Dr Hannah Darcy
MA VetMB MVetMed DACVIM MRCVS
Hannah hails from the UK, growing up in a small village near the coastal town of Brighton (approximately 17,000km from Brighton, VIC). Although designated the ‘village vet’ from primary school, Hannah officially underwent her training at Cambridge University, graduating in 2013. During that time she intercalated in philosophy, which she blames at partly responsible for her love of lengthy chats with clients.
Following her veterinary degree, Hannah worked as a mixed-practice vet in rural Herefordshire for two years. This proved a fun, challenging, and downright eye-opening experience, and certainly resulted in a healthy appreciation for the difficulties facing first-opinion practitioners. Eventually, the cold nights of calvings proved sufficient incentive to move into small animal work, and Hannah moved to the Royal Veterinary College (London) to complete a rotating internship. Working under the guidance of world-leading experts in veterinary medicine was a fantastic opportunity, and Hannah stayed on to undertake her residency in Internal Medicine. During this time she published in both JAVMA and JFMS, and presented at BSAVA and ECVIM. Hannah finished her residency in 2019, culminating in fulfilling her credentials to become a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (DACVIM). After working as a locum in referral practices for six months, the lure of the sunshine pulled Hannah over to Sydney, where she is currently enjoying all the sights and sounds of this wonderful city.
Hannah enjoys all aspects of Internal Medicine, although has a particular love of endocrinology, gastroenterology and immunology. She is passionate about veterinary education and client communication, and is more than happy to chat about any puzzling cases! Outside of work, Hannah is interested in anything sport-related, and can frequently be found in Sydney’s outdoor pools and exploring scenic trail runs
