Dr Chris Shivelton Queen BSc BVSc MRCVS

I have been a vet since graduating from the University of Bristol (UK) in 2007 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc) and a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry (BSc).

I am a practicing member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS) and currently live and work in the sunny Emirate of Dubai, UAE.

I am a skilled small animal first opinion general practitioner and have a wide experience across both medicine and surgery, including out-of-hours (OOH) and emergency practice.

In addition to my clinical interests, I have a passion for technology, specifically Virtual Reality (VR) & Augmented Reality (AR), and their roles in training and education. I have spoken at a number of conferences around the world on the subject of VR/AR in healthcare and am currently working on projects in this space. This is in addition to my work as an author, publisher and advisor on vet careers and vet school applications (Vet School Success), and previous work as a pet care app developer (Mucky Pup & Purrfect Paws), although I am no longer actively involved with these apps. I was a Highly Commended runner-up in the 2011 Young Marketer of the Year Award, run by The Veterinary Marketing Association. I write regularly for the veterinary press both here in the UAE and UK, with a focus on technology.

When I am not writing my next book or geeking over some technological newbie I can be found leaping from perfectly good aeroplanes and helicopters in the name of adrenaline-fueled fun. I also run ultra-marathons, having first experienced the challenge of endurance sport by completing Ironman Lake Tahoe and Challenge Roth, then taking on the Eiger 101 Ultra Marathon in the Swiss Alps. My next race is the Centurion North Downs Way 100 mile race in the UK, a daunting but exciting propect!
