Members of the RCVS council have elected Amanda Boag as the college’s new junior vice-president.
She will take up her role at the college’s annual meetings on 7 July, replacing the outgoing junior vice-president professor Stephen May who will become president of the college for 2017-8.
Ms Boag graduated from the University of Cambridge Department of Veterinary Medicine in 1998 and undertook two small animal internships at the RVC and the University of Pennsylvania in the US.
She returned to the RVC for a residency and remained as a lecturer in emergency and critical care from 2003 to 2008, where she was involved in the running of both the referral and first-opinion emergency service.
In September 2008, she took up her current role of clinical director at Vets Now, where she oversees clinical and professional standards across the group.
She has been an elected member of RCVS council since 2012 and RCVS treasurer since 2014. She has also served as a member of the education committee and the preliminary investigation committee/disciplinary liaison committee.
Council member Kate Richards has also been elected as chairman of the standards committee, replacing David Catlow.
Susan Dawson, head of the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science, was also reconfirmed as chairman of the education committee, a position she has held since 2016.
