Veterinary surgical oncologist, comedian, dog owner, author, writer and so much more! The incomparable Dr. Sarah Boston joined us for a Career Q and A and talked us through her career, getting into comedy, podcasting, speaking, and so much more!
Dr Sarah Boston is a veterinary surgical oncologist who is an ACVS board certified small animal surgeon and an ACVS Founding Fellow of both Surgical Oncology and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery. She practices in the Toronto area and is currently enjoying locum life.
Up until recently, she has spent most of her career in academia as a tenured faculty member at both the University of Guelph and the University of Florida.
Dr Boston is also a best-selling author of the book, LUCKY DOG: HOW BEING A VETERINARIAN SAVED MY LIFE and the creators of The Cageliner, a satirical online newspaper for veterinary professionals. Her newest passion is stand up comedy.
She just completed the Humber College Comedy Performance and Writing Program in 2023, where she won the Award for Academic Excellence in her program and the Tim Sims Encouragement Award for emerging comedic performers.
What I am saying is Sarah is a bit of a nerd, regardless of what she is doing. She is a regular performer on the Rising Stars show at YukYuks Comedy club in Toronto.
Sarah just started a podcast called Comedicine, where she talks to other healthcare professionals (human and animals) who are also comedians. She is
working out how to bring comedy into veterinary medicine because she believes veterinarians need to laugh more.
