Dr. Erik Hofmeister talks about veterinary medicine as well as the finances of veterinarians and really gives some insight into those who are physicians but not human physicians.

He is a board-certified anesthesiologist, a diplomat of the American and European Colleges of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia. He received his DVM from Washington State University in 2000 and then did an internship in small animal medicine and surgery.

He did a residency in anesthesia at Georgia and then stayed on faculty there from 2004-2016, where he was a section chief for surgery and earned master's degrees in health promotion of behavior and sport pedagogy. He served as a department chair for surgery at Midwestern from 2016-2019, and then went to Auburn where he is the professor of anesthesia there.

He is a deputy editor of The Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia journal. And his research interests include the scholarship of teaching and learning evidence-based decision making and measurement and testing.
