My name is Carolin Chiwitt and I graduated from the University of Gießen (Germany) in 2008. After graduation I prepared a doctoral thesis about the regeneration of retinal ganglion cells at the University of Münster (Germany). Afterwards I undertook a general internship in a small animal referral clinic in Germany. In 2012 I moved to UK and completed an ophthalmological internship at the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket. My residency at Willows Referral Service started in 2013 under the supervision of Heidi Featherstone and Christine Heinrich.
