Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) has named Juan Samper, DVM, Ph.D., Dipl. ACT, as associate dean for clinical affairs. Dr. Samper will have primary responsibility for maintaining the school’s clinical affiliations and overseeing the placement of clinical students.

RUSVM students complete their pre-clinical education on the school’s campus in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean. Students then transition to clinical training at one of more than 20 RUSVM-affiliated veterinary medical institutions in the United States, Canada and Australia.

Dr. Samper, who has owned an equine reproduction practice in Vancouver, Canada, for 20 years, will also teach theriogenology as an RUSVM clinical professor.

“Dr. Samper’s blend of academic and clinical experience aligns well with RUSVM’s mission to educate career-ready veterinarians,” said Elaine Watson, DVM, dean of RUSVM. “Throughout his career, he has balanced practice with teaching, and has tremendous insight into how to best prepare students to transition from the pre-clinical curriculum to clinical training.”
