Dr. Lucinda Dixon Joins LMU-CVM to Teach Anatomy
Lincoln Memorial University-College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM) welcomes Lucinda Jo Dixon, DVM, as assistant professor of anatomy. Dixon will be the course coordinator for a new second-year veterinary anatomy courses and the course director for the first-semester Applied Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology course.
“I am thrilled to join the LMU-CVM veterinary anatomy team. I have loved teaching anatomy for almost a decade and am excited to be involved in the creation of a new course that will focus on clinically relevant veterinary anatomy,” Dixon said. “I have experience in equine exclusive and small animal general practice as well as veterinary acupuncture. Throughout my clinical practice, I became increasingly aware of the importance of anatomical knowledge and the link between structure and function of the animal.”
Before joining LMU-CVM, Dixon served as lecturer of biological science at Auburn University and an associate professor of biological science for Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. She is a member of the Kentucky Academy of Science and the American Veterinary Medical Association and is a certified veterinary medical acupuncturist.
Dixon has a unique background and skill set in the equine industry and veterinary medicine. She received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010 where she gained experience in equine field medicine and surgery in her preceptorship under Dr. Victor Torres. She completed a postgraduate internship in 2011 at Equine Services Medical and Surgical Hospital in Simpsonville, Kentucky, before accepting a position as associate veterinarian at Snodgrass Veterinary Medical Center offering primary medical and surgical care for small and large animals. Dixon also managed a small herd of broodmares and breeding stallions for 17 years as co-owner of Noble Heritage Saddlebreds. In 2015 she served as an integrative veterinary care practitioner for Heartland Veterinary Hospital.
“We are very fortunate to have Dr. Dixon join our anatomy team,” said Dr. Stacy Anderson, Dean of LMU-CVM. “She will bring a fresh, clinical focus to our anatomy curriculum as we move into our revised curriculum and look toward the future of veterinary anatomy education.”
