About Julia A Wuerz
Following graduation from the University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002, Dr. Wuerz practiced in a small animal, private practice in Gainesville, Florida for 4 years before returning to UF as a faculty member with Primary Care and Dentistry. She has grown her primary care knowledge to include alternative medicine techniques, while continuing to advance as a primary care and advanced dentistry provider. In addition to clinical work, Dr. Wuerz helped to establish the UF College of Veterinary Medicine Clinical Skills Laboratory and associated clinical skills curriculum. She works to build new models for students to be able to learn and practice technical skills, such as blood draws and palpation, without the use of live animals. She also contributes to student clinical exposure and community support by helping with a monthly after hours student clinic, Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS). During this clinic, she is able to work with veterinary students from all four years with both Western medicine and integrative medicine cases.
My areas of interest include: small animal primary care, small animal dentistry, patient safety studies, and clinical skills education.
