Dr. Woolcock completed a bachelor’s degree in zoology and his veterinary training at Michigan State University. He then pursued advanced training through an internship at North Carolina State University and a residency in small animal internal medicine at the University of Georgia. During his time at UGA, Dr. Woolcock completed an interdisciplinary training program with a focus in university teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Dr. Woolcock achieved board certification from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2015, and joined the faculty of Purdue University in the same year. Dr. Woolcock’s clinical and research interests are in immune-mediated diseases of dogs and cats. Dr. Woolcock’s research program investigates oxidative stress and its impact on the inflammatory milieu of immune-mediated diseases, with a clinical goal of exploring the therapeutic utility of antioxidants in small animal inflammatory disease states. A passionate teacher, Dr. Woolcock also works with a multi-institutional group of veterinary educators to explore various questions pertaining to veterinary training and scholarship.
