Education Consultant, University of Toronto
Dr. Kate Hodgson works in both veterinary and human medical education. She is a medical educator for continuing professional development on the faculty of medicine at the University of Toronto and also teaches in the department of family and community medicine.
Hodgson regularly speaks and publishes articles on "one health," the concept of uniting human and veterinary medicine, with a focus on zooeyia and activating pets as a health resource within the family. She practiced mixed animal medicine and companion animal medicine, which she describes as "a mixture of the complexity of geriatric medicine in a pediatric, non-speaking patient," for 10 years.
Hodgson received a doctoral degree in veterinary medicine from Cornell University Veterinary School in 1992 and a master's degree in health science in family and community medicine with a focus on continuing medical education from the University of Toronto in 2005.
