The Lincoln Memorial University – Richard A. Gillespie College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM) has named Elizabeth Devine, DVM, MS, DACVS-LA, the associate dean for Student Affairs and Admissions.

“Dr. Devine’s passion for teaching and her extensive experience make her a perfect fit for this new position” said Dean Stacy Anderson, DVM, MVSc, PhD, DACVS-LA.

Devine went to veterinary school at Iowa State University and did an equine surgery and sports-medicine-focused internship at a private practice in Oklahoma. After her internship, she was accepted into an equine surgery residency at Kansas State University (KSU) where she concurrently completed a master’s degree in biomedical sciences. After her residency, she was hired on faculty at KSU as a clinical assistant professor while she passed the American College of Veterinary Surgeons board certification exam. She then accepted a position outside of Seattle in a private practice where she focused on sports medicine and surgery. However, she missed interacting with veterinary students and moved to Harrogate in 2020 to become an assistant professor of large animal surgery at LMU.

“I am so excited to join the leadership team at LMU-CVM.  I feel that this position gives me an opportunity to serve the veterinary students and faculty in a unique way,” Devine said.
