UF veterinary pathologist named director of admissions
Julia A. Conway, D.V.M., has been named veterinary medical admissions director at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.
In her new role, Conway provides key assistance to the college’s associate dean for students and instruction, Pamela Ginn, D.V.M. She provides additional support to accommodate the demands of an increased class size, an upcoming curriculum review process and an upcoming American Veterinary Medical Association accreditation process, said the college’s dean, James W. Lloyd, D.V.M., Ph.D.
“Dr. Conway’s primary focus will be the oversight of admissions and recruitment,” Lloyd said. “Additionally, she will oversee the Office for Students and Instruction when the associate dean needs to be away.”
A member of the college’s class of 2006, Conway completed her residency in anatomic pathology at the UF veterinary college and became board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists in 2010. She subsequently joined the college faculty as a clinical assistant professor in the department of infectious diseases and pathology, where her focus is dermatopathology.
Conway has served as chair of the college’s alumni council since 2012. She holds a joint appointment in the UF College of Medicine’s department of dermatology and was recently nominated by the Alachua Veterinary Medical Association to run for a position on the Florida Veterinary Medical Association’s District 2 Budget and Finance Committee in this year’s election.
The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine is supported through funding from UF Health and the UF Institute of Food of Agricultural Sciences, or IFAS.
