentoring is a way to pass the torch, and with it, a generation of knowledge not always found in books.
