Dr. Tatiana Weisbrod

Dr. Tatiana Weisbrod is the current University of Florida Aquatic Animal Medicine Resident. We are thrilled that Dr. Weisbrod is continuing her training here at UF with our program. She has previously completed the AAH internship and is working on finishing her MS work on diagnostic strategies and management of parasitic enteritis in the Florida manatee. As she begins her residency, she plans to continue her research, go through local clinical rotations, and assist in clinical cases when needed. She will then enhance her clinical training at Bush Gardens Tampa and then SeaWorld for her residency training. She looks forward to continue to work with the program and its partners.
