Dr Amy Dickinson

DVM, DACVECC

Critical Care

Dr Amy attended Tufts University in Massachusetts, USA for both her undergraduate degree as well as veterinary school, and graduated with a DVM in 2006. After vet school Dr Amy completed her rotating internship at the University of Pennsylvania, then returned to Tufts University for her Emergency and Critical Care (ECC) residency. After finishing her residency and obtaining her ACVECC diplomat status Dr Amy started working at the Royal Veterinary College in London for a year before moving back to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, USA to start work at Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center (PVSEC) in 2012.

At PVSEC Dr Amy was the Director of the ECC residency program, a member of the internship committee, and head of the Critical Care service. Dr Amy’s passions are teaching (currently serving on the credentials committee of ACVECC) and treating coagulation abnormalities and use of anticoagulants.

Dr Amy grew up in South Carolina and spent her early adult years in the Boston area, which solidified my love of the Red Sox. Along with her husband, Dr Iain, Amy has two children and enjoys running and competitive swimming.
