Essex-based Sarah Mason MRCVS, someone who already has more qualifications than could be stored on the Internet, has now achieved an industry-first by being the first clinician to be recognised as a Specialist in both oncology and radiation oncology.

Sarah, who practices at Southfields Veterinary Specialists, was already a European and Royal College Specialist in oncology. Now, after studying for a year and passing the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ECVIM) exams this autumn, she has now been recognised as a European Specialist in radiation oncology as well. 

Sarah said: "I intend to use my experience to grow the radiation and oncology service at Southfields and, with the benefit of our new linear accelerator and state-of-the-art hospital, deliver the most advanced treatment options for our veterinary patients. 

"I also intend to use my experience and expertise to contribute to the further development of radiation oncology as a specialist qualification in Europe."

Congratulations Sarah!
