Dr Camilla Tørnqvist-Johnsen (BSc BVM&S MRCVS)

Senior Training Scholar in Small Animal Internal Medicine

Background

Camilla grew up in Norway and moved to Scotland in 2008 to study Veterinary Medicine. She qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the University of Edinburgh in 2014 with distinction and three awards. Additionally, she acquired a degree in Veterinary Pathology from the Royal Veterinary Collage, London in 2011.

It had been a life-long dream to become a vet and after graduation Camilla moved back to Norway and worked two years in small animal general practice. While working mainly with dogs and cats, she quickly realised her passion for internal medicine. In pursuit of a residency she completed a rotating internship at Fredrikstad Dyrehospital in Norway in 2017 followed by a specialty internal medicine internship at Coral Springs Animal Hospital in the United States in 2018.

Since March 2018, Camilla has been a resident in small animal internal medicine at the Hospital for Small Animals at the University of Edinburgh. She has been fortunate enough to complete a number of research projects in her time at the University and her current research interests are disorders of vitamin D, calcium and magnesium, as well as feline infectious diseases.

Camilla has a special love for Scotland and especially Edinburgh, having spent most of her adult life here. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time in the beautiful nature that Scotland has to offer, studying with her residency colleagues, spending time with friends, and vegan cooking.
