New Faculty Member
Emily Miller Joins CVM

Emily Miller, DVM, DACVS-SA, has joined the MU College of Veterinary Medicine as an assistant teaching professor of small animal surgery.

Miller, who specializes in soft tissue surgery, said her clinical interests include surgical oncology and critical care surgery. She was drawn to MU because of the “active oncology program and the friendly, collegial members of the college community,” she said.

After receiving her doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Virginia Tech, Miller completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery in Charlotte, N.C., and a small animal surgical internship in Dallas. She completed her surgical residency training at Iowa State University and served as assistant professor of small animal surgery at Virginia Tech before coming to MU. Miller is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.

Her main responsibility will entail providing coverage for the soft tissue surgery service. She also will be involved in training house officers and veterinary students at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, as well as teaching pre-clinical veterinary students through didactic lectures and laboratories.

Miller said as a veterinarian she enjoys being an advocate for patients and involving clients in decisions about their pets’ care.

“Each client and patient has unique needs, and my job is to work with the clients to come up with the best solution for their unique situation,” she said.

In her free time, Miller enjoys running, traveling and reading. She shares her home with Marvin, a “very handsome” Flemish giant house rabbit, she said.
